Class Experience

Standards aligned with Common Core Literacy: 

Students will learn how to: 
analyze how a work of fiction draws on themes, patterns of events, or character types 
cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze its development over the course of the text, including its relationship to the characters, setting, and plot; provide an objective summary of the text
analyze how a theme from a literary work develops over time and fits into the historical context 
analyze how a work of nonfiction uses persuasive techniques to convey an idea
determine the meaning of words and phrases and how they are used in a text

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
class discussion
Optional mindmap at end
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
These discussions will revolve around secular, philosophical constructs during which any discussions around world religions will be carefully monitored but not halted, provided they are conducted in a respectful way. Young children’s experience is already replete with philosophical questioning and meaning. They have strong, even visceral, intuitions of what is beautiful and ugly, fair and unfair, right and wrong. They enjoy playing with language and are intrigued by logical puzzles. Children are full of questions – and, significantly, many of their questions have philosophical content. And, in the class, the bigger questions – what it means to be alive, how to be good, what is the purpose of human life – are given the appropriate space to be debated and discussed.
