This is class #4 "Going Down?" in a series of one-time classes that will look at one mystery and an accompanying animated illustration of a crime. Each class is different and students do not have to attend the classes in any certain order. The student may attend one or all in the series. Students can help solve a "Who Dun It" in every session. So, if you are trying to get your child interested in reading, this class will help. The students will work together to test out their best...
Student will learn to examine texts and accompanying pictures for details. Student will learn how to join information found from the text and make inferences based on this information. Students will learn to provide proof for their assertions as well as make a logical argument for their opinions.
Who doesn't like to read something suspenseful, funny, or exciting? The key to engaging students is to find literature that appeals to them. Stories must be exciting and different. These are the types of literary works I use for my classes. I have had tremendous success in reaching students who hate to read. So, join me as we become detectives for a day. I have 20+ years of teaching experience in English and English literature. I hold a bachelor's degree in Journalism with a minor in Spanish. I also hold a College Reading and Learning (CRLA) certification as well as having years of experience as a writing consultant for our local college.
Students have the option to read the passage to the mystery before class begins. The illustration will be revealed during class.
The story and the illustration will be shown during class. You will not need to read prior to the class session or print anything beforehand.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parental guidance is not necessary, but always welcome. The stories and illustrations for this class are age appropriate and do not involve extreme violence, blood, or gore. The readings also do not involve murder although the illustrations may show a person who fell and became temporarily unconscious.
