Description

Class Experience

Students will learn through discussion about different genres and styles of writing. Learners will learn about 'judging a book by its cover' as we take a look at designs, the elements of a book cover and how to set out their own design. Students will learn about blurbs on books and how to write their own. 
Socially, students will practice listening to others' opinions, responding respectfully and allowing each other to have time to speak. Learners will practice sharing their own thoughts and opinions and contributing positively to the discussion. 
Reading and writing are my passions and as well as majoring in English at university, I've almost 20 years’ experience in teaching English in primary schools (4-11-year-olds). Over those years I have worked regularly with groups of children specifically on English writing skills. I've run story reading times in both public libraries and school and encouraging a love of reading in children is one of the greatest achievements I could hope for!
My favourite lessons have always been when I can find out what interests and motivates a student and use those interests to engage a learner and build their confidence.
Homework is not assigned in this class. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
A printout of the cover and back of a book is provided for use during class. The pages may be printed back to back or separately as preferred. Students will need something to write and draw with and any preferred colouring pens/ pencils. Students are encouraged to bring along copies of their favourite books to show. Due to time constraints, each student will be given a chance to talk about one book/ author if they like. If everyone has had a chance to share and if time allows, we may be able to share more than one favourite but this is not guaranteed.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment during class.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
No parental guidance issues are anticipated in this class. Students are asked to share books which are appropriate for the class and not of a gory or disturbing nature. 
The books discussed will depend on student sharing. 
We will look at the covers of a few varied books, which may include authors such as Lemony Snicket, Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss, David Walliams, Julia Donaldson, Anne Fine, etc
