Students will learn using the outschool interface. Students will interact and comment with questions during the live session through chat or through the interface. Students will learn the information using powerpoints and lectures. Students will learn to write stronger paragraphs by understanding what makes up a strong paragraph (Topic Sentence, Supporting Details, Concluding Sentence.) My teaching style involves a question/answer format where I encourage students to reach the answer...
SW (Students WIll) 1. SW string 5-7 coherent sentences together. This paragraph will include a topic sentence along with a thesis statement. 2. SW write two separate paragraphs. 3. From the two separate paragraphs, SW identify the Topic Sentence, Supporting Detail, and Concluding Sentence. 4. SW make their paragraphs more interesting by 1. turning Topic sentence into an introduction question, 2. Adding more supporting detail, and 3, turn concluding sentence into a cliff hanger for more writing in the future.
In order to be promoted to the next grade level, student needs to have strong writing skills. Strong writing skills starts with being able to write strong and coherent paragraphs.
Due to the fact that this is one class, students will not be assigned any homework but they will be assigned time to complete the work during class. If they do not complete the work, this will be due the following week via the platform. For extra practice, I give optional assignments.
Paper, pencil, eraser, lap top. tablet...anything to write with!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will share their work either by being spotlighted or by showing the teacher.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
