This class is taught in English.
Throughout the 14 weeks, students will be guided through a variety of texts (short stories, poems, essays, novels, nonfiction, etc.) from a variety of global perspectives. New material will be provided during each class. Students will learn grade-level appropriate vocabulary, grammar, writing skills. Soft skills such as executive functioning and active listening will also be reinforced.
I am a nationally award-winning veteran educator with more than 15 years of classroom and administrative experience. I am certified to teach English, ESL, and Gifted in both Georgia and Texas. I have also taught the College Board's AP Language & Composition and AP Literature for 11 years. My work has been published in The NY Times, Huffington Post, NCTE's English Journal, ASCD, and Language Magazine. I received a B.A. in English and an M.Ed. in Secondary English Education from Georgia State University. I am currently pursuing my doctorate in Educational Leadership from Arkansas State University, where my focus is equity and culturally affirming learning environments.
Homework will consist of a weekly journal entry that includes elements of research, analysis, and synthesis (generating new ideas based upon what they just learned). Students should expect to allocate 1-2 hours for reading and homework each week.
During our 1st semester of this course, students are not required to purchase any novels. We will be primarily focusing on nonfiction, short stories, excerpts from novels, and poems. I will provide digital copies of all course materials.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Two original video essays (mid-term and final) will also be required during the course.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
As with all literature courses, there will sometimes be challenging topics. When these topics arise, we will approach them in an equitable, respectful manner. All voices will be heard and respected equally.
During 1st semester of this course, students are not required to purchase any novels. We will be primarily focusing on nonfiction, short stories, excerpts from novels and plays, and poems. I will provide digital copies of all course materials.
