Creative Writing: An Introduction 6th-8th

Description:

In this class, students will explore the three major genres of creative writing: poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction. Our goal will be simply to experiment—to try out new styles and ways of writing.

Students will read and write all three genres as they discover how to use sensory details and strong verbs effectively, construct plots, build interesting characters, and turn their own experiences into creative works of art. They will learn about and engage with the creative process to transform their ideas into polished, ready-to-share pieces.

Assignments will include experimenting with haiku, sestina, short story, flash fiction, literary journalism, and braided essay. Students will also keep a journal. All will finish with a portfolio of revised work. Our last class will be a Reading Party (complete with snacks), in which students will get to present and celebrate the work they have accomplished! Materials Needed:

  • ​1 dedicated 8.5 x 11" spiral bound/college rued notebook for journaling (this will be turned in from time to time, so it shouldn't have any other school work in it that the student might need throughout the week)
  • 1 three-ring binder for organizing notes, handouts, readings, etc. (can be shared with other subjects)
  • Pencils in class - no pens

IEW 6th - 8th

Description:

 

Does your child struggle to get a single sentence on the page when you give him a writing assignment? Or when asked for a summary, does your child respond with a 10-page paragraph? Young writers need help with both what to say and how to say it, and Andrew Pudewa’s Institute for Excellence in Writing method provides an objective structure with which to guide students as they learn to write. In this year-long course, students will learn pre-writing skills such as note-taking, outlining, and brainstorming. They will practice composition structures including paragraphs, fiction and non-fiction summaries, reports, creative writing, formal essays, and book or movie critiques. They will also learn important writing skills such as effective word choice, sentence variety, and organization. For students who took IEW with me in 2016-17, I will use all new source texts for the 2017-18 class, but we will work through the 9 IEW units again with pacing similar to last year’s class.

What you can expect from the co-op instructor:

  • a weekly homework calendar with instructions as a recommended plan for pacing the homework throughout your week
  • a clear checklist and point system so that students know how to be successful on assignments
  • weekly email reports from the teacher with a brief summary of what we did in class and hints for helping your student with homework
  • firm deadlines to motivate students to complete weekly goals
  • increasing challenge throughout the year: we will start with  2 single-paragraph assignments per week and gradually increase to 5-paragraph assignments
  • faithful implementation of the IEW instructional method
  • weekly grading of student work along with mid-term and final grade reports each semester
  • teacher is available to help with questions and needs via text, email, and phone

Home teacher responsibilities:

  • keep your student accountable to complete daily and weekly work (homework calendar should make this easy—just get him going each day and he should be able to work pretty independently)
  • help your student with editing compositions for spelling, grammar, and mechanics issues (instructor’s grading will focus on content, organization, and completion of IEW elements of style)
  • home teachers may modify assignments according to student needs, for instance, in the case of learning disabilities
  • communicate any questions, problems, concerns, and suggestions to the instructor

Other information you may want to know:

1. All formal IEW assignments must be typed. If your student is not accustomed to this, please have him practice a bit this summer with a program that teaches the “home keys.” I have found that a student’s typing ability improves dramatically just by typing weekly writing assignments. Typing will also make editing much easier. Other assignments, such as outlines and brainstorming activities, may be handwritten.

2. Parent involvement is required for this class, particularly if your child struggles with writing. I am happy to be a “consultant” in this and will gladly take phone calls to discuss issues. I have experience working with both fluent writers as well as dyslexic students.

Intermediate Science 4th-6th

Description:


This class is still geared towards having fun while doing science. However, the intention is to provide some critical thinking skills that allow the students to figure out the “why” and “how” of science.  This spring we will be learning about electricity and magnets, which is a topic that lends its self well to many “oohs” and “awhs”.  We will learn about electrons, circuits, conductors, insulators, batteries, as well as some history and scientists who have impacted the study of this area.  Join us for what will be shocking experience this semester!

 

This class is intended for grades 4-6.

Intro to Chemistry & Physics 8th - 10th

Description:

This class is designed to be a stepping stone into harder and more math dependant sciences students will encounter in high school, and will spend half the year on chemistry topics and half on physics.   It can also be used to fulfill high school science credit for students who are not science oriented.  The class will use BJU Press’s Physical Science text, and most certainly can be used to fulfill a physical science high school credit; however, other material will be used to build skills that will help students be successful in harder sciences.  Some of these topics will include algebraic manipulation of equations, metric and English conversions, reading of scientific graphs and charts, critical thinking skills applied to science word problems, and the use of the scientific method in both experiments and lab write ups.  Although this might sound daunting, it will be taught in a consistent, step-by-step, encouraging manner preparing the student for an academic undertaking of other science classes.  Students will also gain experience in note taking, study skills and time management as they learn to prepare and organize for class.   Creation science will be an underlying theme that is emphasized as often as possible.  In the end, this class will intermingle a fun, learning experience with a pursuit of some higher level thinking skills.

Math in Action 6th - 12th

Description:

 

This 12 week class will be full of energy, action, and math!  We will be focusing on hands on projects and applications of math concepts students have been or are learning in their math classes.  We may even include a few simple physics projects as well.  When the weather permits, we will be working on projects that require us to be outside.  There will be some math to work out in class in order to fully understand our projects.  The geometry of kite making is one example of the projects we will be working on.  I will be selecting projects based on the math skills of the students enrolled in the class. 

There will be very little homework in the class.  On occasion, students will need to draw, design, color, etc a project we are working on and there may be an occasional math problem or two to work on for full understanding.

I am looking forward to teaching this class and letting the students see their math put to use in real life applications!  Can math be fun??? YES it can!

Personal Finance 9th-12th

Description:

Did you know that less than half of all high school seniors qualify as financially literate, while more than 7 million borrowers are currently in default on student loans for college? Students today are facing tremendous financial challenges, yet most lack the basic knowledge needed to thrive in our modern economy. 

Dave Ramsey's Foundations in Personal Finance course will change the financial future of your high school-aged students and set them on the path to win with money, by changing the way they think about money forever.  Based on Biblical principles, this top-rated curriculum includes a series of informative videos featuring Dave and his team of experts, as well as over 100 activities created with a student-centered, competency-based approach to learning. 

This is NOT going to be a boring finance class. Instead, students will be engaged and entertained throughout the semester, as they become empowered and equipped to confidently make their own financial decisions for the rest of their lives. Together, the videos, activities, class discussions and guest speakers will teach students how to avoid debt, budget with intention, invest wisely, and build wealth, so that someday, they can "live and GIVE like no-one else."  

For maximum learning, participants in this course will be expected to attend class regularly, and required to do short weekly homework assignments related to the information presented and discussed in class.  There will also be a chapter test each week to assess students' understanding of the material.  I look forward to guiding your students as they discover "God's and Grandma's way of handling money."

Picturing America 3rd-5th

Description:

When I was a child in school, I always enjoyed when the Picture Lady would come to my classroom and share beautiful works of art while explaining the history and background that went along with the art. My class loved hearing the stories about AMerica and the art spoke for itself. For me, this made the past come alive and made me want to learn more about our great country.

 

During this enrichment class, I will include some fun art projects to be completed during class, art appreciation, Patriotic music, and of course American history.

 

We will be looking at the following pieces... ​The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, Washington Crossing the Delaware, Benjamin Franklin, Silver of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries, The Oxbow, The Last of the Mohicans, Sans Arc Lakota, State Capital, Columbus, Ohio, County Elections, Veteran in a New Field, Abraham Lincoln, Portrait of a Boy, Freedom Speech, March for Voting Rights, Boating Party, House by the Railroad, American Landscape, Brooklyn Bridge, Sources of Country Music, Migrant Mother and Quilts.

Public Speaking 6th - 8th

Description:

We can and we must be able to give an account for the hope that lies within us.  We have been given the ability to speak and what more important skill is there, than to learn to speak well in front of others and to share the gospel. This class is based on a wonderful curriculum put out by Communicators for Christ called Beginning Public Speaking.  Students will practice speaking in front of others (something we can’t practice at home very well) by doing informative speeches, impromptu, and recitation to name a few.  This will be a wonderful opportunity for your student to learn or improve their ability to communicate.

Benefits to Students

  • Increases understanding of technical concepts and speaking principles
  • Provides real-world experience within the classroom.
  • Encourages abstract thought, self-directed learning, and problem solving
  • Promotes participation and ability to take coaching and advice from others.
  • Produces confidence in being in front of others.

Research Paper 9th-12th

Description:

The ability to calmly, confidently stand one’s ground in an argument (which need not descend into a quarrel) and offer a reasonable defense of what one deems to be true is a Kingdom-building skill that seems increasingly rare.  If truth is to be built into a culture, the Church is “the foundation and pillar” thereof.  And so, we must teach the youth to reason and argue well.

Over the 12 weeks of this course, the student will “invent” an argument that understands and solves a controversial problem in society/culture/government/economics.  Inventing an argument will come from using the “common topics” to ask dozens and dozens of questions about the problem the student wants to solve.  The answers and solutions will be arranged in a highly structured “Six Parts of a Discourse.” Skills honed in this process will include: 1) discerning credible and non-credible sources; 2) ensuring sufficient proof and warrant for claims made; 3) contending with the best arguments of those who oppose one’s thesis; 4) writing with clarity and brevity; 5) avoiding informal fallacies; 6) using the 3 modes of persuasion: ethos, pathos, and logos; 7) using a master outline to build the written discourse; 8) properly documenting sources.

The attentive, passionate student will create a final product that prepares them for college-level research and, more importantly, comes with a feeling of “job well done.”

(Access to a computer during the class period is strongly recommended. I will be monitoring and commenting on sources that the student contacts through the internet.)

Spanish 1 7th - 12th

Description:

Spanish 1, (part I) is a 16 weeks class for 7th-12th graders. Previous Spanish classes can be helpful for new students, but they are not necessary or required at all. We will start from scratch and move up. Spanish I (part I) introduces the students to basic vocabulary, personal pronouns, descriptive adjectives, feelings, professions, among others.  They will be introduced to the Present tense of some regular verbs and few irregular yet useful verbs. In Spanish, understanding the verb “to be”=”ser” & “estar” is very important and can be a little bit confusing.  This semester is important for the understanding of when and how to use it. A more specific syllabus will be provided at beginning of the semester but you can call me or e-mail if you have specific questions or concerns.

Talking Hands: More Signs! 6th-12th

Description:

  

 “Talking Hands: More Signs”  is a continuation and revisiting of the class taught last semester and will teach students beginning signs in order to learn how to begin to communicate through Sign Language.  Do you use your hands a lot when you talk?  Do you use lots of facial expressions when trying to get a point across?  Wouldn’t it be cool if people could understand you while you did those things?  Well, guess what, you’ve come to the right place! These signs will be discussing your family, clothes, the weather, the alphabet, numbers, food and more!  The Sign Language that will be taught in this class is “SEE” or Signed Exact English, which is where almost every word in English can be translated into a sign.  This class is geared more towards new students but will include a few new topics and signs.  For returning students please note that this will mostly be a review class but ALL students will focus a lot more on conversational and receptive skills with deaf culture and history incorporated.

(The reason for the homework scale being 4-5 is because students WILL need to practice their signs multiple times a week.  Therefore the scale is placed that high due to the need to practice, not the difficulty of the material).       

A note to returning students,

Please do not expect another class in which you will be learning 431 signs.  Since I will be mainly teaching what you learned last semester (with some new signs) I would expect to you to learn only about one-third of the amount of vocabulary that new students will be learning.  So what you can expect is far less to minimal vocab but a cementing of your already learned signs and making your conversational signs more proficient.  If you want to be have a higher vocab content you will simply need to contact me so that I know how to provide and I will be more than happy to do so!

 

This class is for grades 6-12.

Trig/Pre-Calc 8th-12th

Description:

This course will equip students for college calculus.  Lessons will emphasize functions, graphing, conic sections, polar graphs, complex numbers, matrix algebra, sequences and series, trigonometry, limits, and an introduction to calculus. 

The pre-requisite for this class is Algebra 2.  A number of the topics covered in this course were introduced in Algebra 2. 

We will be using the Bob Jones Precalculus , 1stedition book for this course.  I am choosing not to use Saxon Advanced Math for a number of reasons.  1) There is a lot of geometry at the beginning of the book that we won’t have time to cover.  2) There are additional algebra topics that need to be covered to be successful in calculus.  3)  Now is a good time to transition to a more traditional math text. 

Taking a CLEP test for College Algebra and Trigonometry would verify to a college that a student is prepared for calculus.  Passing a CLEP exam would also give students math credits at a number of universities. For some students, College Algebra will be the final math class a student needs, but for others, it is the launching point for their college math classes.

Syllabus

This class is for grades 8-12 and is a year-long class.
