5 years of teaching in International Schools using Common Core standards in the following subjects: - 7th grade Language Arts - 8th grade Language Arts - 9th grade World Literature - 10th grade Composition & Speech - 10th grade Creative Writing & Film Studies - 11th grade American Literature - 11th grade IB English Language A HL/SL - 12th grade British Literature - 12th grade IB English Language B HL/SL - 12th grade AP Literature and Composition
In general, I encourage student discovery beginning each unit with a specific outcome in mind and often with a broad unit question that we work towards as a class. Each unit begins with comprehension activities and builds up to creating, analyzing, and evaluating.
