Methodology



This course is taught primarily as a workshop.  The teacher occasionally introduces texts and activities designed for the entire class, such as reading and discussing a brief literary text from mythology or the Bible, or discussing strategies for studying and researching.  Because the course is designed to support students in a variety of English classes, however, students spend a significant amount of time working independently or in small groups on assignments designed to supplement their work in other courses. Each student completes a portfolio of writing assignments including reading journal entries, critical reflections on the student’s own writing, personal essays, and study logs.   This allows students to select assignments most relevant to what they are learning in their other English class in any given week.  The teacher works with individual students or small groups to facilitate completion of these assignments.  

Evaluation


Students are evaluated on their portfolio work and their class participation.  The teacher evaluates on assignments as they are placed in the portfolio; students are allowed to resubmit assignments after discussing them with the teacher in individual conferences.
