Description

Class Experience

- read and gain an understanding of some of the most important British literature of the 19th century
- develop an understanding of 19th-century British culture and pervading concerns
- hone critical reading and analysis skills
I have a Ph.D. in English literature from the University of Texas and a B.A. From the University of Texas. I have taught dual credit and early college credit courses for Austin Community College. I have also taught lower-division and upper-division courses for the University of Texas.
Students will need to complete independent reading outside of class, averaging about 75-100 pages per week. 
I will provide a sample reading schedule to help students with this. The key is daily reading between 10 and 15 pages. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Optional essays: students may write one or two essays during the class if they would like. 

Students will receive informal assessments for the class, but I am happy to provide a written report and can provide recommendations upon request. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Some of the texts do address violence, including domestic violence. These topics will be handled with trigger warnings and sensitivity. Parents are invited to review https://www.commonsensemedia.org for information on the novels that will be discussed. 
The class will use GoogleDocs and Youtube. Students do not need an account for either.
I will use GoogleDocs for class notes and I will share the document with students using a link that is accessible by anyone who has it.
Youtube videos will be short clips from resources relevant to the 19th century, including important scenes from several of the novels.
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Middlemarch by George Eliot
Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy

I will also recommend articles and websites to help students engage with the texts.
