During this semester class, we will use the Socratic-style to discuss the following three books: Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë Frankenstein by Mary Shelley Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë This is a Socratic-style class. Each student will be encouraged to voice their opinions while using evidence from the text. I do ask that cameras be on during class. This helps to create a friendly and engaging atmosphere. If you prefer that your learner's camera be off during class, please let me know....

Learners should have a copy of each of the books. Frankenstein should be the 1818 edition. I use the Bantam classic.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
These books include mature content.
