Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will become knowledgeable about not only the author Jane Austen and three of her important works, but they will also gain a greater understanding of her social commentary and the changes she believed were necessary in the lives of women and society as a whole. The course is perfect for those new to Austen's writing as well as for those who want to reread her novels with a fresh eye.
As graduate-level work, Jane Austen's works were a focus for me at Oxford University. These books remain at the top of my all-time favorites list, and I've been known to hide in my bedroom closet with my well-worn copy of Pride and Prejudice and a chocolate bar . . . just one more chapter!  As an author myself, I particularly enjoy studying the works and perspectives of other female authors. 
There will be some in-class reading, but students will need to be able to read each novel in its allotted time of three weeks. Listening to an audiobook version is absolutely acceptable! The projects I provide are optional, so it's up to the student or to those in charge of a student's education to decide whether or not to engage in activities such as letter writing, music exploration, and art.
Students will need a copy of Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, and Emma.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
All essays are read and returned to learners with notes, helpful suggestions, and plenty of encouragement. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
I will be providing plenty of links to primary source material, or what I like to call fodder for lots and lots of student-led rabbit trails.

About Me

What happens when a learner is given the time and space to soak in a story and allow it to change their life? “Aha!” moments are my goal, and it’s why I adore leading worthwhile discussions about classic books. What good is it if we require a teen...
