A Year With the Lion: A Study of the Complete Chronicles of Narnia

Join me for a magical year of adventure as we read and discuss all seven of the Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis. We will read a book/month, beginning with "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe", and discuss characters, plot, themes, and more.

Students will be expected to read (or listen via audiobook) each book, using a study guide to prepare for class discussion. There may be occasional worksheets to complete outside of class to reinforce vocabulary or other literary elements.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Learners are expected to have access to their own copies of each book from The Chronicles of Narnia. These can be in print, digital, or audio format.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
There will be no external sites accessed by students in this class. All visual presentations, such as powerpoint slides, will be provided by the teacher via standard screen-share.

The overarching theme of the Narnia stories is the triumph of good over evil and the importance of friendship and sacrifice. There is hopefulness throughout, but dark elements do exist. The various stories may contains elements of deception and misuse of power. There are occasional descriptions of battle scenes, death, and menacing creatures. Parents are encouraged to verify that the books are suitable for their learners. I welcome any messages with questions or concerns. 

NOTE: In accordance with Outschool policy, we will not be specifically examining any biblical allusions or allegories found in the work, outside of a general acknowledgement that Lewis' personal faith often informed his writing. This will be noted as a point of literary interest rather than an examination of the theology behind the allusions.
