I have taught this novel through private tutoring on Outschool, in the public classroom, and as a literary novel study through Outschool as well. You can find the class that I have taught this novel in along with the review for the class at the link below. This class is set up the same way as this Animal Farm Novel Study. Please let me know if you have any questions!

I love taking part in discussions and ensuring that the students' needs and interests are met as they read.
Students will be asked to read outside of class so that they are able to participate in the discussion during class time. No other outside homework will be required, but I am happy to provide homework for either of the options below:
1. Essay Writing
2. Paragraph Writing for Each Chapter
3. Annotation Guides for Analysis
Students will be asked to purchase the novel in some format. Here are a list of links to the versions of the novel that I suggest for their price and readability! Amazon: Barnes and Noble: Audible:
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
