Ms. Carol has been a voracious reader since childhood. Her lifelong passion is to cultivate curiosity in children, and to inspire a lifelong love of learning, especially the reading and enjoyment of beautiful literature! 

It is not my style to glorify the scary or darker aspects of any story. I prefer to focus on, and to keep our class discussions focused on the positive life lessons. We do, however, briefly and tactfully touch on the darker topics, such as deaths of characters, and the struggle to overcome evil, as well.  I make every attempt to model and teach critical thinking, regardless of what book we are reading.

Ms. Carol has a PhD in pedagogy and history, with a Master’s in Cultural Studies. One of my  core values is to teach children to think critically, and to apply that to everything they read. Racism or racial stereotypes is never acceptable to me, even in a fictional, magical world.

Students will need a copy of the book Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling. The book must be read or listened to BEFORE class. Students can use their own books, library books, ebooks, or even listen to the audio books. If listening to the audiobooks, it is highly recommended that student reads independently to develop their own reading comprehension and competency.
This series is a well known, well loved children's book series about a make believe magic world. The books in this series start out lighthearted and the adventures are rather tame ones, but they do grow darker as the series progresses. The good guys vs bad guys struggle is a very real aspect of the series, and the bad guys are very bad indeed. It is not my style to glorify the scary or darker aspects of any story. I prefer to focus on, and to keep our class discussions focused on the positive life lessons. We do, however, briefly touch on the darker topics, such as deaths of characters, and the struggle to overcome evil, as well. 

 The stories absolutely do contain a host of positive life lessons. True friendship, the courage, a strong desire to help others, and the age old struggle for good to triumph over evil… these are real life lessons applicable to our everyday non-magical world! I HIGHLY recommend parents read the series book beforehand or alongside of their child. Only you know if this series is appropriate for your child!
