Description

Class Experience

Students will gain a thorough understanding of the novel and develop confidence in writing about it using academic language.
I have three university degrees in literature - that's why I get to call myself 'Doctor' Radice. I've also taught literature for more than thirteen years in schools, to classes ranging from age nine to eighteen.
Students will have reading homework between classes, as follows:

By lesson 1: read Chapter One
By lesson 2: read Chapter Two
By lesson 3: read Chapter Three
By lesson 4: read Chapter Four
By lesson 5: read Chapter Five
By lesson 6: read Chapter Six
By lesson 7: read Chapter Seven
By lesson 8: read Chapter Eight
By lesson 9: read Chapter Nine
By lesson 10: read Chapter Ten

The reading can be done with the aid of an audiobook if students wish. I recommend the unabridged Blackstone Audio recording by Martin Jarvis:

 2 files available upon enrollment
All materials are provided as part of the enrollment fee, including a study guide with quiz questions and a textbook which includes writing exercises. In order to do the reading homework, students can access the text of the novel for free online. For example, it can be found here: https://www.gutenberg.org/files/43/43-h/43-h.htm Parents may nevertheless wish to purchase a hard copy if they prefer. If they do so, they may purchase any edition. Other than that, students simply need paper and pen or pencil.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment of work will take place during the class. Students may also submit their written work at the end of each class if they wish to receive further feedback on how to improve it.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There are two violent scenes in the novel, which some younger readers may find disturbing. The first is when Edward Hyde tramples on a young girl in Chapter One. The second is when Edward Hyde murders Sir Danvers Carew in Chapter Four. Any other violence is only referred to rather than described.
Students can access the text of the novel for free online. For example, it can be found here:
