Stevenson's popular gothic classic dramatises the sense of divided personality that we all experience at times, as we struggle to take the right path through life. This novel therefore provides an excellent basis for discussion of topics that are relevant to us all. Over the course of ten weeks, students will receive a thorough grounding in all of the major themes and key characters of the novel. They will have many opportunities to discuss their ideas and to express them in writing. Written...
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: https://www.audible.co.uk/pd/The-Strange-Case-of-Dr-Jekyll-and-Mr-Hyde-Audiobook/B004EVW1MG (UK) https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Strange-Case-of-Dr-Jekyll-and-Mr-Hyde-Audiobook/B0036GMFI0 (US)
2 files available upon enrollmentAll 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.
