Students will be able to: - Read and Discuss Classic Literature during Socratic Seminars - Compare and Contrast Writing - Write Journal Entries Answering Novel Related Topics - Collaborate with Peers to Develop Written Answers - Develop a Final Writing Assignment Analyzing the Novel
I have taught many book studies in my professional career (including all of the novels listed above and more). I love taking part in discussions and ensuring that the students needs and interests are met as they read. I like to work with students to help me design and schedule the class! I also teach the course on Outschool WITHOUT essay writing for students who perhaps need more practice in verbal analysis and conversation as opposed to students who need practice in writing. This course is very popular and successful and the reviews can be read with that listing if you would like to see the success!
Homework OfferedReading will be required outside of class time to ensure appropriate discussions during class while some journal writings will be done both inside and outside of class. The same goes for the essay writing final assessment. If the assessment is not completed in class, students will complete it outside of class.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedStudents will complete a final written essay analyzing the novel while using the evidence that we discuss and create through the previous weeks in class.
Students will need to be able to purchase the novel or find access to one through online resources or libraries.
