Join us as we discuss and analyze the four book series of the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. We will explore a post apocalyptic world where order and structure was created to provide for a more peaceful world. With order came power and with power came greed. We will follow the lives of Tris and Four as they team up with fellow citizens and friends to fight for justice, freedom, family, and most importantly... the truth. During this 4-week course we will gain a deeper understanding of each...
I have been fostering a love of reading since I could read. I love discussing different novels, genres, and diving further into a book than just reading what is on the surface. I find that once analyzing the different themes and symbolism within a novel it helps us understand the characters and story line on a much deeper level. I have led small book clubs for over 5 years with children between the ages of 10-18 and have a passion for reading as well as a Bachelor's degree in English where I focused on literature and creative writing. I have also been an active member of many diverse book clubs as well, both a participant and a leader.
Students will need to read the designated book before class to be prepared for the class discussions. We will be reading one book every week for 4 weeks.
Students will need to bring a copy of the book of the week with them to class (e-books are also acceptable copies to bring). - Week 1: Divergent by Veronica Roth - Week 2: Insurgent by Veronica Roth - Week 3: Allegiant by Veronica Roth - Week 4: Four by Veronica Roth
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
As this series falls into the dystopian and sci-fi genres there are some scenes where riots occur. No explicit descriptions are provided in the novels. The riots set the scene for the climax of the series and provide a more intense story line. The books would be described as PG-13 if compared to movies. The book series is similar to the Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer, the Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, or The Selection Series by Kiera Cass.
The following books will need to be read prior to each class: - Week 1: Divergent by Veronica Roth - Week 2: Insurgent by Veronica Roth - Week 3: Allegiant by Veronica Roth - Week 4: Four by Veronica Roth
