I have taught many book studies in my professional career. I am currently running multiple novel studies on Outschool that have been met with great success and interest. I love taking part in discussions and ensuring that the students' needs and interests are met as they read. We will cover many literary devices throughout our discussions by developing a literary journal documenting our understanding of the text. There will also be an option to write an essay at the end which I am happy to provide feedback or to tutor students on.
Since this is a reading and discussion class, students will need to complete the reading outside of class time. But during class, students will work together to complete a literary device journal. This will be shared and uploaded into the classroom together each week for students to reference.
Students will need a copy of the novel. Listed below are the versions of the novel that I recommend! Amazon: Barnes and Noble: Audible: Sparknotes Free Online PDF: - This free PDF is available because the copyright on the original text is from 1886 and is now available due to copyright timelines.
An optional essay will be available for students at the end of the course which builds off of the work (analysis, journal, and discussion) we completed in class. 
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
