September's Book: Divergent October's Book: The Maze Runner November's Book: The Hunger Games December's Book: Red Queen
This is a class of great genre books that has a sneaky study skills aspect. Students will learn and practices the following important study skills: -Reading for content & thematic arcs -Summarizing & paraphrasing what they've read out loud in class -Comparing & contrasting characters and aspects of the novel with other novels they've read out loud in class -How to take reading notes, and annotate readings for greater reading retention (As someone who teaches college freshman I cannot emphasize enough how many students need these skills)
I have a background in analytic philosophy and rhetoric and a take a passionate interest in helping others look skeptically at issues surrounding the concepts of 'coolness' and 'popularity.' Because I experience college freshman lack the ability to focus on readings and how their attention span has eroded with the rise in social media, I am devoted to helping students learn better reading retention skills. Meanwhile, students think I'm cool--even though I'm just being myself.
The homework for this class will be reading pages for the next meeting.
Students must have pen and paper as well as copies of the book we're reading--whether e-book or paper. I will provide handouts about annotating readings.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no assessment - -there is only excited and thoughtful peer discussion.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
NOTE: The themes of this book are dystopian, and there is sometimes a romantic element.
