Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Character Analysis- students will learn how to analyze literary characters to gain a deeper understanding of their purpose and meaning to the story. Optional for students who wish to receive a grade in the class.
Literary Elements- students will learn how to identify the use of various literary devices by an author and how they are used to enrich a story.
Vocabulary Study- students will learn new vocabulary words each week that are taken from the story.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and a Minor in English Literature from the University of California at San Diego. 
For the past 20 years I have been teaching children both as a homeschool teacher and in local co-op classes. I have also been teaching children online for the past 2.5 years with VIPKid and on Outschool.
As we discuss sensitive topics and issues, we will analyze the historical context in which novels were written, the author's background and worldview, and the story's time period. Discussion is focused on what the characters believe, what the author believed, and what beliefs were central to the literary time period. Students' various ideas and opinions are always respected.
Students will be assigned chapters to read independently every week in between sessions. They will be expected to come to class prepared to discuss the assigned chapters.
Any edition is fine. Students must have a copy of the book to read independently.
Students who wish to receive a letter grade for this class should submit the assigned character analysis and project for the class.
Letter Grade will be determined by the following:
Class Participation- 20%- Ongoing
Vocabulary- 20%- 5 words Weekly, shared during class
Character Analysis- 40%
Project- 20%
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This book includes some mature content including a few mild sexual references to promiscuity. The story is set in a bleak and disturbing dystopian society that practices human cloning. Written by the renowned British author of Remains of the Day.
Study questions provided by teacher weekly before class.
