I teach using a discussion style, with a blend of asynchronous and synchronous teaching methods. Each week, students will meet with me, the teacher, at the weekly meeting time. Students will prepare for the meetings by completing assigned readings, journal activities, and other optional content (all optional content will be marked with the initials OPT). While optional, this content will assist students in their contextual and background knowledge of the story and will give them...
Students will be able to... 1. Describe how a story's plot unfolds in a series of episodes and how the characters respond or change as the plot moves toward a resolution, 2. Pose and respond to specific questions with elaboration and detail, 3. Make comments that contribute to the topic, text, or issue under discussion. Students will be able to use the reading skills and strategies taught in this club in their schoolwork. Students will also use their discussion skills and strategies to talk in-depth about their books, pose and answer questions, and lead discussions independently.
Students will be required to read up to three assigned chapters (approximately 15-20 pages, depending on the edition). They will have an entire week to complete the reading. Each week, short videos will be posted for background information on the chapters. These videos are optional but recommended in order for students to have as much information and context as possible to contribute to the weekly discussions. Students will be required to write in a weekly journal. This journal can either be in a paper format or an online/digital format. They may choose one out of three possible questions to answer in their journals. These responses should follow a specific format as posted on the classroom page. At the end of the course, students will have the opportunity to present a creative project of their choice (along with a tea party!).
1 file available upon enrollmentHandouts, videos, and/or slideshows will be provided by the teacher. Students should have the following materials at home: 1. Journal (paper or digital) 2. Writing materials 3. Book: "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." -This text can be purchased online in a paper or eBook form. Students are also encouraged to borrow from their local library. --Note: If your local library is closed or does not have a physical copy of the text, you can also borrow an eBook version on Libby (https://www.overdrive.com/apps/libby/). 4. Available creative materials for the end-of-club project.
While no formal grades will be used to assess students, each assignment will have a set of standards for students to reach in order to have a successful book club meeting. These standards will help students hone and improve their reading, speaking, and writing skills as practice for their formal schooling.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This text is traditionally taught in a Christian/religious context and has some allusions to Christian themes. This course WILL be taught from a LITERARY perspective, and will NOT be taught from a religious perspective. However, students may recognize these themes or reflections on their own. Should this occur, the students will be reminded to consider the literary aspects of the story, and will be encouraged to support their point of view using evidence from the text. Should the conversation move too far into a discussion or debate into religion, students will be gently reminded again and provided with alternate strategies in which to consider the book.
