An essential part of high school English is the study of classic and other notable novels. These works of literature may be notable for the longevity of their influence, exceptional quality, contribution to culture, or typical of an era, people, or movement. In this ongoing class, we will work our way through notable novels, and I will give learners essential questions to answer as they read. We will then come together for discussion. The idea is to read broadly, deeply, and regularly while...
Mrs. Lemons has a B.A. in English/Literature and an M.Ed in Education Administration. She has a teaching and principal's license and is endorsed to teach English and History. She has many years of experience teaching in public and private schools at every level, including undergraduate and graduate students at Colorado Christian University seeking their teaching licenses. She is a teacher of teachers. As we approach sensitive topics and issues, I fall back on my English literature education degree, teacher training, and years of English teaching experience. We 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 literary periods of time, such as the romantics or even the dark romantics. Students' various ideas and opinions are respected.
Students will do all of the reading outside of class. This will require 20-30 minutes of reading each day.
Please look at the schedule of novels in the listing. Students will need to borrow or buy each book.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Upon request, I can provide you with an English / Literature grade based upon participation in the discussion and a written response to the literature in a paragraph answering the essential question. If you need a grade for more formal essay writing, I can provide that if students add on "Essay Writing 911." Just reach out with your request.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Many high school novels have mature themes, such as murder, violence, suicide, revenge, licentiousness, alcohol, death, prejudices, racism, guilt, betrayal, etc., and are intended for mature secondary students. The literature we do read is classic and is commonly read in high schools. The novels help students understand the world in which they live as they ponder deep questions that are as relevant now as they were then. Through experience, training, sensitivity, and compassion, I choose quality literature that helps students understand themselves and the world in which they live a little better as they consider various cultures, perspectives, and ideas. Sensitive material and themes are handled with respect for the humanity and dignity of all individuals. Historical context is important and the way ideas change over time can be considered. A particular religion or a belief system is neither favored nor advanced by me as I strive for neutrality; however, students are freely allowed to share their own opinions and worldviews. And they will be respected. It is my job to get students thinking, not to indoctrinate. Parents are welcome to listen in to class or to watch the recording, which I automatically post. I encourage students to talk to their parents about the literature and the issues we discuss. Novels are written with a Lexile score between 700-1400. Parents are welcome to listen in to class or to watch the recording, which I automatically post. I encourage students to talk to their parents about the novels and the issues we discuss.
