Class Experience

Students will learn to analyze a book in a different manner - comparing themes, debating aloud or in writing about the relationships between happiness, justice, political freedom, equality, dystopia, utopia, etc. The overall goal will be to have a better understanding of this particular book, and learn how to discuss literature in a way that prepares them for higher grade level classes. 
Reading Breakdown:
Before the first class- read the introduction and up to chapter 7
Before week 2 - read chapters 7-17
Before week 3 - read chapters 17 through the end
Week 4 - writing assignments and/or group projects - during and outside of class time
Week 5 - discussion of assignments and projects - class wrap-up
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be assessed on class participation, preparedness, short writing assignments, and overall enthusiasm! 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
