Jane Austen's "Emma" is arguably her finest novel, and such a perfect one at that for a book club and a reader's theatre course! It is a blend of serious writing, witty charm, with an unforgettable heroine, Emma. Yes, Emma, who cluelessly imagines herself without fault, spending most of her time matchmaking and causing quite a stir in the social circles of Highbury, England! Needless to say, we will have oodles of fun in this course discussing an array of wonderful characters amidst all of...
Learning Goals: -read a literary classic and build an appreciation of good literature -take an active, respectful part in discussions -recognize satire, wit, and sarcasm -tackle tricky vocabulary by looking for clues in the passage -practice reading aloud certain sections with expression and fluency -relate and respond personally to the text, and discover what the themes of the novel teach us about ourselves -learn about the novel’s distinctive setting in Victorian England and expand basic geography knowledge -enjoy a bond with fellow readers
I am a certified teacher and have over 26 years of experience of teaching in Canadian classrooms. My major in university was English where I studied and fell in love with the works of Jane Austen! In 2014, I visited Bath, England, where the author lived and wrote several novels. It was a thrill of a lifetime!!
Reading of the novel will be done primarily as homework before each meeting. (If the text is too hard, learners may feel free to listen to a free audio version of the novel for better enjoyment and understanding.)
Assessment will be ongoing throughout each class. As we discuss the book I will be asking various questions which will determine learner comprehension and engagement. Adjustments and communication will be made when needed to ensure each learner is reaching the above learning goals.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The setting of the novel is in the 19th century. Roles and opportunities for girls are very traditional and limited. This will provide an opportunity for discussion of how the world is different or the same today. An emphasis will be placed on encouraging learners in this class to follow their dreams, nurture their talents, reach their potential, and not be hindered or negatively influenced by the stereotypes that females in the novel faced.
