Description

Class Experience

At the end of the course, the student will be able to:

-Describe major characters and plot developments
-Analyze the text for figurative language (ie. Symbolism, flashback, conflict, mood, tone, etc.)
-Explain major themes
-Verbally articulate their opinions of the novel

I have been working in the Special Education/English field for 15 years.  I have specialized in supporting struggling students’ reading, writing, and language development in the high school setting (grades 9-12).  My teaching experience has included multiple grade levels, a wide variety of student abilities, and many different teaching settings and styles.  Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors!  I enjoy reading and discussing her mysteries!  And Then There Were None is a suspenseful novel that keeps the reader guessing! 
Homework:  At the end of the first session, I will assign reading assignments for the remainder of the course.  The reading load will be broken up into chunks (see below).  I will provide a syllabus on the first day that outlines the specific chapters to be read for each class.  Students will be responsible for reading the assigned pages and reviewing the discussion questions prior to the next class.  Doing so will allow students to actively participate in the class discussion. 

Read Chapters 1 & 2 & Guided Reading questions
Read chapters 3 & 4 & Guided Reading questions
Read chapters 5 & 6 & Guided Reading questions
Read chapters 7 & 8 & Guided Reading questions
Read chapters 9 & 10 & Guided Reading questions
Read chapters 11 & 12 & Guided Reading questions
Read chapters 13 & 14 & Guided Reading questions
Read chapters 15 & 16 & Guided Reading questions
Epilogue & Letter & Guided Reading questions
Final project (Book review, etc --various options will be provided for a project.) 
**These assignments may change due to student need/progress**
Students need a copy of the book: And Then There Were None
I personally use the following:  
Title:  And Then There Were None
Author:  Agatha Christie
ISBN: 0-312-97947-9

There are also audio versions.  If the student chooses an audio version, I would highly recommend that they are taking notes while listening (characters, time stamps, etc).  

I will also post weekly discussion questions.  Students may choose to write down their answers in a notebook or type them.  I will not collect them; they are for student reference only and guide discussion.  Therefore, the student may need a notebook/paper to take notes. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment:  The culminating assignment will be a creative book project of the student's choosing.  Students will also receive a daily informal participation grade based on their class preparation and participation in the discussion throughout the class.   
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
A murderer uses a nursery rhyme as a framework to plan and execute the visitors' deaths, one by one, in various ways.
