Description

Class Experience

I have three university degrees in literature - that's why I get to call myself 'Doctor' Radice. I've also taught literature for more than thirteen years in schools, to classes ranging from age nine to eighteen.
Chapters are set for reading between classes, and before the first class. Students can do this either by reading on their own, by listening to a parent read the novel, or by listening to an audiobook. I recommend the unabridged audiobook read by Lynn Redgrave, which you can find on Audible here:

https://www.audible.com/pd/Prince-Caspian-Audiobook/B002V8OEW4 (USA)

The homework reading schedule is as follows:

Pre-course reading (before the first class): Chapters One to Three.
Before the second class: Chapters Three to Five.
Before the third class: Chapters Six to Nine.
Before the fourth class: Chapters Ten and Eleven.
Before the fifth class: Chapters Twelve and Thirteen.
Before the sixth class: Chapters Fourteen and Fifteen.

Students are provided with a guide to the text, which includes extracts, writing activities and quiz questions. They should also purchase a copy of the text itself for their reading homework. Other than this, they only need pen and paper.
Students will have the option of submitting written work if they wish to receive feedback. Informal oral assessment will also take place in class.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There are some violent scenes in the novel. There is a scene where Lucy is almost killed by a bear. There is battle scene at the end. However, there is no gory detail, as the novel is intended for younger readers.

Note that, as with most classic literature, this text has a religious dimension, which needs to be explained as cultural context for the novel to be understood properly, just as it would be if one were studying Dickens or Shakespeare.
