I have spent 6 years as a professional teacher and professor of English. I have an MA in English Education. An avid reader and self-directed learner, historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres. 

Reading such books has lead me to research and discover where the boundaries of truth and fiction lay. In looking at the past, we can see how society and their ideas have developed and shaped modern times. In studying historical fiction novels, you can see where our modern ideals shape how we choose to look at the past and in a greater part speak to our current societal issues.
A list of possible assignments will be given. Students will be given the option to pursue whichever assignments they like. The only assignment that is truly expected of them is to read the chapters before each class (1-3 chapters as seen above). Those who have already read the book are encouraged to re-read the passages to refresh their minds on what happened. 

Completing assignments will give them achievements and xp (experience points) that will build their reading comprehension skills and also help them to level up in their quest to be all powerful!
'Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Titan's Curse' by Rick Riordan.

All additional materials will be made available and posted in the classroom. I use google software (docs, slides, forms, etc.) as they are free and easy to access.
Students will be assessed using XP or experience points. As their XP grows, they will level up. Levels will be posted openly in the classroom while individual students XP will be given via request. Individual assignments will be corrected, but the emphasis will be placed on effort in reading, writing and the ability to convey information rather than perfection. 

At the end of class, students will receive a certificate and a print out for a custom (Huntress) paper bead in keeping with the storyline.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
We will be studying ancient mythology alongside the reading. Ancient art (particularly Greek and Roman) often showed nudity and sometimes graphic scenes. I will not draw attention to and try to avoid use of particularly graphic imagery. 
Students will need a physical copy of 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Titan's Curse' by Rick Riordan.

Paper and pencil or pen would also be useful to have for note taking, but is not mandatory.
