Description

Class Experience

1. A deeper understanding of British Literature
2. Help students to discuss the interaction of the book's meaning and summary
I am originally from Britain, and as a child, I went around many stately homes. My parents were both born in the 1930s, and my Mum's stories of WWII allowed me to see history in such a different way. I have taken many classes in history, and my love for literature has grown over the years, that I would love to share this love to allow students to see that history and literature can be fun to learn. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Anne of Green Gables series:
   We would look at the Anne of Green Gable series from a critical viewpoint since this series does include racism, racial slurs, stereotypes, cultural inaccuracies, harmful and inaccurate descriptions of Natives, stereotypical/racist imagery, and biased perspective which is not being promoted in this course. If racism or discrimination is brought up in class due to the book, I will address this by stating that racism or discrimination is not right because everyone has something to learn from each other, and we all have some amazing qualities about each other. Per all my classes, when a topic is brought up, I listen and address the student's concerns in a nonbiased manner, allowing each student to have an individual voice and to be heard. In this book, we see how students work past indigenous racism and become friends or work through it. We should all work together as a team: it doesn't matter your race or color; what matters is that we are learning together and learning from each other to grow the world in a better way.

Ballet Shoes:
    The book is about three orphans (Pauline, Petrova, and Posy) who were adopted but do not have much money. Boarders come to live at their house, and when given the opportunity to make more money through performing ballet, they take lessons to help their guardian (Sylvia Brown also called Garnie).

Carrie's War:
   The book is about World War 2, and the main characters are evacuees from London, England.

Pride and Prejudice:
     Topics that are mentioned in Pride and Prejudice are focused around romance:
-- gender roles (what women are supposed to do at that time and what Elizabeth wants to do instead)
-- marriage and potential of marriage (what makes someone compatible?)
-- being marriage respectably, bribed into marriage, just marrying to have someone, etc.

The Secret Garden:
    Mary's parents both die and she is sent to her uncle's estate. This book deals with death, grief, learning how to deal with anger in a positive way, and new beginnings. Racism is brought up in this book but will be addressed as to how unacceptable this is, and we will focus on the main story of Mary finding an enchanted garden and the healing that comes from the magic that is found in that garden.
