Students will need their own copy of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Students can purchase or borrow a copy or they can access a free copy on the Project Gutenberg website. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Because we are reading classic literature that was written in a very different time period, the likelihood of coming across something that would not be acceptable in today's literature is high. Many classic novels contain sexism, racism, or other issues that students may not be used to reading. Any time we are reading a novel that contains these issues, I will stop reading and discuss what is wrong about what we read and why we no longer accept that idea or language. Instead of censoring classic literature, I use it as a teaching tool to help students see how much has changed since it was written, as well as how far we still need to go.
