Emma is, perhaps, one of Jane Austen's least popular heroines. She is vain and shallow and affects the plot by making mistakes at every turn. But what if it isn't entirely her fault? In this course, we'll explore "Emma" with a feminist approach. We'll gain cultural context by studying the Regency Era and the roles of women at the time, then apply that knowledge to a character analysis of Emma herself. At the end of the course, learners will have a fully developed persuasive writing piece...
Learners will be able to chart the progress of a character over time. Learners will be able to identify character traits, including flaws. Learners will be able to write a cohesive persuasive essay. Learners will be able to use textual evidence to support their claims.
I graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in English teaching. I have been teaching online or in a classroom for many years. I love working with learners to improve reading comprehension and draw meaning from texts. Jane Austen novels are some of my favorite books and I have read "Emma" many times!
Learners will be expected to read the assigned chapters before the start of class each week. This will be around 7 chapters every week, or one chapter a day. We will do as much of our writing work in class as possible, but learners may need to spend some time outside of class finishing and refining their writing.
Learners will need a copy of "Emma," whether this is a hard copy, an ebook, or an audiobook. They will also need a way to view Nearpod, typically a second device such as a phone or tablet.
Learners will be assessed based on their participation in class discussion and completion of writing assignments throughout the class. This will be reported to learners through informal feedback. Letter grades are available if requested at least 24 hours before the start of our first class.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
