Class Experience

I am an experienced literature teacher, and I have taught several dystopian novels, including classics like “Brave New World” and newer dystopian fiction like “The Hunger Games” series. 
Learners will read the assigned chapters each week to prepare for the discussion.
Students will need a copy of "The Maze Runner." All other information, including external links, will be provided during class, on the Classroom page, or via Google Docs.

50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
The novel includes fictional language and violent scenes that some readers may find uncomfortable.
