Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will become familiar with Alcott's Little Women, learn to identify its theme and motifs, and be able to draw educated conclusions from our rhetorical discussions.
Growing up without sisters, Little Women had instant appeal to me because I so envied the relationships of the March sisters. Their story of maturing and becoming such unique women moved me deeply, both because of its compelling personal narrative and because Ms. Alcott was such a masterful storyteller. As an author myself, I particularly enjoy studying the works and perspectives of other female authors.
Weekly reading, an essay, creative projects, and dramatic reading prep. I give a lot of space for learning disabilities and non-neurotypical learners (I have a few in my own home!), so if you're hesitant about the class format, please reach out to me.
A copy of Little Women will be required. There are several free online versions which I encourage you to use, but if you want a hard copy (great for underlining and making your own notes as we read), I suggest The Sterling Unabridged, The Annotated Little Women, or the Oxford World's Classics. As long as your copy is unabridged, you're good to go!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
All essays are read and returned to learners with notes, helpful suggestions, and plenty of encouragement.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
