One of the best-loved American books of all time, 𝑳𝒊𝒕𝒕𝒍𝒆 𝑾𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒏 was masterfully written as a testament to the quiet strength and achievements of women in the 19th Century. But what was it like to be a female author in a time when women were not valued outside of domesticity? What are the themes Ms. Alcott wove through her story of four sisters growing up in Massachusetts at the time of the Civil War? How does a book like 𝑳𝒊𝒕𝒕𝒍𝒆 𝑾𝒐𝒎𝒆𝒏 remain popular over 150 years after its publication? In...
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 that 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.

What happens when a learner is given the time and space to soak in a story and allow it to change their life? “Aha!” moments are my goal, and it’s why I adore leading worthwhile discussions about classic books. What good is it if we require a teen...
