Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will become familiar with Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, learn to identify its theme and motifs, and be able to draw educated conclusions from our rhetorical discussions.
I re-read To Kill a Mockingbird as an adult on a whim and I couldn't believe how much I once again adored this book. Now the book remains at the top of my all-time favorites list, and I'd love to share it with you in a way that makes you come to love the brilliance of the story and its author.  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 To Kill a Mockingbird will be required. I recommend the Harper Perennial 2002 edition.
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.
The story-line includes an allegation of rape, and although it is not presented in a gratuitous way, it is not avoidable. To Kill a Mockingbird is considered a "Southern Gothic", and it includes some elements of the supernatural, or at least some childish perceptions of the supernatural, and can be spooky for some readers.
