Course Description

The students will choose a book, and then read a portion of the book every week. During class, we will go over various aspects of what has been read. This will include character analysis, plot development, vocabulary, inflection points of significant impact, and relation to the events and people in our lives. We will also read a few select paragraphs in class as a group.

Course Outcomes

Depending on the book chosen, the outcomes would vary slightly. But each book has a rich vocabulary bank, moral lessons about society, and in – depth characters. By meeting together and discussing each portion as a group, I hope to enhance the skills of critical analysis and thinking from different points of view.

Book for this session: Treasure Island

Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of pirates, treasure, and daring deeds on the high seas

Jim Hawkins, son of an English innkeeper, finds a map promising buried treasure and feels the call of adventure. Enticed by the promise of untold wealth, Jim goes to sea as a cabin boy. The Hispaniola and its crew, under the leadership of Long John Silver, sail the Spanish Main seeking hidden riches. But the voyage is far from tranquil, and before the ship drops anchor, a mutiny plot is discovered.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s timeless yarn takes readers on a perilous journey to an island far from home. This world, populated by peg-legged pirates, swashbuckling sailors, and pet parrots is as thrilling now as it was over a century ago.
