Description

This course will help students to develop clearer and more comprehensive understandings of literary texts, as well as to forge a more rewarding relationship with reading in general. In a supportive group environment, students will explore a range of reading strategies, including textual analysis, background research, response and summary writing, and recitation. Then they will apply these tools to an in-depth study of two major works: Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre and George Orwell's 1984. Students will also pursue additional reading of their choice. Our overall goal is to become more resourceful, effective, and insightful readers.
