Course Description:

We will read an average of 3 to 4 books in a 12 week period, the final books decided on will be up to the learners in the section.

In the first class we will be going over the possible classic books to choose from (what a classic is and discuss each story). My objective will be to create an interest and love of reading before we even start.

At the end of the first class we will vote on which books to read together (taking in to account any books the learners present might have already read so we don’t repeat on anyone – unless requested).

Books I will recommend include:
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The, by Mark Twain
Count of Monte Cristo, The, by Alexandre Dumas
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Shogun by James Clavell
Three Musketeers, The by Alexandre Dumas
**If a learners has an additional book they want to read, we will discuss it.**

Before we start each book we will discuss the important aspects of the book, anything historic they should know about and any concepts they should be aware of.

It will generally take about 3-6 weeks to complete the book (depending on the size of the book, I will let the learners know how long we will take once we decide on the book and set weekly reading targets).

Each week we will discuss what we have read, I will have questions to ask but generally I prefer to let the learners run the discussion. If movies have been made of the books, we may review scenes from the sections we just read and discuss those as well.
