Three Young Adult Dystopian Novels
Description
This class will dissect three young adult dystopian novels: Hunger Games, Matched, and Divergent. We will spend 50 minutes discussing each book. We will explore the characters motivations, lives and experiences, values and prospects. We will discuss the dystopian world were they live and political issues that are faced in the book. Relationships between characters will be reviewed as well as development and growth within the characters. The last 5 minutes will allow time to talk about the next reading assignment and homework.

The objectives of the lesson are to identify key parts of the story, analyze the content in depth and engage in a meaningful discussion of the content while discussing ethics. This is a highly discussion-driven class so students should have finished the assigned reading before attending class. There will be some written assignments both creative and critical.

**Class can count towards any high school ELA requirements.

Teacher
I have a Masters of Education and am a licensed math and English teacher. **I have been teaching online for five years!** I love the exploration of math and plan to explore it in all of my classes.

My term long classes (broken into two terms affordability) will include plenty of exploration but will also be courses that will allow students to understand and practice concepts. As far as core classes go I teach middle school math (6th, 7th, and 8th/pre-algebra), Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra 2, Precalculus. I have taught these in a brick and mortar school in the USA and international schools in Thailand and China.

I have taught ages 11 to 18 in a traditional classroom.

Feel free to request classes. I teach both integrated math as well as algebra, geometry, trignometry and statistics. Also, creative writing for fiction and nonfiction and young adult dystopian English classes.
