Included here is everything you need to teach a college level course on fiction and literary analysis using short stories and a novel: lecture notes, reading assignments, discussions, writing assignments, and novel project. I designed and used this packet for teaching English 102 online for a local university. Since most of my students were military and therefore many deployed, the course was designed for easy Internet access to text and research sources. I also have used this course as part of my AP Literature face-to-face class with high school seniors. The course is designed as an 8-week "semester" but is easily adaptable to a full-length semester for either high school or college. Fiction categories or units include setting, plot and structure, characters, writing style, etc. As an online course, students read Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½lectures,Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ read various short stories, discuss these with other students, and then write essays. They also read a novel of their choice from an extended list and complete a project on it. This course is easily adaptable for independent study as well.
