This classic allegorical and dystopian novel was first published in 1945. George Orwell’s book reflects the events leading up to the Russian Revolution. The animals on Mr. Jones’ farm are tired being oppressed. Old Major, a boar on the farm, begins to hold meetings in an effort to establish their own society. First, they must prepare to revolt against the farmer. The plot thickens as the animals unite.
This course will not include our regular literature curriculum. The emphasis is on building comprehension skills and having shared discussions. Therefore, students will receive the book and instructions prior to the first class, so they may begin reading assigned chapters and come to the first class ready to discuss the story.
Outside Classwork: Students read assigned chapters and complete light assignments designed to help them come to class prepared to discuss the book in a meaningful way.
