Prepare for adventure!

We’re going to take a deep dive into one of the most well-read pieces of literature written. We’re going to learn about what makes an excellent piece of literature, discover how language is used for great effect, and discuss why we like and dislike certain characters.

Lesson 1: What’s a fairy tale?

In this lesson, we’re going to discuss the life of the author, C.S. Lewis, and learn about the importance of his works. Then, we’re going to learn about what dedication within a novel means, and analyse a passage from the beginning of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe through the lens of a novel.

Lesson 2: Character personalities

We’re going to discuss some of the characters in the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and learn about their personalities. Then, we’re going to read some passages together to find evidence for what we think about character personalities.

Lesson 3: Peace and War

We’re going to develop an understanding for the war-time setting of the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and discover how settings can influence the atmosphere of text. Then, we’re going to develop awareness for how language contributes to story settings.

Lesson 4: All about themes

We’re going to learn about what a theme is, and how settings within stories can influence them. Then, we’re going to look for examples of various themes within the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Finally, we’re going to discuss and identify the similarities between the themes within a poem, and the novel.

Our only regret is hearing about you so late! Max has made so much progress at school; his teachers even asked me whether he was getting additional help because of the drastic change! Thank you, One School!
