Persuasion

The novel by Jane Austen.
Will be the first that I teach in my summer class.
here I will start a collection of links and ideas to help prepare for teaching the book.

List of occurrences of the word �persuasion�:

it would be good to tell the students to underline each occurence as they find it; as this will help them keep track of the word’s meaning. and Austen’s thematic usage.

Should we watch the movie or part of the movie in class? Certainly I should let the students know I am aware of it and that watching the film will not be a substitute for reading the book.

Maybe I should put it on loan in the library and have them watch it in their spare time?

(Do I have a copy of the film?)

Penguin has an interesting teacher’s guide with overview of the book. Might have some good stuff in it: http://www.penguinputnam.com/static/pdf/teachersguides/persuasion.pdf
