We had a wonderful final class for our British Literature class. We finished our last reading selection, The 39 Steps by John Buchan. While the book is full of implausibilities, the action of the plot made it a fun read. The discussion questions that the students brought not only had us talking about the book but about all of our literature selections this semester. We rated their our reading selections. All of the students agreed that Beowulf was the least favorite book and Great Expectations and Pygmalion were the more favored books.
We only took about a third of our class time to discuss the book because I had planned a final exam. It was a Jeopardy game and the class divided themselves into two teams.. (You can go here and play it for yourselves.) The students did well!
My goal is to have grades out by the end of the weekend.. I have to say that this is one of my favorite classes to teach.
