The Hobbit

Description: In The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien tells the story of Mr. Bilbo Baggins and his unexpected and rather uncomfortable adventure over the edge of the Wild. Rousted from a comfortable life in his hobbit hole by the wizard Gandalf, Bilbo joins a company of dwarves as they seek to reclaim their home far away in the Lonely Mountain. Along the journey, Bilbo has one adventure after another and meets many extraordinary creatures including goblins, trolls, elves, wargs, giant eagles, and even the fearsome dragon, Smaug.

In this 6 week course, students will have the opportunity to study this penetrating novel. With the aid of the study guide, students will improve their active reading skills through an observation and discussion of the storylines and vocabulary in the individual stories. The guide will help students to check their comprehension of the readings through key questions and composition activities. No credit will be awarded for this class.
