Description

Class Experience

I hold a Masters Degree in English and Literature with a specialty in Gothic Literature. I wrote my masters thesis over Edgar Allan Poe and his Feminine Ideal. I have experience teaching Gothic Literature in public school and online. Plus, I really love this material and study it for fun! 
There is a writing assignment in this class. The writing assignment will be assigned the 2nd class and be due the 7th class. The topics for the writing assignment will vary, but will most likely be an essay on a favorite horror book, film or both, or an essay on "What scares you."

55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will be mainly sticking with films of the classic horror era where there is little to no blood and gore on film. Literature will be from the 18th, 19th, and 20th century researching the origins of Gothic literature and horror. We will be seeing clips from some of the more modern horror films. These will include some jump scares etc. I will not put anything in this course that I would be embarrassed to read or watch in front of my 5 and 9 year old grandchildren or any ordained clergy! However, if your learner is prone to nightmares, this may not be the class for them! Caution is advised for learners sensitive to scary, horror based themes and images! PG - 13!
