Class Experience

I have a bachelor's degree in writing and journalism. I worked as a journalist for over five years and won several awards during my career. A large portion of my college years was spent studying creative and essay writing. I have self-published a few fiction books and I am currently working on another. I have taught in homeschool co-ops and taught my own children to read and write. Before changing my degree to writing, my study focus was on education. Several of the classes I took in college were on how to teach writing effectively.
Students will a copy of "The Odyssey," "Oedipus Rex," and "Hamlet." There are free versions online that I will post in the classroom, but they may be more difficult to read.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The classics in the class contain violence, some minor sexual references (including an incestual relationship), and darker themes. The stories may not be appropriate for students under the recommended age for the class.
