. ▬▬▬▬▬▬ COURSE SUMMARY ▬▬▬▬▬▬ In this course, we will critically examine the literature of Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling's incorporation of astronomy, astrology, and Greek mythology.

I am a certified science teacher in the state of Arizona, with more than a decade of experience teaching children. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Earth and Space Science. My classes are offered in a lecture format, so your child can participate to his or her comfort level.
For the extension activities, you may want to print out the worksheets. For lecture 3 and 4, you will be asked to construct your own star wheel - this requires a printer, two sheets of cardstock (although regular paper will work okay), scissors, and staples or tape.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
While I do make sure to encourage students to respect all persons' belief systems, if you or your child are believers in the reliability of fortune telling or horoscopes, this is not the right class for you. The first two weeks talk very heavily about how astrology is not supported by any known scientific evidence, and instead emerged from the religious beliefs of the Greeks and the Romans. Students are encouraged to hone their ability to recognize the difference between science and belief (while acknowledging that ALL of us utilize both practices in our lives, and both are considered to be acceptable and respectable in our culture).
