Description

Class Experience

This class is intended to not only teach about the fascinating folklore of these creatures, but is also intended to begin a student’s experience in thinking critically about the context of their stories. By looking at these stories and how they change over time, students can begin to think about how our perceptions of things alter.  

This class is also useful for those interested in creative writing, particularly on building themes that resonate with fantasy or horror stories and understanding supernatural elements and how they interact with a fictional setting. 
I’m a published author and screenwriter with a BA in Performing Arts (with a minor in Filmmaking), a passion for history and folklore, and werewolves have been my favorite monster since I was a kid (don’t tell Frankenstein, he’s sensitive). 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Content Warning: This class features descriptions of violence as committed by beings throughout history, including depictions of warfare, animal on human violence, human on animal violence, and some discussion of cannibalism. We will not discuss any of this material in-depth, but it is impossible to discuss this history without referencing these elements.
