My name is Amber Couch. I have been working in education for almost two decades as a homeschool English teacher, a middle and high school librarian, and an elementary teacher. I am a graduate of Nevada State College with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education and a Masters of Science in Library Science from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. 
​
The best part of my job is helping students find their next favorite book. It brings me great joy to talk about books with kids, teachers, or parents. I can talk magic schools, dragons, space odysseys, love triangles, and tragic teenage angst all day. All my English lessons start with a novel, and are supported with articles, websites, virtual field trips, and cross-curricular units that delve into history, science, anthropology, and even astronomy.
Students will be expected to watch the video at the beginning of each week that gives the tips and insight for that week’s reading. They will read the plays on their own and complete the Google Slides each week. Each week there will be a conversation starter in the classroom to interact with the other students. This should take an estimated 2-4 hours each week.
My favorite version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is from The Folger Shakespeare Library. It is available for FREE, or you can purchase a copy, at this link: https://www.folger.edu/hamlet All other materials will be provided by the teacher.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s comedies and romances. Some of the humor can be slightly suggestive. For example, one of the characters is named “Bottom” and a faery turns him into a donkey. He is sometimes referred to by a name that can mean both donkey OR bottom. Two sets of couples have run off to the woods to get married, and this same faery makes them fall in love with the other person as a trick. Again, this causes some confusion and funny, yet suggestive, situations. Nothing ever becomes inappropriate for the age level intended for this class.
