Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn the major characters and plot points of the play "Macbeth," by William Shakespeare, and a series of vocabulary terms related to theater and English:

Vocabulary Covered: 
-iambic pentameter
-dramatic irony	
-tragic flaw	
-comic relief	
No homework is assigned 
A short cheat sheet will be provided to help the student know what to do in case they have trouble navigating the escape room, etc.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will interact with a Nearpod which will have within it embedded videos from Youtube and websites such as Scratch, the digital Escape Room using Google Slides and Google Sites. The student does not need to set up any kind of account.

The play "Macbeth" does reference child murder and the occult. The content of the class is PG with only moderate scary images, but nevertheless, be advised that this play may not be appropriate for children under 13. Although this class tells objective historical facts about the witch trials of the 17th century, at no point are occult rituals quoted and at no point is any religious practice endorsed.
For the Digital Escape Room, I will use Scratch, Nearpod, Youtube, Google Sites, and the official website for the Tower of London:
