Description

Class Experience

I'm a naturalist with a focus on zoology, and mainly teach animal science courses...but as part of my longstanding interests in both the animal kingdom AND art and culture, I began conducting independent research on how animals have been depicted in art around the world, and am now back in graduate school working on a second Masters thesis about it! :) In conjunction with my current research, I am now offering this series of short courses on different subjects in Animals in World Art History in addition to my regular zoology classes.

I also have nearly two decades experience as a home education advocate, including homeschooling my own children from preschool through high school. I am a big proponent of flexible learning, individualized education, and supporting fellow neurodiverse learners, so please don't hesitate to reach out to me with requests for accommodations or additional resources.  We all learn in our own way and time, but everyone should have the chance to learn about how cool animals are! 😎
There is both reading and multimedia viewing material assigned with each week's topic.
Lesson materials are provided for free via the classroom, either as downloadable printables/files or links to online resources (web pages, videos, articles, etc.). 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Formal assessments will only be provided if the student or parent requests it in advance.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
I teach from a zoological perspective, and as such just like in my regular science classes natural animal behaviors and bodily functions may come up in the course of discussion. I also do not censor works of art.

Online resources: This class directs learners to watch curated video content on YouTube and may also direct learners to additional information on science and art websites (e.g., a zoological database or art museum collection page). No online account signups are required.
