Class Experience

By our third and final class, learners will be able to provide a detailed explanation of how their preferred magic systems works. I will also present each student with a obstacle/scenario in which they will have to use their magic system to solve the problem presented to them.

There will be a short essay learners will be asked to read.
I'd recommend a sketch pad for learners to provide a drawn explanation of a magic systems flow, logistics, and application. I will not ask that students purchase any course reading in order to pass my class. If they are interested in books to further their interests however, I'll be more than happy to make some suggestions!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
A learner will receive a pass if they are able to create a magic system that solves the scenario they are presented with. If they are not able to solve this dilemma, they will be encouraged to think of ways they could have solved the problem, or ways to modify their magic system in regards to utility/practicality. These students will still receive a pass within my course (I want them to learn but still have fun after all). 
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
While there are endless examples of magic in fantastical settings being used to violent effect, I will encourage my learners to consider the more practical and altruistic uses for a magic system i.e. civil engineering/construction, boosting the fertility of blighted crops, and so forth.
