Class Experience

Students will learn the messages of the poem, The Raven. They will also learn biographical information on the author, Edgar Allan Poe. They will learn what it means to call something "American Literature" as well as other works in that genre during the same time in our history. Students will learn how to read literature and respond to it, using context clues, historical author information as well as their own ideas. Students will also find their own unique voice in creating their own brief sample of literature to match the genre as well as the language of the poem.
There will be no homework! We will have plenty of time to read the poem on our 90-minute session as well as all other activities planned for the class.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Students will only need their eyes and ears (and creativity) for the class. I have provided the PDF of the poem to our course for review. Students are welcome to read ahead of time, but it is not required.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The assessment will be their own written stanza. They will take all that they learned from the course and use it to create text that would fit into the subject matter, time period, language and genre of the poem.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Edgar Allan Poe's work is, sometimes, considered to be of the "horror" genre of literature. While The Raven is part of his catalogue of work, there are no direct references to horror, but parents should be aware of the reputation of this early American author.
