Class Experience

Students will identify the difference between fairy and faerie folklore and learn about cultures and stories that feature each.
I have taken several online courses about folklore and mythology. I also have an extensive collection of folklore storybooks and folklore theory books. I have taught and currently teach folklore, mythology, literature, poetry, and history classes. I am currently in graduate school earning my MA in English.
There is no mandatory homework; however, I will offer suggestions for further reading.
Informal assessment will be done through class discussions and participation
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Some stories feature violent imagery
