Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of urban legends in horror folklore from both a literary and historical lens.
I am a certified teacher and taught in the public school system for seven years. I am a veteran homeschool educator. I have taken several folklore courses online, and I have taught literature, mythology, and folklore classes to middle and high school students. I have also led literature workshops for adults. I am currently enrolled in graduate school earning my MA in English.
There is no mandatory homework for this class; however, I will offer suggested reading and resources for further study. 
No supplies are needed for this class.
Learner progress is assessed informally through class participation.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Urban legends featured in this class contain violence, frightening events, and macabre imagery.
