Class Experience

Students will learn how Shakespeare wrote his poetry and plays by learning the basics of iambic pentameter, Dramatic Structure, rhyming couplets, and sonnets.
Students will work on turning in a sonnet for a grade. We will work on the rhyming couplet together as a class, and then I will send a worksheet about the form of sonnets for the students to fill out. They will then email me the final version for a grade.
A worksheet on how to write sonnets will be supplied. In addition, a handout on plot structure and soliloquy will also be provided.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will receive a participation badge for posting comments. Students will receive a digital badge for their sonnet, and a participation certificate for completing all course work.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
No outside resources are required.
