Class Experience

I hold a Masters Degree in English and Literature with a specialty in Gothic Literature. I wrote my masters thesis over Edgar Allan Poe and his feminine ideal. I have experience teaching Gothic Literature in public school and online. Plus, I really love this material and study it for fun! 
 1 file available upon enrollment
To prepare for the first class read "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe which is attached and accessible upon enrollment. The poem is relatively short and can be easily printed. Look for elements in the poem that build dread and suspense. Copies of the Gothic literature stories to be read during the week between class discussions will be provided after class each week to be read for the following week. I personally read "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe the first class meeting.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There is mild violence (monsters, ghosts, blood, and vampires!) This class is a "Book Club" style class, which means I give a lot of background information and the learner is encouraged (but not required)  to discuss their interpretation of the material.  This is a reading and discussion class.
