Class Experience

Learners will follow along with a lesson about the Japanese mythological creatures called Yōkai and the morals that the folklore was used to teach. This will provide learners with a new understanding about a fairly underrated and under-explored side of Eastern mythology. 
I am a History Teacher and have studied mythology from different parts of the world. One of my great interests lies in Japanese mythology. I have done some research on certain topics and I am excited to share what I know with learners!
No homework
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students may be asked small questions as the lesson progresses as simple checks for understanding. 
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Yokai address mythology from ancient Japan. Some of these spirits are regarded as demons. "Demon" in Eastern tradition does not necessarily mean the same thing as it does in Western religion. Two of the Yokai in this lesson have intense and mildly violent stories surrounding them. I will address this content in an appropriate way. None of this particular lesson has any sexual connotation. I will not be addressing Yokai that are associated with sex.
