Average rating:4.8Number of reviews:(162)
This class delves into the magical world of Mermaids, Mer-men and Water Babies to explore their history and surrounding mystique within literature and various cultures.

Class experience

Students will explore the history and mythology of Mermaids, Mer-men and Mer-babies from ancient times to modern times.
Students will understand how mythical "Merfolk" sea creatures in literary works changed throughout history and students will also see how these imaginary sea creatures were viewed depending on the culture and time period.
Students will be able to identify why these types of characters were used in literature and why they are still used in literary works today.
I have had a life long love of history especially folklore. I have conducted years of research in children's literature. In fact, I have hundreds of vintage children's out of print books in which to cultivate topics that have been long forgotten.  As an educator by trade, I have found that young people need to be exposed to many types of subjects. With this in mind, I have developed this class to show students fascinating areas of study they may never have been exposed to before. 

I have 20+ years of teaching experience in English and English literature. I hold a bachelor's degree in Journalism with a minor in Spanish. I also hold a College Reading and Learning (CRLA) certification as well as having years of experience as a writing consultant for our local college. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Parental guidance is not necessary. Note:  While, this is a secular class, Greek mythology will be used as far as names and descriptions of various gods associated with this topic.
