Class Experience

Students will use the class text (Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare) to learn about the key elements of a sonnet including lines, rhyme-scheme, syllables, and meter.  They will also be challenged to comprehend a beginners understanding of the central-text itself.
Bachelor's degree plus a certification to teach secondary students (with an endorsement in English/Language Arts) through the University of Nebraska at Omaha
Learners will not have homework but will have Skeleton notes provided to ensure comprehension of content.
Skeleton notes will be provided (for each lesson)
Completion of skeleton notes as well as class discussion.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The poem is romantic and a more complex study can reveal sexual imagery HOWEVER this kind of analysis will not take place in this course.  A beginner and more age-appropriate study of the poem will take place.
Printer (for skeleton notes) is useful but not required (notes can be filled out on a computer, but learner will have to switch back and forth between Skype and Word Document, printing the notes will be easiest)

About Me

I fell in love with literature fairly late in life which means I get to experience the joy of learning and teaching simultaneously.  I will absorb anything related to English/Language-Arts (reading, writing, etc) and sponge it out with excitement...
