This class is taught in English.
Students will improve their understanding of a new geographical region’s intellectual growth and influence. Students will use various poetic terms to describe and develop ideas to discuss the poems they read and draw out meanings.

As a teacher from South East Asia, I bring a personal connection to the subject and themes discussed in these poems. As a teacher of literature and the humanities, I bring the knowledge of assessing and parsing them. With this dual connection to the poets and poems chosen for this class, I bring, engagement, excitement and relevance to each session.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal in class recall and discussions
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students will recieve links to the porms discussed in class as availble through the public domain.
