Description

Class Experience

My passions are writing and poetry, and it's my great joy that my five kids can quote Shakespeare and Longfellow. So many students claim to "hate" poetry, but that's often because poetry is difficult to understand. My goal is to give students the tools they need to unlock poems and also Shakespeare. Like John Keats suddenly understanding Homer once he read the English translation, I want my students to look "...at each other with a wild surmise/ Silent, upon a peak in Darien." 
Students are expected to read one Act and complete the questions and guide each day. This should take 1-2 hours. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
4 hours 35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Macbeth involves lots of murder, first of all. There are also incidents of cursing ("Out, damned spot!" yells Lady Macbeth). 

Additionally, parents should be aware that there is a minimal amount of sexual language, specifically when Lady Macbeth urges the spirits to "Unsex me here!" (ie, make me a man!), and when Malcolm says he is "unknown to woman" (translated as "I'm still a virgin").
