Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about and discuss Baba Yaga as featured in Slavic folklore.
I have taken several online courses about folklore and mythology. I also have an extensive collection of folklore storybooks and folklore theory books. I have taught and currently teach folklore, mythology, literature, poetry, and history classes. In these classes, we sometimes deal with violent concepts or imagery. Any discussions of violence will be handled appropriately and within the folkloric content of this class.
There is no mandatory homework for this class, but I will offer suggestions for books and resources for those interested in learning more about Baba Yaga and Slavic folklore.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress is assessed informally through class discussion and participation. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In folklore stories, Baba Yaga has been known to cook and eat children and this will be discussed in the class. 
I will refer to online sources as well as to my collection of books about Baba Yaga and books containing stories of Baba Yaga.
