Class Experience

The learners will be able to write a college level poetry analysis.
I studied literature and creative writing for four years. I have taught some poetry classes for children between the ages of 8-18 and some classes for adults. 
Each week there will be a poem that needs to be read along with a bio of the poet, history around the time the poem was written, and a 500-750 word analysis that will need to be completed by the next class meeting.
A journal or app in which the learners will write their analyses. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Improper assessment based on the growth of the learner in their analysis skills.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
I will try to keep the poems appropriate for the age group but it would be okay if the parents wanted to look over content. I would be happy to accommodate if more than one parent felt as if the content was too advanced for their child. 
I will provide all the reading materials via the classroom page. Each learner will need either a notebook or writing app in which they can type out there analysis. They will turn in their analysis to me via messaging the day before class or up to an hour beforehand.
