Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will grow their love of literature while exploring their imagination.
Students will make text-to-text, text-to-self, and text-to-world connections (the story being the text in this case). 
Students will learn about literary elements and work on public speaking skills with learners who share the same interests
I have a Bachelor of Art in Maritime Studies with a focus in anthropology. Anthropology is the objective study of cultures and how societies live(d) and interact(ed). I also have a minor in anthropology focusing on Ancient civilizations (Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome) as well as more recent civilizations including the Mayans, Aztecs, and other Native American societies.
Learners are more than welcome to research the story beforehand, but it is not necessary. 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental guidance is always suggested. Some learners may find this content scary. 
Scientific American- an online science journal. This is writing offers an anthropological view of the story.
