>>>PLEASE READ BEFORE ENROLLING: 1. The live portion of this class is an hour-long, fast-paced, lecture-based presentation, with limited Q&A breaks as time permits -- you know your learner(s) best, so please consider if the session length and format is a good fit for them. 2. Yes, I am a scientist and always teach from the perspective of evolutionary biology.<<< In this class, we will meet all known owl-like Pokémon from Gen 1 through Gen 8, and match them up to their real-life inspirations...
owl-like Pokémon survey; basic zoology of the order Strigiformes (Owls)
I am a zoologist who enjoys sharing my love of the animal kingdom with lifelong learners of all ages. I've also been playing video games since the first gen of everything, not just Pokémon ;) I also have nearly two decades experience as a home education advocate, including homeschooling my own children from preschool through high school. I am a big proponent of flexible learning, individualized education, and supporting fellow neurodiverse learners, so please don't hesitate to reach out to me with requests for accommodations or additional resources. We all learn in our own way and time, but everyone should have the chance to learn about how cool animals are! 😎
Additional resources are posted to the classroom after the live session for learners interested in exploring the topic more.
Any supplementary lesson materials will be provided for free via the classroom, either as downloadable printables/files or links to online resources (web pages, videos, articles, etc.).
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All my zoology classes are open to discussing animal anatomy, including the reproductive system, and natural behaviors and bodily functions, including predation and mating. Online resources: The class slides link to information on both Bulbapedia and Wikipedia, and after-class resources include links to optional curated video content on YouTube and Pokémon TV. Learners with specific questions may also be directed to additional information on the official Pokémon page and/or relevant pre-screened science-related pages (e.g., a research journal or zoological database). No online account signups are required.
