Weird History with Erin Vance
Learn writing skills useful in English and Social Studies while discovering some wacky, wild, and downright extraordinary history. Inspired by the podcast Stuff You Missed in History Class and the book Rejected Princesses, we’ll look at how people went to the toilet in Shakespeare’s time, the fates of Ireland’s Bog Bodies, and disasters like the Great Molasses Flood of 1919, plus more!. Weird History will be a celebration of the odd and unusual things that make us deeply human, deeply flawed, and deeply fascinating (The Great Emu War, anyone?).

Plunging into Poetry with Erin Vance
Learn some poems, write some poetry, and take a look at the lives of some of our most outrageous poets (before Lady Gaga, dadaist poet, Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven wore bird costumes and tomato cans, and Edgar Allen Poe died under circumstances as ominous and odd as his own poetry). This class will combine history, literature, and most of all, experimenting with poetry through games and exercises!
