Those are the ones that have already been taught. I have the class notes as Google documents linked to a few of them and plan to clean them up and expand them to be real stand alone classes and post them on the blog. I've been talking to a friend about helping me do a bit of changing and adding around here so I can have a tab to post class notes and tutorials in a spot that is easily found. Hoping to have that done before Christmas. (I'd say earlier, but we're both costumers so Halloween time is crazy busy.)
The 4 classes I'm scheduled for at Kingdom Collegium next month will bring me up to 16, so I'll at least be past the quarter mark on the 50. I'm excited by that. They should also finish my Fellowship requirements, but I haven't gotten any confirmation on that yet.
13. 16th century sumptuary law: comparing England, Italy, and the Low Countries
14. 16th century Italian female poets
15. Pomander balls using a recipe from Nostradamus
16. 16th century Italian proto-feminist writings
As I am the retiring bard at Toys for Tots the following weekend in November, I'm hoping to teach a class on storytelling and start in on my requirements for The College of Performing Arts as well as creep a bit closer to the halfway mark.
