Welcome to The Folk School of Fairbanks

Instructor Class Proposal Form

  • Class Description: A class description should both inform and entice. You want to provide potential students a very good sense of what they can expect when taking the class, conveying that precise, accurate information in an interesting and engaging way. As you compose your course description, consider how you might address the following questions:

    1. What is (title of your class)? (Example: Printmaking is the process of ......)

    2. Why would I want to take this class? (i.e. what is the "hook" to entice me to join?)

    3. What information/content will I learn in this class?

    4. What skills will I learn in this class?

    5. What tools or methods will I use in this class?

    6. What will I produce in this class? Will I make my own or will it be a group project?

    7. What is the sequence of teaching/learning during this class? (i.e. first, we will _________, then we will _______ and with that we will ________________)

    8. Will I have any opportunities to extend my learning or apply it in other ways?

    Here is a link to an example of an excellent class description, for reference purposes: http://thefolkschoolfairbanks.org/event/savoring-highbush-cranberries.
