We were able to secure a later deadline for ASU’s Poetry in America course enrollment period – the new deadline is THIS Friday 1/14/22! Remember- this is a unique course with a specific sign-up window and course content. $25 to participate. Decide later if you want college credit. No guarantees that we will have access to it again.
If you are a new student with no ASURITE ID, do it today! You need 2-3 business days to get your ID to be able to sign up for the course. Ea.Asu.Edu/partners/HS4CC
Make sure HS4CC is in the URL or you can’t register.
If you are an existing student and you’re in the HS4CC portal, the course should be available in your dashboard. If it isn’t, please report to us in this post AND contact the UL team immediately (don’t know if they’re there today)
If you’re not in the HS4CC portal but are an existing high school student, we recommend switching to our portal bc sometimes we have special course access or beta classes and you won’t want to miss out on them. We don’t make a dime off of the portal, it’s just to help manage these special offerings. Contact them via the options above. You can also have them enroll your high school aged student manually if not in the portal.
Costs are the same as always: $25 to sign up and take the course, $400 optionally at the end if you like the grade.
FAQ for this Course:
Q: What do you think this course will satisfy if we transfer to other schools?
Depends on your degree plan and school, but generally speaking, this is likely to be applied in the following order: English elective, General Education elective, plain old elective.
Q: Is there a way to gain more credit and/or credit that might satisfy a general education requirement?
Yes! We highly recommend that you take a look at a couple of CLEP tests. American Literature, and Analyzing and Interpreting Literature. A sample syllabus, by Andrea LaBass, for doing the American Literature CLEP is posted in the ASU group in one of the posts for Poetry in America. Somewhere around week 5 of the CLEP syllabus is where the era of poetry in this course picks up. It could be off a little here and there, but one could feasibly run the CLEP course and the ASU course side by side to pick up the authors, orators, and poets from the rest of the time periods covered by the American Lit CLEP.
Q: Do you have more information?
Yes! ASU gave us a preliminary draft of the Syllabus for this course. You can view it in our ASU Course group on Facebook, click on Files from the group menu to find this and other courses’ Syllabi.
Q: Can I see some examples of course content?
The Poetry in America site has examples from their list of courses – there are many! You want to look at the Civil War through Modernism.
Q: I don’t see the course in my Dashboard after logging in. What do I do?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org, and include your ASURITE ID and name. Ask to be placed into the course. (see notes above about joining the HS4CC portal, so you don’t have to do this next time.)
Q: I am an adult. Can I take this course also?
No, unfortunately, this is only for High School students this time.
Q: When will this be offered again?
We don’t know. We requested this course for about 2 years, for our group. It’s unclear as to when they will allow us to offer this course to our members again.
Q: Are there any adults or other non-homeschooled kids in this course?
No adults, but there will be some kids from another high school program who will be in this cohort.
