Tina Johnson's Experience

January 2006Present (8 years 9 months)

Design and teach courses to life long learners.
Courses Taught:
Robert Frost's Winter Poems: Online version of the Robert Frost course described below with a focus on his winter themed poetry.

Revisiting Robert Frost: His Life and Poetry with the following course description: Robert Frost is a poet much beloved in New England and is one of our great American voices. His work transcends the boundaries of poetry; even people who are unfamiliar with poetry have been introduced to his work. Sometimes, the work we think we know best is in fact misunderstood; through inculcation, a voice can be diluted. Revisiting Frost, his life and work is a surprising journey.
