Teachers and students can learn something new everyday from more than 35 of the world’s greatest minds in MasterClass, an instructional website where artists share insights about their craft. The digestible, 10-minute online lessons are accessible on any device at anytime. For example, in 28 short lessons, The Goosebumps author R.L. Stein teaches how to generate ideas, outline a plot, and hook young readers from the first page. The 24 lessons with author Judy Blume show how to develop vibrant characters that captivate readers. In 28+ lessons, Chris Hatfield, former commander of the International Space Station, teaches the science of space exploration and what the future holds. Individuals looking for other “tricks of the trade” can explore the class by Bob Woodward, who teaches investigative journalism, or they can learn the art of performance with Usher. The website provides video previews of these classes and more. The cost of a single class is $90. MasterClass also offers an all-access pass for $180/year.
