Description

Class Experience

Students will learn the specific dynamics that can be discussed in comic books and will be able to follow the ethics that are laid out by the writers regarding the type of character.
Aside from being an English teacher, I am also an avid comic book reader. Comics are a text to be analyzed just as much as novels; I have learned that a "text" involves more than just novels and can include films, video games, books, pictures, and more. Using costumed (or sometimes un-costumed) characters, readers can engage in ethical discussions.
The only homework will be to read more comic books!
Students may access comic books through paid subscriptions, physical copies, or may find free online.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Comic books, especially those involving anti-heroes or villains, usually have more mature content that may be sexual or violent, and many comic books have explicit language. For example, many characters' origins include the death of a loved one, or some other traumatic event. Since this class is learner led, students have free rein over which characters we discuss in a vote each week, and despite having extensive comic book knowledge, I do NOT know every character chosen until I do more research. If parents are concerned about children discussing certain characters, please message me so that we can work something out (skip certain weeks or transfer to another section).
