Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
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.

Homework Offered
The only homework will be to read more comic books!

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).
