Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will be able to...
Identify and explain character archetypes.
Identify and explain symbolic representations in film and literature.
formulate character descriptions, profiles, and analysis both on a surface level and in depth.
understand what makes a good villain a good villain and how that villain drives the story.
understand and analyze the inner workings of a villain and what makes them a villain, on a personal and psychological level.
I have been a high school English teacher and speech and debate coach for almost 20 years.
Students are recommended to watch the films and take notes as needed; however, this is not required and students may still attend and participate in class without having watched the films. Films may be watched at any time.
Printed copies of the character chart and character profile worksheets or a notebook/journal dedicated to this class and writing utensils (many students may prefer to have multiple colors available).
There is no formal assessment; however, an informal assessment can be made on student learning outcomes based on in depth character profiles.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Parental discretion is strongly advised. Students are NOT required to watch the films, nor will any questionable content be shown in class. Some films to be discussed do contain an R rating due to violence, graphic content, or strong language. Parents should approve all films before allowing their children to watch.
Links will not be provided for films.  It is up to the parents and the student to find and/or acquire access to films. In some cases, edited versions may be available.

About Me

"I am not the teacher that you are looking for," as I wave my hand ever so slightly.

I will not fill your students with rainbows and sunshine. I am not super high tech in the computer age. I don't offer fluff and I have no gimmicks. No puppies,...
