Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will delve into deep conversations with peers about gender, race, and film. We'll learn about different countries and cultures that the films are set in. Students are encouraged to develop critical thinking skills about the media that they consume. This club also introduces students to introductory film concepts, which supports English language development skills, critical analysis skills, and media literacy. This club is discussion heavy; members are encouraged to share their thoughts, ideas, and questions and listen to the ideas of the others members. We work hard as a club to build each other up and foster a community of mutual respect and support. We play lots of trivia and occasionally include a film-related DIY!
I am a Ph.D. student in Gender, Feminist, and Women's studies with a specialty in film theory. I've been teaching kids and teens for over nine years on the intersections of gender, race, disability, and social justice!
Members of this club will need to watch the film of the week before class and come prepared to discuss the movie (spoilers are allowed in regards to the movie of the week, so try to catch the full movie before our meeting :)) 
Access to your local streaming services are usually the easiest ways to access these films. You can also reach out to your local library for copies that would be available to you at no cost. Most public libraries have their own online streaming services available for free with your library card (such as Hoopla Digital, Criterion on Demand, Kanopy, etc.).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There is no formal assessment for this class. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I have included films that are age appropriate and have been approved by other parents of OutSchool students. Please note the ratings for each film listed above. I have specifically chosen films that do not contain any explicit content, however some films may have brief language or violence. If you would like to see a detailed breakdown of content for any of the listed films, please visit this free resource: https://www.commonsensemedia.org/
