During this one-time class, students will be taught differing philosophical viewpoints on morality, fate, and hope through the lens of The Hunger Games Trilogy. Students will also learn the names and thoughts of certain philosophers connected to topics studied during this class. Some of the philosophers that students will be introduced to during this course are as follows: Nicholas Rescher, Immanuel Kant, Simone Weil, Thomas Nagel, Arthur Schopenhauer, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Marcel Mauss....
Students will learn how to apply philosophical concepts and views to characters and events in The Hunger Games trilogy. Students will also gain familiarity with several philosophers.
I am the author of the book Mountains and Melancholy: A Collection of Poems About Life With Depression. Prior to joining Outschool, I was the Coping With Depression blogger at HealthyPlace.com for almost three years. I learned healthy coping skills over the years I spent in therapy, and I practice these skills daily. I am active in the mental health community. I feel my experience in this area has prepared me for teaching a class with heavy and challenging content. Finally, I have read all of The Hunger Games trilogy and watched all of the movies countless times. I have previously taught The Hunger Games, both here on Outschool and in other formats. Students will have the opportunity to discuss how each topic affects them and the characters in the trilogy.
No homework is assigned; however, I will give suggestions for further reading and research.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress will be assessed through class discussion and participation.
1 hour 25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There is some discussion of violence and disturbing imagery due to the nature of The Hunger Games trilogy.
