Description

Class Experience

Students will strategize and invoke their creativity in order to come up with a story that makes sense. They will also learn how to work with other people in a setting that requires it.
With a BA in English, I have learned how to write creatively and academically. Movies and comic books are of high interest to me, and I love thinking up characters with powers. I have been teaching English on Outschool for a year, and tutored English for over twice as long. Alongside teaching English, I have also facilitated a discussion group, which is why I encourage open discussion with each class I teach; it enhances the overall class experience.
Students need to create an initial origin story, and any other homework is optional (like if they want to create the villain for a class).
Students need Google Docs for this class
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The first class includes the discussion of origin stories that already exist, and a YouTube video is shown to explain the "superhero Venn diagram." Comic books tend to have mature content, and some origin stories include traumatic events. Class is learner led, so students may write something graphic/mature.
