Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Students will learn of different philosophies in a fun way and use it to analyze Loki, its characters, and the concept of the TVA.
Students tend to be more engaged when they have an actual interest in the content; I personally found that learning how to write well was easier when it involved topics I enjoyed rather than being forced to read books I found outdated and boring in high school. When I joined Outschool, I wanted to teach writing while also focusing on subjects that I am passionate about, and that students may be passionate about as well. While earning a degree in English, I learned how to write quality essays on numerous topics including film studies, which is a part of English that is both interesting and engaging; learning how to write film analyses truly enhances one's critical thinking skills. As a teacher, I like to create courses that are both challenging and fun. While in college, I became passionate about philosophy as well as the antihero mindset. Philosophy mixed with film and character analysis allows for a better understanding because it gives us an on screen example. It allows us to understand individualism in certain characters, as well as the "good" and "evil" that is present in every text.
