Description

Class Experience

With the breadth and depth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as our canvas, students get the opportunity to hone their critical thinking skills, as well as practice having respectful conversations with their peers. 
I'm a huge fan of the science fiction and fantasy genres, and since childhood I've always loved superheroes and their stories.  I've seen all of the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) too many times to count, and am now excited for Marvel's foray into extended television series via Disney+.  My friends and I have spent many long nights discussing and debating every topic related to Marvel and its cast of superheroes.

As a teacher, I have extensive experience in managing classroom discussions of all ages and ability levels.  My goal is to ensure that every student has a chance to make contributions, provide their opinion, and/or demonstrate what they've learned.
There is no homework, but we will mostly likely devote the end of each session to discussing what topic(s) we want to have a conversation about in the following week.  This may prompt reading/watching assignments outside of class time. 
In the days prior to each session I will post a short list of discussion topics exclusive to that given week. Please note that every class stands alone, and therefore it is not necessary or required to attend each week the course is offered.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will receive informal feedback from me in the Classroom chat, and before and/or after our class. Feedback will also occur during the class session as well.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
All of the Marvel movies are rated PG-13 -- almost always for violence and language.  Themes of revenge, temptation, and betrayal are also prevalent.  With that said, if you are comfortable with your child watching films within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there should be nothing to worry about!
