Description

Class Experience

Students will be able to identify the major differences between the representation of the classic monster in both film and print. They will learn about the origins of the monster figure in each medium, and how their portrayal affects popular perception of monsters. 
I have taught older students for 20 years, most of that time being in the field of language arts. I have a bachelor's degree from Central Connecticut State University, and a master's degree from The University of Connecticut. Complementary to this, I have taken graduate classes at Wesleyan University in literature, adolescent psychology, film, and television.  I have also participated in Saturday workshops at Columbia Teachers' College, which is designed to provide current models of literacy instruction. I write part time, and my 
work has won awards at both the local and national level. 
No homework will be assigned.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The class is based in discussion, and there is no formal assessment or letter grade. 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The class will include clips from the 1931 film versions of Frankenstein and Dracula, as well as passages from the text version of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and Dracula by Bram Stoker. The class content is appropriate for high school students. 
We will be discussing clips from the 1931 film versions of Frankenstein and Dracula, as well as passages from the text version of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and Dracula by Bram Stoker.
