sensitivity to other cultural mores and customs
Monsters are always fascinating to contemplate, but it's equally interesting to peel away the title of monster and see what's underneath.  As a college rhetoric professor I've taught a course on Monsters & Society, so I've been researching monsters in history this past year.  This class will challenge students to think about why monsters hook our attention.  More importantly, students will become active learners in an attempt to figure out what these creatures might have been in our known world and how pranksters and the media can work side by side to exploit a gullible public. 
Students will have handouts to print up and fill out during class.  Students without a printer can also pull up the handout on their computer and fill it out without printing it.
I will provide handouts for students to use. This will help students retain and remember the material each day. We start each class with a review of the class the day before. Students will be able to earn points for their team by remembering the answers--and they can use the notes from their handout.
Students compete in two teams to see who can remember the most from yesterday’s lesson. There is a team winner at the end of each day and an overall team winner at the end of the week. 
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There will be a discussion of defense mechanisms used by animals at points in this class.  Such methods often involve bodily fluids. Students who promptly roll over shrieking with laughter at the mention of scat or urine will have to try to contain themselves.
