Class Experience

Students will learn about how to recognize queer themes in animated media, as well as to thinking critical about LGBTQIA+ media. Students will also learn to engage in respectful, spirited debate with their peers and make connections across media boundaries.
Students will have one final assignment relevant to the class that will be presented as a loose prompt. Students can choose any critical medium to present their final project as: essay, video, PowerPoint, visual presentation, oral presentation, or more. More information will be given on the assignment as it nears at the end of the course, and the final project will be due one week after the end of class. 
Students will be given feedback on their final project, provided promptly after the end of the course. An evaluation report will also be provided to parents at the end of the course regarding the student's participation in the class. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class surrounds queer issues and themes regarding the queer community. It will be taught with a queer perspective in mind, assuming students are allies or members of the LGBTQIA+ community and are familiar with basic terms regarding gender or orientation.
