In this class, students will learn film and popular culture analysis using "Stranger Things."

Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
Students will learn to improve their critical thinking and writing skills while also learning how to view a television show as an academic text.
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learning how to write well was easier when it involved topics I enjoyed rather than being forced to read books I found outdated and boring in high school. Any medium can be studied academically, including video games, television shows, books, comic books, and films. 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, like Stranger Things. 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. As a teacher, I like to create courses that are both challenging and fun.
