Description

Class Experience

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learning how to write well was easier when it involved topics I enjoyed rather than being forced to read books I found outdated and boring in high school.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.
A few short assignments
Learner progress is assessed through participation, and through the progression in their assignments.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 4+ hours per week outside of class.
The series is TV-14 due to violent content and mature themes. The series does contain some explicit language as well. Other clips from other TV shows/movies are also used (see above) to better explain the terminology.
