Class 1: The first class will focus on introductions to each other and to the class.

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learning how to write well was easier when it involved topics I enjoyed rather than being forced to read books I found outdated and boring in high school.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.
