Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
As they read The Invention of Hugo Cabret, students will peek at the early history of film through the eyes of a Depression-era French orphan, increase their understanding of the elements of narrative and graphic novels, and develop some facility with the tools writers need to write clear sentences and tell compelling stories.
This course is asynchronous; there are no class meetings so all work is completed outside class.
Students will receive learning resources with links to a read-aloud screencasts of each chapter but it would be ideal if they also had a paper or Kindle copy of the graphic novel.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
