Advanced Topics in Media will extend the analysis skills from Introduction to Media. We will focus on a long-term critical viewing, reading, and discussion of several television shows. Topics will vary from term to term, with each semester-long course covering two separate topics, at the discretion of the instructor. Potential long-term focuses include the topics of Science Fiction, the Anti-Hero in contemporary television, warrior women, and film noir / the mystery genre. Assignments will consist of discussions (both teacher- and student-led), short analytical essays, short presentations, and discussion boards.
Grades: 11, 12
