Course #1009030E

Heroes and Villains will focus on heroes and villains in stories (both on the page and screen), examining how the role of these characters has influenced the world around us.

Students will study the hero's journey, the purposes of a villain, and the intersection and overlap of both. Throughout the semester, students will engage in written and (asynchronous) discourse regarding heroes and villains. They will improve their skills in crafting claims and evidencing their ideas, as well as critiquing the work of their peers. The final student-led exploration will be a student-driven product of the learning to exemplify the facets of heroes and villains as they understand them.
