Language Arts

Sometimes I just get the itch to teach a class, so I share some cool stuff about the wonder that is Language Arts. These aren’t about any particular story or novel. They’re about other (equally interesting) topics.

The Hero’s Journey

This class explored the heroic archetype through the lens of familiar characters like Frodo and Katniss and Harry and Dorothy and Luke.

You’ll never watch a movie the same again after this class, because you’ll see the heroic archetype everywhere. And I mean everywhere.

There’s no reading for this one, so just jump in and watch class here.
