Keep Doing The Write Thing
THIS IS A WRITING HEAVY CLASS.
This class will examine the quest narrative according to Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey that we studied in block 1. We will read a selection of short stories and use our analysis skills to draw connections between the stories. There will be a fair amount of sustained silent writing so if you are looking for a chance to improve your writing, you’re in the ‘write’ spot! This means that you will need to be prepared with a pen/pencil, paper, or your own technology (not a mobile phone!). Booking laptops is possible but not always guaranteed.
Part of studying a story or film is thinking about how it relates to you. I’ll be asking you to think about how you’re on a journey full of twists and turns. This is a chance to reflect on your lives and realise that you’re all on the path to becoming heroes!
