Students will analyze and study Christian themes as depicted in popular films. They will view films to find and analyze such themes as: Christology, Storytelling, Resurrection, Suffering and Redemption. There will be interactive discussion and analysis of these themes. Students will come to realize that God can be found in all places. They will understand that even “secular” films often demonstrate Christian themes that can help develop our faith if we look past the superficial entertainment value of films and move to an in-depth understanding, critiquing and analyzing them through the lens of our Christian faith.
Create stories for fun while learning and practicing the essential elements of all story forms. Students get a taste of writing poetry, short story, and other written forms of creative expression with emphasis on idea formation and development, structure, and essential literary elements. Students will have the opportunity to publish their creative works. Tools and elements practiced can aid students in improving academic writing skills.
