Power Struggles: Level 3 English

Course Description

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” This course will use film to study power dynamics, where they come from, how they’re upheld, and how you fit into them. Your critical thinking skills will be used to identify power struggles present in your everyday life, and use visual text to express your opinions and thoughts on a specific power ideology. 

**Note, you have the opportunity to achieve Media Studies credits, as well as English credits in this course.
