Heroes and Monsters – Grade 11 Main Lesson

This course includes a research project with presentation and practice in reading image and film as text. This year, research projects included such topics as: comparing depictions of Quasimodo as a monster in films of ‘Hunchback of Notre Dame’; the development of Godzilla from atomic monster to savior of humanity; and the central American myth of La Llorona, a native myth and children’s story of an old woman who haunts river banks mourning the drowning of her own children.
