Sem 2 Week 1
So we are back at it again for Semester Two and right off the bat, we were given our first assignment of the new semester!
This part of our course is all about Narrative, rethinking what we believe narrative to be and taking apart methods of storytelling to reveal what truly makes up a story.
Our assignment is that we will be divided into groups and each given chapters of the book The Writer’s Journey by Christopher Vogler. We have to conduct research of our chapters and retell them to the best of our ability to the rest of the class. After presentations, we will effectively have an understanding of the whole book.
I knew of Christopher Vogler only because he was mentioned last semester, and I haven’t read the whole thing yet but I had no idea that this book would be as good as it was. I don’t really enjoy films for their “intended use”, so to speak. I’m far too critical and always end up tearing them apart and focusing on implicit meanings. So this book was very exciting to get a hold of as it’s just the kind of analysis that I love! Mega excited about the book, not too keen on presenting it to the class.
I’m in a group with Ryan, Jessica and Michael and our chapters are Ally, Trickster and Ordinary World! Let the presentation planning commence!
