S.H.S. welcomes new elective class

  S.H.S. welcomed a new elective class during the new school year. The class also known as film & lit is now an elective class for students to take during the school year.

  The class film and lit is an elective course that helps students understand historical and stylistic elements of cinema. While in the class students will examine the visual interpretation of literary techniques and auditory language in films and the limitations or special capacities of film versus text to present a literary work. In class, students watch films actively and critically, analyze film as a cultural phenomenon, question their own role as a spectator, and evaluate film as artistic expression, historical document, and ideological expression.

English teacher Haley Farringer developed the whole curriculum and is very excited to start teaching the new class. Dean of Students Alexandra Miller she was very “thankful for Ms. Farringer’s willingness and commitment to support the students at S.H.S.”
