Linked With: CJ 130-634 Public Speaking (3 Cr)
Schedule: MWF 9:00 - 9:50 AM
In this FLC we will seek to understand the differences between love, lust, and passion as presented in literature and film. We will read a novel, a play, short stories, poems, and nonfiction texts. We will also view films that depict a variety of human relationships. In our discussions, we will analyze the relationships in connection to our own lives. How can we learn from both the good examples and mistakes of others, real or fictional? Students will keep journals, write six 1-2 page response papers, a love poem, one 3-4 page memoir, and a final 6-8 page research project. They will also give an oral presentation that is based on the research project. We will attend an artistic performance related to our discussions and hold an Academy Awards day.
