Mass Media

This class pays tribute to a teacher that made a difference in my life: Charles “Chuck” Townsend III. I paid tribute to Chuck by starting my own version of his famous “Mass Media” class with my high school students at the Odyssey Community School. I started the class by showing this pic and telling his story and listening / interpreting Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues”. Thanks again for all the inspiration Chuck and for pointing me in the right direction!

This class includes Film, Music & Gaming History: Viewing, listening to, writing & talking about music, images, film & gaming and how it all impacts who we are in today’s media-rich world.
