Guidelines for Weekly Journals( I NEED SIX JOURNALS)
At the end of the semester, you will be expected to turn in six journals. You must complete the journals by reading and analyzing comic books you have read outside of class. Yes, you may also use digital comics. If you have a phone or tablet, you can download Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse applications. Free comics are available (though I’d rather have you read an entire story arc rather than a single issue of a comic). Manga will work as well.
Here’s a nifty site where you can read free digital comics. Yeah!
Here’s how you go about it:
Begin with a brief summary. BRIEF. Then, continue with lens analysis: using one of the lenses (or approaches) you are exposed to, analyze the text. For example, perhaps you read Batman: The Dark Knight and decide to use the psychological lens to analyze the work. You select a psychological theory (Erikson’s stages of psychosocial development, for example) and you would determine which stage each of the characters seems to be at. (Interestingly enough, even though characters are three dimensional, they are often caught up in one of the conflicts Erikson discusses in his stages of psychosocial development. Batman, for example, might be caught up in stage 1: trust vs. mistrust. He’s not an infant, but he still seems to be caught up in that conflict, as well as several others.
NOTE: I am open to other options if you have a suggestion or an alternative idea for a journal entry. Please drop me a line!
