Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper introduces students to the study of the arts. We start by looking at human creative expression in general, then move to storytelling. We'll be looking at the earliest forms of stories, myths, then we’ll investigate various folktales and begin exploring the structures common to all stories, before turning to more modern examples and media. Then we'll look at stories about the past, and how they are both similar and different to fictional ones.

Moodle:

Moodle is the online space for students to connect with each other as well as with teaching staff outside of the face-to-face classes. Students will use the site to ask questions of staff, participate in online discussions, and complete selected learning activities. You can also find assessment instructions, submit your completed assessments, access feedback, and keep track of your grades there.

To access Moodle, sign into your university login and click on the “Moodle” link. Moodle will be your main source of information for the course.

Panopto:
