Workshop Class Proposals, Summer 2017: Session 1
Do YOU Need This Form?

If you are a current teacher and would like to continue teaching, just read the next sections and fill out the form below.

  • If you are a) a current townie who has previously taught classes, b) a townie who has never taught before but would like to now, or c) an alum/expat who would be returning to the island to teach, YAY. You, as of the October 2015 policy changes, just need to drop us a line (at fandomhighadmins@iambicnut.com) to let us know you're coming back, then mosey on down to fill out the class proposal!


  • If you are a current teacher wanting to move to townie status, also drop us a line and don't worry about filling out the class proposal part. Obviously. If you are a current teacher heading off island for the second part of the summer, note that in ye olde "what are you doing this summer" post. If your teacher is running away for good, tell us over here in the dropped character post.


  • If you are a current teacher and would like to continue teaching, just read the next sections and fill out the form below.


  • What If I Want To Teach Adults At The Community Center?

    Community center classes, much like FH classes, can be whatever the teacher wants them to be. If you want to teach a craft or life skill, or hold weekly lectures on why your character is the most awesome ever, that is your choice. The key is getting other players (and their characters) interested enough to show up each week. The difference between community center classes and FH classes is that while we would require someone teaching a course as their job to post weekly, there is no requirement for a class to show up.

    Any adult can teach a community center course just for fun, too, in addition to their regular job. Again, just fill out the form here and let us know so we can put it on a little schedule, so players can know in advance that there will be a class available in which to participate.

    What's Needed For A Workshop?

    • The ability to come up with 7 weeks worth of classes.
    • The ability to post each class by noon Pacific or 3pm Eastern the day it's scheduled (you can also post the night before).

    • The ability to interact with your students (slow play is fine, you don't need to be around all the time). The workshop can always be a part two of the course you're currently teaching!




    The Form



    Remember, not hearing from us right away is good - we will e-mail current/returning teachers Tuesday night to let them know the workshops are okay.

    Your teacher character's form will need to be in these comments by Sunday, April 23rd for great scheduling justice.

[b]Character Name:[/b] Hera Syndulla, Kanan Jarrus
[b]Workshop Name:[/b] Getting to Know Your Own Backyard - Exploring the Solar System
[b]Fandom High School or Community Center class? (FH or CC):[/b] FH
[b]Workshop Synopsis (for public use in FH class sign-ups/CC class information):[/b] The solar system is a vast place, but the people of Earth have barely managed to explore their own backyard and wave hi to the neighbors. Now's your opportunity to change that. Go on trips around the local solar system's planets, with landings where possible, to learn more about the planets orbiting Sol right along with your teachers.
[b]Further Details on the Workshop (A description including any ideas you have for individual classes so far. If this is a community center class, let us know if it will be an AM or PM class.):[/b] What it says on the tin - we'll be covering a planet a week, just visiting them courtesy of Hera's ship and finding out about each one. No landing anywhere that will kill people.
[b]Preferred Days (2):[/b] Monday, Friday.
[b]Anything Else?[/b] Nope!

[b]Character Name:[/b] Wade Wilson
[b]Workshop Name:[/b] Arts and Crafts
[b]Fandom High School or Community Center class? (FH or CC):[/b] FH

[b]Fandom High School or Community Center class? (FH or CC):[/b] FH
[b]Workshop Synopsis (for public use in FH class sign-ups/CC class information):[/b]
STOP BOILING ALL THE THINGS, STEVE.

Once you leave Fandom, you will no longer be able to depend on happily appearing takeout and magically filling fridges to survive on. You need to either learn how to cook (ugh), or order takeout, which sometimes involves talking to people on a phone (more ugh). This class will teach you how to not starve, how many times in a week in a row it's okay to eat cereal out of the box, and why putting a metal pot into the microwave is a terrible, terrible idea.

[b]Further Details on the Workshop (A description including any ideas you have for individual classes so far. If this is a community center class, let us know if it will be an AM or PM class.):[/b]
[b]Preferred Days (2):[/b] T/Th but we're easy, not dirty.
[b]Anything Else?[/b]

[b]Workshop Name:[/b] Pole Dancing For Fitness
[b]Fandom High School or Community Center class? (FH or CC):[/b] FH
[b]Workshop Synopsis (for public use in FH class sign-ups/CC class information):[/b] Pole dancing: not just for Da Club any more! It can promote fitness, teach you about muscle groups you didn't even know you had, and be fun! Plus you get to wear six-inch Lucite platform heels. You know you want to. (Students will be expected to remain fully clothed at all times, barring magical island shenanigans.)
[b]Further Details on the Workshop (A description including any ideas you have for individual classes so far. If this is a community center class, let us know if it will be an AM or PM class.):[/b] Vanessa ticked the wrong box and fully meant to teach this to adults at the community center. Her bad!
[b]Preferred Days (2):[/b] Y'all pick!
[b]Anything Else?[/b]

[b]Character Name:[/b] Anakin Skywalker

[b]Fandom High School or Community Center class? (FH or CC):[/b] FH
[b]Workshop Synopsis (for public use in FH class sign-ups/CC class information): Go around planet Earth, eating weird food, driving strange vehicles, and severely testing the liability insurance limits of the school! You will not die! Probably!
Obi-Wan's not here to insure that this year....
[/b] [b]Further Details on the Workshop (A description including any ideas you have for individual classes so far. If this is a community center class, let us know if it will be an AM or PM class.):[/b] Whoo-hoo Amazing Race rip-off!

Class topics will include (but are not limited to):

- What is food?
What makes something “food”? How do cultural and individual preferences affect this?
- Why do we eat?
Is sustenance the only reason for consumption of food? What pleasure do we derive from
food, and why? What other significance do we attach to it?
- Food culture:
What other aspects of civilization revolve around food? How does the way we address
food relate to the way we address the world?

b]Further Details on the Workshop (A description including any ideas you have for individual classes so far. If this is a community center class, let us know if it will be an AM or PM class.):[/b] See above! He's taught this before, though I'll endeavor to make it a bit different than before.

[b]Preferred Days (2):[/b] Monday or Friday, not the same day as Hera and Kanan's class.

[b]Anything Else?[/b] Nope!


[b]Character Name:[/b] Sparkle
[b]Workshop Name:[/b] Show and Tell
[b]Fandom High School or Community Center class? (FH or CC):[/b] FH
[b]Workshop Synopsis (for public use in FH class sign-ups/CC class information):[/b] Just like the class name says- students will bring something to class, show it off, and then talk about it. Because who doesn't like showing off a little from time to time for an easy grade?
[b]Further Details on the Workshop (A description including any ideas you have for individual classes so far. If this is a community center class, let us know if it will be an AM or PM class.):[/b] Just like it says on the tin! Just a whole summer term of letting students bring in something and then wave it around and talk about it, or demonstrate how it works or whatever. Sparkle might give them themes to aim for the week before, like 'pets' or 'games,' in order to give people a little inspiration.
[b]Preferred Days (2):[/b] Tuesday or Thursday
[b]Anything Else?[/b] Please save me from finches.

[b]Workshop Synopsis (for public use in FH class sign-ups/CC class information):[/b] Putting a focus not only on visual arts, but also on theatrical art and the written word, this class explores some of the many art forms of the Japanese culture, giving students an opportunity to try their hand at creative endeavors such as origami, ikebana, haiku, and noh theater.
[b]Further Details on the Workshop (A description including any ideas you have for individual classes so far. If this is a community center class, let us know if it will be an AM or PM class.):[/b] I think the synopsis pretty much covered it! A whirlwind exploration of Japanese culture as taught by Dances With Samurai Tom Cruise.
[b]Preferred Days (2):[/b] Monday or Friday, whichever isn't already taken for Hera and Kanan's class, please.
[b]Anything Else?[/b] You can never have too many arts and crafts classes.

[b]Character Name:[/b] Kathy Li and Raven Darkholme
[b]Workshop Name:[/b] Iron Fandom
[b]Fandom High School or Community Center class? (FH or CC):[/b] FH!
[b]Workshop Synopsis (for public use in FH class sign-ups/CC class information):[/b] DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE FANDOM'S BEST CHEF?!!! Find out! With weekly challenges and (possibly impersonated) celebrity guest judges, Iron Fandom looks to sort the great-chef-wheat from the average-student-chaff!
[b]Further Details on the Workshop:[/b] Taking place in a Danger Shop-generated kitchen, students will be asked to create AMAZING dishes that must contain a specified ingredient. Necessary ingredients will range in difficulty from things like "marshmallows" to "durian fruit" to "fishheads" (and possibly worse!) with judges that decide on a winner based on such esoteric criteria like flavor, creativity, and student participation. "Celebrity judges" may be on-island personalities (our own other characters and other guests if folks are interested), or Raven pretending to be people. Any impersonations of PC characters will get OOC permission beforehand!
[b]Preferred Days (2):[/b] Tuesday or Wednesday
[b]Anything Else?[/b] Raven is totally going to be Paul Hollywood for at least one class. Complete with side-eyes and "Don't eat that, Kathy"s.

Kathy: I should have remembered I'm a vegetarian before deciding today's secret ingredient is fishheads. DAMMIT, ME!

[b]Fandom High School or Community Center class? (FH or CC):[/b] FH
[b]Workshop Synopsis (for public use in FH class sign-ups/CC class information):[/b] Given the number of times something will try to kill you, not dying is generally a good idea, and you know what really good way of not dying is? Getting the other first.
[b]Further Details on the Workshop (A description including any ideas you have for individual classes so far. If this is a community center class, let us know if it will be an AM or PM class.):[/b] Premptive self-defence (aka fighty) class!
[b]Preferred Days (2):[/b] Thurs/Fri
[b]Anything Else?[/b]
