Outdoor Movie Screenings for EN350: The American Dream

This past Fall, Dr. Zaleski, a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow at Marymount, supplemented her upper-level LT2 course on The American Dream with a collection of outdoor film screenings to both develop community and share course content in the pandemic, which as we all know limits social interaction.

Despite some hiccups with our new outdoor screening technology, Dr. Zaleski triumphed!

She worked with IT and Student Activities, which had recently purchased an outdoor movie screen, to set up the events. Over the course of the term, Dr. Zaleksi paired her readings for EN350: The American Dream with three films, The Farewell (2019), Grapes of Wrath (1940), and Ya No Estoy Aquí (2020). What classes are you excited about this Spring?
