Comment Fortunately (Score 1) 1021

Luckily I was able to take a course like this in my junior year in high school (admittedly this was back in 1998/99). While I can't remember every project we did, the teacher was really into it and the class was very enjoyable. The three biggest things we did that I remember were watching (and/or reading if a film and book were both made, to compare the versions) Blade Runner, Ender's Game and 1984. Those three have stuck with me and made a very big impression, so I'd wager they're a good starting point. Most of the students really enjoyed them and class discussion was always a lot of fun when so much genuine interest was present.

Money is the root of all evil, and man needs roots.
