4. Monday Show & Discuss: Assassination Classroom

Every Monday from 3:00-4:00 p.m. in 115 ED, Dr. Patrick Vrooman will screen and discuss two episodes of the anime adaption of Yūsei Matsui’s Assassination Classroom. All are welcome.

Assassination Classroom is about what happens when a strange, octopoid creature becomes the new teacher of Class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School. This creature has already destroyed the moon, but really wanted to teach junior high before he destroys the Earth. The government agrees to the creature's terms but is training these students to assassinate their teacher before the year is up. If the students succeed, they save the earth and get a billion yen. It is a strange, but instructive, examination of teaching, learning, and schooling. Please join us each week.

Just another great opportunity from Educators in Context & Community (ECCO), a learning community for ed majors and the ed curious, and Free Skool BG.
