This class will introduce students to different kinds of movie thrillers, from the police procedural ("The French Connection") to serial killer films (Lang's "M" and "The Silence of the Lambs") to political thrillers (Frankenheimer's "The Manchurian Candidate"), the heist film (Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs"), and Hitchcock (maybe "Strangers on a Train"). Great thrillers have important existential themes, about guilt and innocence, identity, gender and sexuality, violence, and the social contract. There will be a significant writing component of the class to develop skills in exploring complex ideas. The class will also provide students with a framework for understanding film as a narrative form and as an art form.

Ecological Restoration is the practice of intervening to renew degraded ecosystems. With the wide variation of ecosystems, even here in Colorado, how do researchers determine which ecological sites need restoration and which are healthy? The Restoration Ecology Academy will take an in depth look at the ecosystems in Colorado. We will examine how ecosystems are evaluated. Students will have the opportunity to work alongside researchers to gather and analyze data from our local Mud Lake near Nederland, Colorado. They will learn about the components and functions of healthy ecosystems by taking several field trips to local ecological sites where they will practice evaluating the state of ecosystem functions. With the foundation of ecosystems built we will then explore the many ways invasive species can alter ecosystem characteristics such as water quality, soil structure, biodiversity, and wildfire cycles. After learning how invasive species can throw off an ecosystem’s balance we will explore how we can use that knowledge to help restore ecosystem functions.
