MIND 288

Final Projects!

My students are blowing me away with their final projects this semester. Here are pictures of one student’s recreation of the hall of Rohan in The Two Towers:

Another student created a series of seasonal poems, inspired by Tolkien’s Tom Bombadil poetry, and bound them into a book:

Can’t wait to see what else they come up with!


Memes inspired by Tolkien’s Children of Húrin

This spring, as my MIND 288: The Worlds of J. R. R. Tolkien worked their way through The Children of Túrin, we devoted a class period to creating memes focusing on Túrin’s character (we had just read to the point where Túrin dwells with Mîm the Petty Dwarf for some time). I gave them three images from which to choose, and here are the results!

Here are the Túrin memes created with Alan Lee’s “Túrin Turambar.”
