At the end of a semester reading a range of apocalyptic narratives, students have the option of producing a final extra credit project that responds to or extends the semester-long discussion. Having been quizzed in every class over the course of the semester, some students use this opportunity to respond in video. This semester the video responses included: a sermon, a short narrative film, a parody, and a research talk.
