    Depending on how crafty the students are, maybe a cosplay assignment?

    There might be region coding involved, and I can't really tell because I'm Canada (wow, I don't get to say that very often!) but it looks like you can view Fanboy Confessional online at Space's official website: http://www.spacecast.com/fanboyconfessional.aspx

    I'm wary about scaring them off with a concept they're probably quite unfamiliar with. Maybe in the future but certainly not the first time I run it.

    Of course, I have to convince the school's curriculum board to approve it first. The English Faculty loves the idea, mainly because we'll be reading more and introducing concepts they do in literature courses later on, but the english head didn't think the board would tick off on it ... mainly because it'd be too 'out there' for more conservative people.

    Which annoys me since they have such electives ... well, one of them is going out for a bicycle ride. Hrm.

    Maybe you could choose a specific pop culture "brand" - like The Avengers or Buffy and follow it through all the different media and the associated phenomena like fan-fic and cosplay.

    I don't think I could stretch it out that long, honestly.

    I'd rather do snapshots of different brands and titles and keep it really fast paced.

    Crap, I want to make a joke about keeping it under an hour, but I'm just guessing you haven't seen the last episode of 30 Rock.
