Thank you for the comment, Andrew. I'm glad you think my study guide could be used to analyze other forms of media. I compiled it years ago, long before I knew we'd be putting our own teaching materials on the Internet, so it was originally based on a variety of teaching materials I worked with. If you have ideas for how to expand it or write in applications for other media, please let me know. I'd be glad to revise or expand that web page with your ideas (and give you credit for those ideas on the web site, of course).
Used in course? Yes

I really like this, it's very complete and exhaustive. Even though it looks like it wasn't intended for that, I looked at it through the lens of being able to use those same approaches to analyze other forms of media, like movies and music as well.
