You teach Rowling in a Literature class? What level is that?

It will be an 11th and 12th grade elective. I've wanted to teach it for a while, but I did not have the nerve to suggest it until a group of students came to me and asked me to do it. I was honored that they wanted me to propose and then teach the class. The students are a higher level group, and I intend to teach the class at a college freshman/sophomore level. Some things we will explore include religion or lack of in the series, Chekhov's gun, hero and monomyth cycle, love and sacrifice, power, mythology, etc. I would like to discuss the social issues in the series and how they compare to modern day social issues. I hope I can get it all in!
