Each student will submit a paper that focuses on a film from a pre-approved list (on a separate document), to view and analyze utilizing course theory, concept, and themes. You would have already chosen a movie when the previous assignment was due. Each paper should be between 3-4 pages in length (Times New Roman, 12pt font, double spaced) and discuss some aspect of the film. This could include, but not limited to, discussing a character(s), setting(s), conflict(s), or overall film and it should be clear, which film was chosen for this assignment. In order to receive maximum points, students should discuss, explicitly, a theory, concept, or theme from the course to illustrate how it manifests or comes forward in the film. Finally, students should proofread, as grammar, structure, and overall presentation of paper will be graded. Each paper should include: name, date, and unique title in the header. A minimum of three (3) scholarly sources should be used to address the policy discussed in this paper. (Additional, non-scholarly sources are encouraged but cannot replace scholarly sources).
Any and all citations, including readings from the class or outside sources, as well as the film, should be cited in APA style citations for both in-text citations and reference page. A failure to properly cite references will result in a lowering grade
