Your Final Critique should include a thesis, which specifies exactly what is being analyzed in the paper. Your thesis/opinions should be supported by specific
examples from the film(s), as well as materials from the text, other assigned readings, or your outside research.
Follow MLA Format Guidelines (see Page 8 for in the Syllabus for further details).
Length: Student responses should be substantive and reflect knowledge of the material. Papers should be 4 full pages in length, formatted according to MLA standards,
and include a Works Cited page. Relevant images – of a reasonable size – may be included, and should be accompanied by a caption, or referred to in the body of the
text. (Note: Images will not be counted as text.)
Your Final Critique should include at least three sources. Do not use Wikipedia as a source. There have been times when the information was not totally accurate.
Poor grammar (including incomplete or run-on sentences, improper punctuation, etc.) and spelling will negatively affect your grade.
Submit your Final Critique by uploading it as an attached document using Microsoft Word or Rich Text Format.
Topics – Your Final Critique will analyze the messages and themes in a particular film or film genre using some areas of culture discussed throughout the semester.
You may use a film currently in the theaters or you may choose a favorite film or film genre. One of the topics from the textbook could be useful in investigating or
understanding these challenges.
