a. Remember, you will appreciate this when it is your turn to lead the discussion?

  • Compare to what you have learned in other courses or current events (news)
  • Focus on the scholarship
  • A part of the film that you found confusing and why

  • This film does not accurately portray
  • The film’s use of x… (lighting, dialogue, etc.)
  • The author of X article might state that…
  • Based on the film, people may assume that… (can be positive or negative)
  • The people/events portrayed in the film…
  • Comparison to other films we have watched
  • Critique: you do NOT have to like the film or agree with its point of view! We will always talk about both the positives and negatives
  • Interpretation with context
    • I do not think this film portrayed X event well because…
    • The author of X article accurately analyzed the film…
    • The author of X article DID NOT accurately analyze the film…
  • This film does a good job of explain X topic/politician/branch of government.

Don’ts:

  • Broad question: “What is the theme”
  • Obvious answers (Is this film about Vietnam?)
  • Ask the same question each week (I will check/know!)
  • Ask questions before watching/reading
  • Assume the film is a perfect representation of what it sets out to portray!
