Watch FILM AND READ ARTICLE!!
Your goal in this assignment is to: 1) identify the main ideas from the supplemental article and 2) extend the ideas by adding your own observation or speculation using the assigned class film as a source. You MUST demonstrate that you 1) have read the article and understand the findings, 2) then discuss connections with the film and how it extends (or does not extend) the ideas presented, and 3) Pose a question or further point for discussion that may prompt others to think (and to which your classmates may respond). Some possible ways to link the article and the film are presented below, but of course, these are not the only ways to respond, feel free to structure as works for you. Also, please note that the blanks in the examples below are not meant as spaces for words, but rather as spaces for thoughts (multiple sentences). A good post is typically between 200 and 300 words:
