All the requirements and details are listed below. Select one of the films.
Each of the movies below includes some issues we have discussed in class. I am listing these because I have seen most of them. They are available for streaming on Netflix. I will try to think of some more. The extra credit paper should be about two pages typed and it should discuss how the movie depicts the social sciences issue of your choice. I do not want a summary of the movie. I will not give you credit for this if your paper is just a summary. I want you to use the ideas about the social sciences to discuss the movie.
Think of it as a 5-paragraph essay:
paragraph 1- introduce movie (a one to two sentence description) and the explain the issue you will discuss
paragraph 2, 3, 4 – each paragraph should be an example of how you see the issue you have chosen to discuss
paragraph 5- conclusion
It is due on the last day of class.
