1 Reading/Movie Essay, 2 Research Essays, & 4 HW (1 READING/MOVIE ESSAY AND 2 HW IS DUE WITHIN 48 HOURS!!)

Read the Syllabus for more information/instruction Reading/Movie Essay on District 9: English 1C—Mr. Jones For a sample paper, see Essay 3 (49-55) Paper #1—The Messages of District 9 (100 points) Assignment Write a nicely unified argument essay of at least 1000 words and at least three full pages of text (not counting the works cited), in which you analyze and interpret the ultimate racial message(s) in District 9. In other words, take a stand and craft a unique thesis on what the film is saying about race or ethnicity and whether the film is ultimately more racist than not, more racially sensitive than not, or totally ambivalent. The body of the paper needs to sustain the thesis and consistently argue it, with support from authorities (readings) and textual evidence (the film). If you argue multiple separate points, place a topic sentence at or near the start of each paragraph. However, avoid the “bullet point” essay that makes three separate points; try to argue one point deeply—but be sure to cue your readers carefully so they stay on track. For basic movie information, use my HW #1 cheat sheet and/or the film’s page at www.imdb.com. Layout, Structure, and Sources For information about MLA-style page layout, consult my Essay Format file on Blackboard. Passing papers will include three or more affirmative or mostly affirmative argument paragraphs and a substantial counterargument paragraph (I favor a “Big Mac” counterargument; see my Essay Basics handout and the Big Mac template on Blackboard). Passing papers will make good use of Michael Omi’s essay “In Living Color” and will quote him at least once in correct MLA style. Omi’s essay can appear in either an affirmative or counterargument paragraph. Strong papers should rely on at least one other assigned essay (or Newitz, which was optional): • Nell Minow’s “District 9—About Racism or Racist?” • Linda Seger’s “Creating the Myth,” since the classic hero myth tends to have a (likeable) white male protagonist. Cite page numbers from the textbook’s 8th edition; your page numbers must match mine. • Annalee Newitz’s “When Will White People Stop Making Movies Like Avatar?” (see BB) All papers must include a list of works cited. On Blackboard, I will supply entries for Omi, Seger, Minow, Newitz, and my own District 9 DVD. If you use other sources, please supply works-cited entries yourself. But remember that Paper #1 is not a research paper; it’s a basic paper built to use the readings provided. Works-Cited Entries for Paper #1 From Word, I am pasting in entries for five works; please note that you will need to reformat any entries you use, as well as enter your own access dates for online sources. Here is the entry for my own DVD of the film (I will let you use it even if you watched the movie online): District 9. Directed by Neill Blomkamp, performances by Sharlto Copley, David James, and Jason Cope, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, 2009. Here are entries for two Signs of Life articles: Seger, Linda. “Creating the Myth.” Signs of Life in the U.S.A.: Readings on Popular Culture for Writers, edited by Sonia Maasik and Jack Solomon, 8th ed., Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2015, pp. 334-42. Omi, Michael. “In Living Color.” Signs of Life in the U.S.A.: Readings on Popular Culture for Writers, edited by Sonia Maasik and Jack Solomon, 8th ed., Bedford/St. Martin’s, 2015, pp. 538-49. Here are entries for two online articles (I include the URL for one because it can be accessed only through the Wayback Machine): Minow, Nell [Movie Mom]. “District 9—About Racism or Racist?” Beliefnet, http://web.archive.org/web/20161031085216/http://www.beliefnet.com/columnists/moviemom/2009/08/district-9-about-racism-or.html.

Alice in wonderland movie review film studies essay
The film I choose to write a critical overview of is Alice in Wonderland (2010). The genres of the film have aspects that are excursion, action, adventure, comedy, fantasy, computer animation, kids, knowledge fiction and family. The original book written in 1865 by the English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson with the pseudonym Lewis Carroll consisted of a progression of haphazard dealings and figure connections. It was enjoyable to start to see the heroes in the movie were able to work together to attain an exceptional end result. Alice in the initial novel wanders around a dreamland that deals with her own apprehensions and her hazy expectation that incidents will never be all pleasant and trouble-free. All of these captivating characters, panoramas and experiences disseminate in a desire language.
Critically evaluate piaget's theory of cognitive development essay
Piaget has been described as the father of cognitive mindset (Shaffer, 1988) and his level theory while the foundation of developmental intellectual psychology (Lutz & Sternberg, 2002). It is not necessarily possible to spell out Piaget's scientific findings and theory in just 1, 500 words. Instead, I will in brief review the theory's range, comprehensiveness, parsimony, applicability, heuristic value and methodological supporting.I will then evaluate much more detail the theory's utility in describing and explaining cognitive creation. Historically, Piaget's ontological strategy was revolutionary with its concentrate on the qualitative nature of cognition as well as constructivist point of view. The theory by itself is wide-scoped (universal), thorough (covering a broad spectrum of cognitive achievement) and beatifully coherent (from neonate to adult). That remains in a big way influential in cognitive..
