Film review assignment
Please respond to the following question in traditional essay format:
In what ways does Bobby succeed or fail in presenting a valid reconstruction of the 1960s?
Your introduction should include a clear, definitive argument. The essential task of this assignment is to take a single position and support it with evidence. Please be mindful not to support both sides of the question. Your introduction should also include the scope of the film. This includes the film’s subject matter, geographical location, time period, and larger ideas.
Two body paragraphs should support the argument in your introduction. They should feature ideas independent of one another, and they must include two textbook citations. — Each body paragraph must include two citations from the primary course textbook (American Promise). — Submissions without textual citations will receive points deductions. See the syllabus update in Blackboard for proper citation format. In short writing assignments, you are encouraged to keep quoted/paraphrased material at a minimum. Quoted material should never outweigh YOUR voice.
Your assignment must be typed and double-spaced. Times New Roman 12-point font is recommended. NO COVER PAGE or title should be used. After typing your name on line 1, please begin typing your essay on the next double-spaced line. Course information, date, and other line entries that simply take up space should NOT be included. Length should be 2-3 pages.
Finally, while there is a ton of information about the film and the historical period to be found online, PLEASE STAY OFF THE INTERNET. If any part of your essay, no matter how small, can be definitively traced to an internet site(s), you will receive a zero.
Your work must be uploaded by Wednesday, April 25, 2:00PM (73057 students) or Thursday, April 26, 12:30PM (73010 students). Late work will not be accepted.
