I attached you the syllabus and the reading that the professor atattched in canvas

- Movie Response Paper
Instructions – see syllabus for more details
For each movie that you watch, you will need to
type up a two-page (no shorter) paper that covers the sections below in
papers are not summaries of the movie, but they are designed to provide
evidence that you really watched them and
thought about what you were watching.
In your reflection you should show your critical
thinking, as well as research and writing skills (go beyond what the professor
provides/assigns). These are not book reports, they should be college level
A) What I “learned” from the movie
(reflection, not a summary):
was surprised to see this…
was interesting to see this dynamic…
B) Questions I had while watching the film:
be in bullet points – just try to explain what happened in the movie to make
you have this question (this character did this/said this, etc…)

after you did the 4 movies the teacher gave us discussion board about the movies that you watche so you should answer this question in one long paragraph and here is the instructors from the teacher:
- Discussion boards
Each unit will have a discussion board about the movies being watched in that unit. Students will be expected to contribute their thoughts and reflections with the professor and their classmates. The professor will offer questions on the discussion boards, but they will mostly be student driven about the topics being watched and written about that week. Students will be graded for the following:
- Provide at least two (2) original posts or beginning of a thread
- Respond at least twice (2) to a classmates post or thread
- The quality of the post will be graded. It should not just say, I agree or disagree or something simple like that.
- The civility of the posts – make sure to be polite and courteous to your classmates and their thoughts and opinions
here is the question:
you just need to answer this question for now:
QUESTION #1 (if you watched any of the movies on presidential primaries Primary Colors or the War Room)
What do you think of the US presidential election process? Do you think it is fair or democratic? You can use the 2016 election as an example. What changes would you make to the primary or general election process? (no right or wrong answers here and you don’t have to have watched those movies to contribute to this thread).
The 2018 midterms are quickly approaching. Feel free to comment on that process as well. California has a very different selection process…do some research and reading!
