Compose an essay, between 5-6 pages in length (about 1200-1500 words), which
presents an original argument about social, racial or identity issues present in
Your essay must include an academic summary of the movie and three core
articles and cited evidence from at least three of your assignment texts.
(Academic Summary of Anchor Text and Supplemental/Additional Sources.)
Your essay must also include your argument about the social, racial, or identity
issue you have chosen to cover. That means you need a thesis and topic
sentences, which state your
why. You also need
your argument in the form of cited material. You will be using PIE paragraph
structure as you did in previous essays.
Your argument should include at least one specific counter-argument (in
response to one of your claims/points), or point your opposition could
raise, to which you respond with a refutation. You support for the
counterargument can come from one the texts we cover for this essay or
from something you come up with on your own.
You must include a total of at least
direct quotes from at least three sources
for the essay. This may include quotes directly from the movie. Remember I have
posted the script for you to use.
Your essay needs to have a creative title.
If you include any key terms in your essay, you must spend time defining these
terms for your audience.
NOTE: Since you are citing the article, and possibly your own sources, donâ€™t
forget your Works Cited page.
