Blackboard Post Assignment
The Blackboard posts are an opportunity for you to reflect on the readings and films either before we discuss them in class or after. A post should be about one page in length (250 words), and because of its brevity, you should not concern yourself with writing an introduction or conclusion. Instead, focus on making a particular point or observation about a course text and reflecting upon or supporting that point. If you would like, your post may also be a response to a classmate’s post. Blackboard posts may lead to paper topics, so really use the opportunity to explore your ideas. The following is a list of possible topics for posts, however the list is not exhaustive. Please feel free to write about whatever interests you:
§ How does a director adapt a story into a film?
§ Why does a particular text have the ending it does?
§ Choose and image or idea that you are unsure of in a text and begin to work out its meaning.
§ Do you see any traits of a particular director starting to emerge?
§ What is the role of a character in one of the texts?
§ How does a specific scene/shot fit into the film as a whole?
§ How can you relate the historical context to the text?
§ What is the ideology presented by a text?
I suggest writing your posts in Microsoft Word then copying it and pasting it to the Discussion Board. This way you will be able to gauge the length of your post and have access to spell check.
