Standing Homework

.

Upon viewing any class documentary film, students will always:

1)    Read the related transcript on the website. Save the PDF file to your computer and/or smart phone. (Bring one or the other to class, by the way.)

2)    Look up any unknown vocabulary. Consult with me during class or via email if you need clarification or help with any of these words, or with any aspect of grammar or language usage from the transcripts.

3)    Obtain the Worksheet questions for the part of the documentary we just watched. Print out the worksheet and complete by writing the answers to each question in longhand. Bring the completed worksheet to class and we’ll go over the answers. (If you’re absent and miss the video viewing, print out the appropriate Worksheet from the website and complete by using the transcript.) You’ll need to know this material for the tests, so make sure you get the answers. If you miss a class, review your answers with one of the other students who did attend, or talk to me before or after class and I’ll go over any questions you might have.

4)    Write comments on the documentary part we watched directly on the website in the “Leave a Reply” section under the correct transcript. Briefly write about your thoughts, reactions, and insights into the section of the DVD you viewed.

• What impressed you about what you saw?

• Did it affect your thoughts or views on the subject matter the filmmaker looked at?

• Do you have any strong feelings one way or another on any part of what you viewed? Discuss.

Length = AT LEAST 150 words.

DEADLINE: TUESDAY EVENING AT 11:59:59 PM. COMMENTS RECEIVED AFTER THE DEADLINE BUT BEFORE WEDNESDAY, 11:59:59 PM (i.e., WITHIN 24 HOURS OF THE DEADLINE), WILL ONLY RECEIVE HALF POINTS. COMMENTS RECEIVED AFTER THAT WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY POINTS WITHOUT A VALID EXCUSE (HOSPITALIZATION, DEATH IN THE FAMILY, ETC.) AND SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION. HOWEVER, ALL HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS MUST BE COMPLETED BY THE END OF THE TERM, EVEN IF SUBMITTED LATE, IN ORDER TO COMPLETE THE COURSE REQUIREMENTS AND RECEIVE A PASSING GRADE.

 

To leave a comment:

1) Go to “Categories”

HW1

2) Click on the documentary part you’re commenting on

HW2

3) Click on the title

HW3

4) Scroll to the bottom of the transcript and write your comment in the “Leave a Reply” section

NOTE: BE SURE TO WRITE YOUR FULL NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS (UNIVERSITY EMAIL ADDRESS OKAY). EACH NEW EMAIL ADDRESS MUST BE APPROVED, SO THE FIRST TIME YOU USE AN EMAIL ADDRESS YOU WILL SEE A MESSAGE “COMMENT AWAITING MODERATION,” AND YOUR COMMENT WILL NOT APPEAR UNTIL I APPROVE IT. AFTER THE FIRST TIME, HOWEVER, YOUR COMMENT WILL COME UP IMMEDIATELY (UNLESS YOU CHANGE EMAIL ADDRESS, IN WHICH CASE I HAVE TO APPROVE IT AGAIN).

 

NOTE WELL: HOMEWORK IS NOT OPTIONAL. FAILURE TO COMPLETE ALL REQUIRED HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS MEANS THAT:

That is all!
