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 = 100 – 150 words.

Deadline: Tuesday evening, 11:59:59 PM. COMMENTS RECEIVED UP UNTIL WEDNESDAY, 11:59:59 PM, WILL RECEIVE ONLY HALF CREDIT. COMMENTS RECEIVED AFTER THAT WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED WITHOUT A VALID EXCUSE (HOSPITALIZATION, DEATH IN THE FAMILY, ETC.) AND SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION.
