I have not watched that movie in class. We have read the following, Punishment, Separate Ways, This way to the gas, Ladies and Gentlemen, Maytriona’s Home, A very old man with enormous wings: A Children’s Tale, and watched Under the same moon and Joyeux Noel, Merry Christmas.
I have a Making Connections Project due with one of these and I can’t come up with any ideas.
These are the instructions: I am only looking for ideas to base my paper on, help me make a connections with something….
Select one of the readings or films from the course outline and a theme, issue, or concept from it. For example, if you are intrigued by “Punishment,” you might work with the issue of “women’s rights at the turn-of-the-century.” If you find “Yellow Woman” thought-provoking, you might explore an idea related to Native American culture. Please Note: You may use one, and only one, reading from the course outline or course materials in this project. The other four artifacts you use must be a result of creative and critical thinking and of searching and researching. You may not select a theme and use all five examples of the theme from the course materials.
Next, search for a work of literature, art, music, and film (one of each!) which relates/connects to your chosen work from the course and illustrates/connects to your theme, issue, or concept. Again, these four artifacts should not come from the course materials, but should be ones that have resulted from your creative and thoughtful search. The work of literature must be a story/novel/play/poem that you have read on your own or that you plan to read during the research phase of this project; the section about literature cannot be a summary of a Wikipedia entry or a similar source. If you need help finding a literary text that relates to your chosen course work and theme, you may want to research works of literature on Project Gutenberg or Literature Network. Likewise, you must view the film you decide to report about. Search academic websites, museum websites, and other legitimate sources for works of art. Do not get your artifacts from Google Images, Facebook, personal blogs, and such. Your four research items should not come from the course materials, but from your creative and thoughtful search. Again, this is a research project, although not a traditional research paper.
Assemble your five items (course work + lit + art + music + film) in a Word document.Post your project to Safe Assign for grading AND to the Making Connections Discussion Forum to share with your classmates at the end of Week 5 by Sunday at 11:59 pm. Post your Word document to Safe Assign, but if you prefer, you may convert your project to a web page, a blog, or a PowerPoint in order to include film clips and other media when you present your project to your classmates. PLEASE NOTE: Safe Assign will not accept PowerPoints, unless they are converted to pdfs
