Take-home Film Analysis


After Reading the film script of the documentary in the attachment, put on your “Educational Psychology” hat, and write a response to each of the items below. Please type your answers and number each question.

Your responses should provide a viewpoint that is informed by the course material—that is, the goal is to practice what you have learned by applying it to a real life example. You may use material from any and all of the class. Don’t worry about what other students write; there are likely to be many possible good answers to each response. A weak response will simply describe relevant examples from the documentary.

A strong response, however, describes relevant examples and explains why those examples are effective using psychological theories and concepts. The length of the responses may vary greatly, but I would hope that you would not need to write more than 750 words.

Upload your answers into Blackboard before the due date.
