Another way in which cultures tend to express themselves is through art, whether that be music, painting, or acting, among other forms. In American culture, movies and television play a significant role in the lives of individuals and families, and these movies and television shows oftentimes become a commentary on differences between groups of people. For this activity, each student will identify a movie that has a racial/ethnic or other minority issue as a MAJOR theme in the movie. A good example of a movie with racial/ethnic issues as a major theme might be Monster’s Ball (2001; Billy Bob Thornton, Halle Berry) whereas a bad example might be Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989). NOTE: Consider using the Internet Movie Database (http://www.imdb.com/) if you are having trouble identifying a movie. The student will watch the movie, dissect the movie based on constructs relevant to the course and then provide a review of the movie using topics and terms from the class in identifying where the movie accurately portrayed the issue(s) and where the movie was inaccurate in presenting the salient issues. The resulting movie review should be no longer than 6 pages in length (double-spaced in 12 point font maximum) and no shorter than 3 pages in length. Standard APA format it required. Plagiarism free.
