In a presentation of roughly three minutes, present to the class an article you find interesting convincing (that is, it must form an argument).
- Focus your presentation on why the article’s argument is convincing.
- Provide copies of the article for all of us (15).
- Use the whole three minutes.
For this assignment, choose a favorite film scene that is no more than 5 minutes long.
After showing the scene (I’ll have a laptop set up; just remember how to find the clip online), you will tell the class why you think this it is especially good.
Points to discuss:
- What are the factors that combine to make it an effective scene?
- Is the language powerful? Explain.
- Is the atmosphere important? Explain.
Please note: No songs, and no cartoons.
