Part I: Term Paper Outline & Article Summary – 5% of Final Grade
- Step 1: Identify a newspaper or magazine article on the area of interest (i.e., racial
profiling). The article can be from either the United States or Canada. In addition, the
story needs to be substantive, which means that it must be a headline article in the
media source (either national or local). This is necessary because the story must be
long enough to contain several aspects of the area of interest that you may decide to
focus on in your final paper.
- Step 2: Read the article and identify the focal area and several of sub-issues that are of
interest to you. I advise using a highlighter for this part of the assignment.
- Step 3: Identify 3 academic sources that discuss the specific aspects of your chosen
focal area. For this step you must locate 2 primary academic sources (i.e., sources
where a researcher has conducted academic research) and 1 secondary source (i.e., a
book or a literature review) that is not a course textbook.
- Step 5: Now you are prepared to complete the media article summary and outline.
This part of the paper is comprised of:
- A one paragraph summary of the newspaper/magazine article.
- An outline of the remainder of your paper that demonstrates your understanding of
- A copy of the magazine or newspaper article.
- A copy of the abstract of each article you identified and a copy of the table of
contents of the book. If you identified an academic literature review instead of a book
you can instead provide a copy of the first page.
scene, you can hear Estella bragging about her home and the expensive qualities and decorations in her home. She talks about the interior decorative details from foreign places and how exquisite everything in her home was. She also begins to talk to him in French and obviously Finn is not as culturally inclined to understand French. She also brings up the fact that she has a gardener working at her house doing all of the outdoor work. Finn comes from a family where they do not have money to just waste on a gardener. This shows how she talks without regard to others, and she doesn’t take into account the fact that Finn probably does not understand what she is saying, nor can he relate to things like having people working in the home. She is in her own little privileged world, and does not understand that not everyone is as privileged as she is. Estella also talks to Finn as if she is talking down to him. She does not talk to him with the same regard that she might regard other wealthy individuals with. The last, and most important, cinematic element that was prevalent throughout the movie and this scene sequence is the color green. The color green is such a prominent color in symbolizing wealth, as money is green. In this sequence Miss Dinsmoor is dressed in green head to toe, symbolizing her excessive wealth. Estella is also seen wearing a green skirt. Throughout this scene sequence you can see how the underlying colors can bring to the surface these themes throughout the movie. Money motivates everything that goes on in this movie, and to make it more prominent the directors work to make it obvious that all the characters are wearing green and that the scenes are constantly focused on the color green. In conclusion, these cinematic elements within the film adaptation of Great Expectations reveal many underlying rhetorical meanings. Until being asked to recognize the cinematic elements of the movie, one would not have recognized them, nor would they have been as prevalent. There were 4 important thematic and cinematic elements that bring forth the theme of wealth in the movie: the actor placement, the camera angles, the dialogue, and the color green.>GET ANSWER
