Book/movie review on The hunting ground

Movie reaction paper

You will be asked to rent/buy/borrow one of the following movies: North Country (sexual harassment), Crash (racism), or The Hunting Ground (rape on a college campus), and write a reaction paper.

This paper should incorporate concepts and knowledge gleaned from the book and what you have learned in the class.

Keep in mind that I’ve seen these movies and don’t want a full review of the movie, but would like you to react to what you’ve seen and told me why it would be appropriate for this class and the chapter.

Contact me if you are unable to access these two movies or if you have a different movie that you think would work for the class (you must get permission to use a movie other than those listed).

Your grade for this project will be calculated as follows:

  1. A brief overview of the movie – ½ page. (10 points) – IN YOUR OWN WORDS!
  2. Relate the movie to the literature from the text – a minimum of 1 page (15 points)
    • For example, what does the literature say about sexual harassment/racism?
    • What are some of the key terms (be specific, cite chapters/page numbers/definitions)?
  3. Give your personal reaction to the movie – a minimum of 1 page (15 points)
  4. Clear, concise language, good use of grammar and spelling, and APA style format. (10 points)

Your paper should be typed using Microsoft Word and abide by the following formatting guidelines:

  • Times New Roman, 12 point font
  • 1″ margins
  • Double spaced (no extra headings/spaces in between paragraphs/etc.)
