Intervention Film Assignment

Final Assignment

Intervention Film Assignment

30% of the final grade,

For your final assignment you will watch one of the following films: For Akheem (film 1), A Dangerous Son (film 2), The Miseducation of Cameron Post (film 3). The films are available through the Carleton library in the Kanopy database and will appear in ARES.  Students will be randomly assigned to a film; they may not choose the film themselves.

To determine to which film you have been assigned, do the following: from within our cuLearn course click Participants – found in the top left corner. If you do not see this you may need to click on the icon with three horizontal lines in the top left corner to reveal the menu bar on the left-hand side of the screen. Next, find your name (filter using the first letter of first and/or last name if you’d like). Finally, under “Groups” (third column) you will see either Final Assignment Film 1, Final Assignment Film 2, or Final Assignment Film 3. If you have tried this and cannot determine which group you are in, please email me or a TA.

Students will choose, from a provided list of key children/youth in the film, ONE person/character, and discuss how they would approach working with that person, answering the questions detailed below. The options of people/characters are the following: Film 1, For Ahkeem: Daje Shelton or Antonio Shumpert; Film 2, A Dangerous Son: Ethan, Vontae, or William; Film 3, The Miseducation of Cameron Post: Cameron Post, Jade, Adam, or Mark.

Your paper should be approximately 6 double-spaced pages in length and should include proper APA citation to course material and any external resources used. The paper should include citations to 3 scholarly resources outside of the course material as well as reference 3 items from the course material.

Please copy and paste each of the six bolded headers below into your paper. Please do not alter the order in which they appear.  An introduction and conclusion are not necessary.
