Analysis of the Film Children of Heaven
NO SUMMARY of the film is needed (or wanted). We want your analysis of the film on issues relating to planning, design, environment, culture, and/or society. Be sure to write a very succinct paper with intro, body, and conclusion. Spend time checking grammar, punctuation, run-on sentences, incomplete sentences, and spelling (see writing guidelines document in. Here`s a paper structure hint that you may find helpful: 1. Think of a position on a major issue you would like to analyze for the movie. 2. Think of 2-4 statements that support your position. 3. In your intro paragraph, clearly state your position (identified in #1) and briefly mention your supporting statements (#2). 4. Each paragraph after your intro should be dedicated to explaining ONE of your supporting statements. Use specific examples from the movie to provide further support and evidence. 5. Write a concluding paragraph that essentially wraps up your position, and ideally provides sheds sort of new light based on the arguments provided in the body of the paper. DO: • WRITE a paper with a clear structure, that has an introduction, body and conclusion. • THINK critically about the issues portrayed in the movies and read the supporting articles on Blackboard to get a better grip on issues. • CHECK the guidelines and the example papers posted on Blackboard`s Course Information tab to have a better idea of what a good paper looks like. • CITE your sources if you chose to use other information - Otherwise it will be considered as plagiarism • BECOME FAMILIAR with the term "Urban Planning" if you need to. • USE proper language, grammar and punctuation, if you are unsure about your writing skills use the resources available at ASU, such as the Writing Center. • PROOF-READ and use spell check. • CONTACT us with any questions or concerns. DON`T: • DON`T use 1st person or statements that refer to your personal opinion, for example: "I think", "I believe", "I noticed", "In my opinion", etc. This is an analysis paper of issues portrayed in the films, NOT your personal opinion of the movie • DON`T use 2nd person statements, for example: "YOU have to", "When YOU see..." or anything containing the word "YOU" / "YOUR". These kind of statements make your papers sound informal and less than academic. • DON`T summarize the films, we`ve all seen them, get straight to the issues analysis part. • DON`T review the films, that is not the purpose of the paper. • DON`T use contractions (he`s, it`s, didn`t, etc.) Spell it out (he is, it is, did not, etc) • DON`T stretch your papers with unusual letter fonts, spacing or plain rambling. We will discount points for any of these things
