Write and submit via the online text box (no attachments) an essay of 1000+ words wherein you decide the fate of the Western world, or Western reality, as it were. Be sure to proofread for spelling/grammar/typos, etc.
Decision #1: All is lost or all is found? Something less polarized? Something between unbridled optimism on the one hand, and the downward spiral of nihilism on the other? Decide.
The plural bases of your written judgment are the texts (e.g. print, aural, visual, etc.) we have reviewed to date, and your lived experience in the Western world. Reason your way from what you have read, seen and experienced toward a decisive conclusion for this assignment.
Decision #2: You must answer the question: What does the Western world become, given what it is, and what it has been? Evaluate, analyze and profile it in this assignment of formal expository prose.
The challenge is to call upon references from our assigned source texts to substantiate or at least, in part, help to substantiate your creative exposition.
You must engage and cite (i.e. in the style of MLA, APA, etc.) one dozen sources in the body of your essay: six from the Syllabus reading schedule (i.e. weeks 1-3) and six from the Research link. When in doubt: quote, analyze, reflect and discuss. Such a strategy will help to keep you on task for an assignment of this kind.
Valid sources are to be found only in the Research and Syllabus links. You may introduce other sources, but not at the expense of assigned sources, meaning anything you introduce would only add to the 12 assigned sources, but not replace them in any way.

An English teacher in a two-year technical college has several students in his composition course whose ignorance of the English language has proved invincible. He has given them extra work and extra counseling from the first week of the semester. They have been diligent in their efforts to improve. Though they are in a construction technology program and will undoubtedly be employed in jobs that require little writing skill, the composition course is required for graduation. In the instructor’s judgment, the students would not be able to pass the course legitimately if they took it three times, so he raises their F grades to Ds.
Please go in-depth, on the parties at stake, the moral issue, etc. I am begging you to read the directions in the screen shot.

1.
Casablanca
Joseph Campbell identified and named the Hero’s Journey: a journey of character, aka the character arc, in which Richard Blaine begins as the holdfast (“I’m miserable and nobody and nothing’s going to make me feel better or change my ways” — not an exact quote, but a valid description of his character at the beginning of the film I think; remember, we first see him playing chess with himself) and ends by coming back to his true self: a patriot and hero, moving forward with his life.
NOTE — I’m using both definitions of the word “character” here — one definition is someone in a film, play, novel or poem (Richard Blaine, for example). The other is the persona, the mental, moral and personal qualities of an individual (what does Richard Blaine believe, who is he, what inside him makes him do what he does?).
Two of the major elements in Rick’s journey are Ilsa’s revelations that she was married to Victor Laslo before she knew Rick in Paris, and that she abandoned Rick in Paris to go to her sick husband while knowing that if she told Rick why she was staying he’d stay too, be imprisoned in a Nazi German concentration camp, and probably end up dead. These all hearken to the theme of female purity as the basis of love –in other words, Ilsa was truly a good (pure) woman, doing the best she could under difficult circumstances, being a dutiful wife to her husband and protecting the man she loved.
So let’s talk about female purity as the basis of love. Here are a few questions to get your started (answer as few or as many of these as you like — they are just meant to be starting points for discussion):
Do you see a link between the Madonna/Whore complex (a woman is either a whore or a Madonna/mother/saintly figure –NOT the singer/actress Madonna) and the idea of female purity as a basis for love?
Where do you think the concept of female purity as the basis for love comes from? In other words, the idea that only a “pure” woman is worthy of love and marriage? Historically, culturally, religiously?
Why do you think Ilsa’s revelations change Rick’s idea of her, and therefore his unhappiness at his love for her?
How do Ilsa’s revelations allow them both to move forward from the spot they’re stuck in? He, miserable and maintaining a very thick wall against emotional involvement of any kind? She, stuck in a marriage with a man she admits to admire, but never says she loves; a “great and courageous man” to whom she is life and purpose?
I think that’s enough to get us started.
Directions: Your post must be well thought out and have some substance to it. Use examples/evidence to back up your statements. Include details from the films (scenes, dialogue). It must be at least a paragraph of at least six complete sentences. I prefer that your use the course materials and your own knowledge in your answer. However, if you do quote or paraphrase from non-course research sources, you must acknowledge those sources, MLA style

Citizen Kane
Watch the film, and read the chapter. I also recommend reading the screenplay.
Answer the following questions.
A. Citizen Kane is a masterful example of Formalism, where the director shapes the film to emphasize and strengthen his/her exploration of a theme. One of the themes Orson Welles explores in Citizen Kane is that of fragmentation (no-one can truly know someone else completely, as well as the idea of fragmentation of character). How does the non-linear and subjective narrative work to explore the theme of fragmentation?B. Citizen Kane is considered to be one of the greatest films ever made. Do you agree? Why? Why not?
C. The last word Kane utters is “rosebud.” He says this, and drops the snow globe he is holding, which rolls down the stairs next to his bed, and then breaks. We find out, at the very end of the film, what “rosebud” meant — it was his childhood sled. But what about that snow globe? How does that snow globe tie in with his childhood? Where does it first appear chronologically in Kane’s life? Why do you think he is holding it as he is dying? What does it mean that as he dropped, it broke?
Directions:
Write at least one paragraph for each of at least five sentences. Use specifics from the film (scenes, dialogue, etc.) and the names of the characters, actors, and director.
Your post must be well thought out and have some substance to it. Use examples/evidence to back up your statements. Include details from the films (scenes, dialogue). It must be at least a paragraph for each or at least six complete sentences.

The Scarlet Clue
Watch the film, and read the lecture.
It deals with two of the major things (racism and gender). A triple-whammy, actually, because we even get to discuss Yellowface (Asian characters on screen, played by white/Caucasian actors).
Choose ONE of the following questions to answer:
A. What did you think of Mantan Moreland’s performance as Birmingham Brown? How does his performance in this role exemplify negative racist stereotypes in the United States in the 1940’s (and before, and since, and still)?OR
B. What did you think of Sidney Toler as Charlie Chan? How does his performance exemplify the American and European (white) attitude and negative assumptions and stereotypes about Asians (non-white) as portrayed on film?
OR
C. How does the role of Mrs. Marsh (the harsh, mean [okay, bitchy] business woman) exemplify the negative attitudes and stereotypes about women in business in the United States in the 1940’s? What does the role say about the expectations for women then? Is it any different today?
Directions:
Write at least one paragraph, of at least six sentences. Use specifics from the film (scenes, dialogue, etc.). Use the names of the characters, actors, director, etc.
Your post must be well thought out, and have some substance to it. Use examples/evidence to back up your statements. Include details from the films (scenes, dialogue). It must be at least a paragraph, of at least six complete sentences for each question. I encourage you to include your own thoughts and ideas on the films.

Early Short Films
Read the Early Films chapter (I’ve included the first chapter from the textbook, in case you don’t have the textbook yet) read the History of Motion Pictures (specific pages mentioned in syllabus), and watch the three early short, silent, black and white films (A Train Arriving at La Ciotat, A Voyage to the Moon, the Immigrant). You will find these films (and the readings) in the module for Week 1. Do a journal entry by answering all the questions below:
A Train Arriving at La Ciotat:
We will examine this film as a historical document — in other words, what it tells us about the people, place and the time in which it was made (rural France, in the 1890s).
1: What do you notice about the race, gender and class of the individuals using the train and in the train station, and what conclusions can you draw from your observations?
Voyage Dans La Lune (A Voyage to the Moon):
We are analyzing this film also as a historical document, and for the contextual attitudes and assumptions we can discover underlying the story of the film.
2: What do you notice about the race, gender and class of the scientist/astronauts, and the other characters in the film, and what conclusions do you draw from your observations?
the Immigrant
We are also analyzing this film as a historical document.
3: The main character in this film, Charles Chaplin’s comedic character, the Little Tramp, was wildly popular at the time. Starting with what you see in this film, make conclusions about what you think accounts for the general popularity of the Little Tramp.
Directions:
Answer each question, with at least a paragraph, of at least six sentences, in separate paragraphs, numbered according to the questions.
Your post must be well thought out and have some substance to it. Use examples/evidence to back up your statements, including details from the films (scenes, dialogue, etc.).
I prefer that your use the course materials and your own knowledge in your answer. You are encouraged to add any other observations or comments about all the early films we watched. 5.
Casablanca is referred to as a genre-bender: in other words, it is possible to fit it into a number of different genres (buddy movie, fairy tale, love story, war movie).
In your opinion, which genre best fits the film, and why?
Write at least one paragprah, of at least five full sentences, using specific examples (scenes, dialogue) from the film to support your choice of genre.
In this question, it is okay to use first person (“I”).
Give answer for the following:
