ARTIFACT I CHOSE IS THE MOVIE ‘AMERICAN HISTORY X’. PREVIOUS PAPERS FOR FINAL PAPERS ARE UPLOADING WHICH HELP YOU BE AWARE OF THE TOPIC OR WHAT THE FINAL PAPER WOULD BE ABOUT. Instruction:

Methodology Essay (INSTRUCTOR SUGGESTED THE PAPER WOULD BE GOOD IF YOU FOCUS ON WHY THE MOVIE CAME OUT THAT TIME. IF YOU CAN’T, THAT’S FINE THOUGH) 2-4 page paper double spaced on the theoretical or methodological approach that will be taken to the text. Select one or two theoretical approaches we have or will discuss in this course that you believe are especially germane to the text you have chosen. You will be using this theoretical groundwork as the starting point for your criticism of your text in your next paper.

order now 9

Make sure to explain and carefully cite the authors and theoretical arguments that are related to the theory you have chosen. Again, I expect you to do your homework on this one: include a bibliography that includes a review of relevant theoretical literature. These need to be academic sources that are relevant to rhetoric, speech, communication, etc¦

Start with an article or two that you think are germane to the sort of text you are using then chase cites. I expect this paper to make careful use of articles external to the course material which is below.
