    Prof. Masiello

    Please read the documents dated 11/09 in the Files folder. Annotate and highlight them.

    Then, if you have any questions, you may post them here in the Discussion folder or you may email me.

    Posting would be good because then others can see my replies and many students will have the same concerns or questions.


    Jaheim Wilson

    1) Can you break down how many sources are exactly required? Can you tell me how many reviews I need from the book and movie? Should I have some text evidence from the book?

    2) Is there a specific format you want in our research paper? LIke double spaced? Or make the font size 12?

    Excellent questions!
    Yes, Jaheim, in the syllabus I mention that we are using MLS style and a 12-pt font with double spacing.

    Yes, you are supposed to have internal quotes from every source: the novel, the film, and six critical reviews by six different professional critics, one quote each (minimum). These reviews are considered secondary sources.

    Ideally, there would be 3 reviews on the book and 3 reviews on the film version. It could be 2 on the book and 4 on the movie since film reviews are more readily accessible.



    1) is their list of books where we have to choose from or do we just find our own

    It is in the syllabus, but I have copied and pasted that list here:

    You are looking for similarities and differences. Also, why were changes made from book to film?



    I don’t have many questions right now but maybe later in the future but how much time do we have to complete the research paper?

    Matthew, the research paper should be submitted approximately a week before the last class meeting on our college calendar.
