APUSH Film Festival continues. . .

Film reviews for C.S.A. and King of the Hill are due on Friday at Turnitin.com.  Answer the following questions:

  • What was the purpose of the film?
  • How well was the purpose achieved?
  • To what audience(s) would you recommend this film?

You will want to include examples from the films to illustrate your points.  Not more than 750 words, but probably not less than 400 words will be necessary to adequately address these questions.

All w.i.p.s, missing DBQs, quiz re-takes will need to be done by this Friday!

Watch Summer of Love on The American Experience, airing at 8:00 p.m. tonight, Monday, April 23 on PBS (Channel 11 on Time-Warner Cable). Respond to the following:

A dream fulfilled, or forgotten?
In a famous story by Washington Irving, a man named Rip Van Winkle falls asleep for 20 years and awakes to a very different world. Imagine that one of the participants in the Summer of Love fell asleep that summer and didn’t awake until 2007; what would he or she think of life in the United States today? Have the hopes and ideals of that summer been fulfilled, or is it as though the Summer of Love never happened? Write a short essay this “Rip Van Hippie” might have written for a local newspaper describing what has, and what has not, changed since 1967.

  • You may respond as a comment to this blog entry (comments will not appear until Friday) or in writing.
  • All responses must be received by 3:00 p.m. Friday, April 27.
