Movie report: write a report about an Australian movie. The movie must be about Australia (not just filmed there).
See a list of movies that students reported about in the spring semester here
You will read your report aloud to the class (same as in the first semester).
Your report should include some research about the movie, e.g. about the history or area of Australia which the movie is about, also critical reviews or interesting reviews by people on Amazon.
Your report must show me (the instructor) that
you have seen the movie (not just copied your friend’s notes)
you have understood the key points of the movie
you have thought about the movie (is it good? is it useful to learn about Australia?), i.e. you have an opinion about it
you can express your opinion in English
you can use the MLA style for references.
Your report MUST INCLUDE the following information:
movie title (in both English and Japanese)
movie director’s name and the names of the main actors and actresses and the characters they play
date the movie was made
the company that made and distributed the movie
a summary of the story (key points only)
This information MUST BE WRITTEN USING MLA STYLE (see the handout from session #3)
Your handout should include the title of the movie and other key information, and some brief notes and pictures that will make your presentation more interesting. (The information in the handout does not have to be in complete sentences.)
Write a 50-word summary of Diddakoi AND a 50-word response. If you did not finish in class, email it to me before next Thursday, June 4th: marc.sheffnerアットマークgmail.com. INCLUDE YOUR NAME in your email.
Find a map of the UK and print it out or photocopy it.
On the map mark the following:
Where and when was Diddakoi author Rumer Godden born? Where and when did she die?
