Note: Between October 7th and November 8th, students in our Social Entrepreneurial program will be studying Film Appreciation as part of their Communications term. We’ll be using the blog to share online homework assignments with the students, as well as various resources that the students can use throughout the unit. The final project for the unit will ask each student to watch and analyze a film of their own choice from the AFI’s Top 100 Movies. Students will write a three-page analysis of the film, and then present their analysis to the class using a slide presentation.

All students should watch the following 8-minute YouTube video before coming to school on Friday, October 11th. The content of the video will set the foundation for our in-class discussions.
