Students will choose two films that portray a particular time period, event, or person in American history. Students will write a three to four page paper that provides a brief summary of each film, followed by a compare and contrast of how each film depicts its subject matter. Papers should be no less than three full pages and no more than four pages in length, typed in Times New Roman size 12 type, double-spaced, and written in the student’s own words. No plagiarism allowed. Students may choose a film that is not listed below, but the film must fit within the context of American history and be approved by the teacher prior to submitting the review.
