This argumentative/analytical unit requires students to view a classic Disney film, then respond to a prompt addressing the current ratings rationale for a film as many as 70 years old. These films--Dumbo, Peter Pan, and Pinocchio--contain alcohol, tobacco, and drug references; gender biases; strong language; violence; racism; and more. The download includes a 2-page overview of the argumentative essay prompt itself, explanation of the Motion Picture Association of America's current rating system and designations, and style/citation requirements for the paper itself; a 2-page handout modeling proper MLA essay style and formatting; and a 1-page teacher evaluation form for summative assessment of final drafts.
