Product Description
The following is an assignment/project in which Sociology students are instructed to re-write a Disney/Pixar movie by assigning a main character various acts of deviant behavior and then creating a "Case Study Character Analysis". I call it "Deviant Disney".
This project is both creative and imaginative and allows Sociology students to apply acts of Social and Criminal Deviance as well as Theories of Deviance in a way in which students enjoy.
The story requirements ask students to assign a character two acts of Social and two acts of Criminal Deviance. Based on the acts chosen the Disney/Pixar story is to be re-written. I always tell the students their story is going to turn a wholesome and cute Disney/Pixar movie into a dark and deviant one. They really get into the story they write.
Next, students are instructed to create a "Case Study Character Analysis". On an 8 x 10 sheet of paper they draw and illustrate their character. Their character is to be re-drawn to reflect the deviant behavior and story they just wrote. Example: Buzz Lightyear's wing and visor are broken and his hand is bleeding from deviant acts committed in the story I re-wrote. Then, around the illustration, students cite, categorize, and describe their acts of deviance added to their story. Next they define Deviance. Lastly, they choose one act of deviance and describe it from one of the four theories of deviance (Strain Theory, Social Control Theory, Differential Association Theory, or Labeling Theory).
Included is a grading rubric. Overall students really get into this activity and enjoy themselves.
