Two reviews are required in this course: one of a novel and the second of a movie. I will propose a fiction work and a movie. However, you are encouraged to propose other movies, and other books that you believe are pertinent to our course. Once you propose them to me, I will gladly add this to this list, so that they are available to all other students.
Each review should be 4-6 pages, double space, 12 Times New Roman.
