NOTE: This assignment is optional and will not affect your grade if you choose not to complete it. Additionally, late work will not be accepted for this assignment so please keep this in mind.
Directions: View one of the movies listed below and submit a 2-page double-spaced reflection (use the reflection paper rubric as a guide, no citations are necessary) in attempt to earn extra credit points. Please demonstrate critical thinking (i.e. use your social oppression matrix) about the film as opposed to providing a summary of the movie (I do not want a synopsis/summary of the film, but I should know that you watched the entire film). Points will not be awarded if it is clear you did not watch the movie or are not critically applying the content of the movie to course content. The paper will be worth 10 extra credit points and should be submitted on Canvas by Friday, December 15, 2017 before 11:59 p.m. Extra credit will only be granted for viewing one movie and submitting one reflection. If you have already seen one of these films, I want you to view one you have not yet seen.
