The format for these essays will be as follows:
– Write an introduction that engages the readers, provides background information about the film, frames it as a film worthy of an analysis of conflict communication, and offers a solid thesis statement about the films relevance to conflict communication. This introduction should be no more than one or two paragraphs.
– The next paragraph should summarize a specific scene in the film and a theory, concept, or idea that either explains the conflict communication issues in the scene or potentially could resolve them. One paragraph of a scene summary and 2-3 paragraphs of analysis that follow are expected.
– The above step should be repeated at least two more times but for a different scene but with the same theory, concept, or idea.
– Write a conclusion that re-engages readers, restates your main points, and offers some actual conclusions and recommendations for moving forward.
