Book/Movie Report on Grief

 

Description: This assignment is designed to help students incorporate knowledge acquired in the course thus far to be reflected in a book or movie report with content involving loss. You may choose to write your report on either a book or movie of your choosing that features any type of loss. I have included a list of books and a list of movies as suggestions for you to choose from under the Course Information tab. Feel free to choose from the lists, or you may also choose a book or movie on your own. These are only suggestions to give you an idea of what is appropriate for this assignment. Please note that the suggestions provided may have content that you are not comfortable viewing or reading. It is your responsibility to have discretion as to what you expose yourself to for this assignment. The report should be at least 3 pages not including your title or reference pages. No abstract page is necessary. You may go over three pages, but be sure the content is pertinent. Content should be all inclusive according to the grading rubric. The paper must be in APA format and specifically reference either the book or movie on which it is based in addition to any other references you utilize to write the paper. Please note, this paper is NOT about summarizing the film. It is about exploring the concept of loss within the movie. If the majority of your paper is a summary of the film, you will not achieve success for this assignment.
