Today, we are discussing The Truman Show. Keep in mind the purposes for which we watched this film: working on our reading of visual text & practicing that reading strategy of synthesizing information to draw bigger picture conclusions.
Accordingly, in addition to questions about content, consider questions and ideas that connect these texts as well as get use thinking about director choices; remember that directors, just like authors, make the choices they do for a reason. Think about the small pieces in addition to bigger picture ideas.
As a reminder, to earn full credit for discussion, here are some qualities I'm looking for in your posts and questions:
1. Demonstration of understanding and critical thinking about the text(s)
2. Well-written, proofread writing.
3. Developed ideas that make it clear why you think what you do, supporting your thinking with evidence from the text.
4. Participation throughout the course of discussion, give or take 5 minutes or so.
