You will write a movie review on the film of your choice relevant to the topics and time period of the course (pre- colonization to 1877). Guidelines for this assignment as well as a sample are available on Canvas. This is the major writing assignment for the course, and it is worth approximately 1/4 of your grade, therefore it should be taken seriously.
To write a movie review paper based on a movie that tells the story of the real American colonial period, it should be a historical movie rather than an action or comedy. If you have any questions, you are welcome to ask me. Please look carefully at the guideline and sample movie review paper.
