Extra Credit Case Study Option

Extra Credit Film / Lecture Review Option
As mentioned in the "Note on Videos and Visual Anthropology" one of the four main characteristics of American Anthropology is fieldwork, and the next best thing to hopping a bus or plane is going to places and viewing subjects by film.
Although in Culture and Personality we view a number of videos, in the area of Culture and Personality many hundreds of quality films exist—including feature films, documentaries, "shorts," interesting YouTube vignettes.
For the Film / Lecture Review Option choose an approved (by your instructor) feature-length film or a documentary that is not assigned in class and review it, as you might for a column in your college newspaper.
Recommended "Optional" and "Supplementary" videos are listed on your Moodle page "Topic Presentations" sections. This same information is also available for the semester on the "Video Schedule" page.
Check with your instructor for feature-length films and major documentaries (that qualify for Extra Credit).
See also the information on reviewing films.
Qualifying public lectures will be announced as opportunities arise. The public lectures extra credit option could include approved lectures available on-line from Open University type lectures availble from some universities.
See, for e.g. . . .
Extra credit Film / Lecture Reviews can receive up to 30 points (about 1.5 % of final grade*) -- if they
are turned in on time.
A-grade papers receive up to 28 - 30 points
(*percentages will vary a little bit depending on the final number of Forum topics for the term)
