- (P#1) Venture #1 includes a short descriptive incident report
on a video program viewed in class. Focus on descriptive writing.
- This case concerns a social situation with which you are hopefully
unfamiliar. We have selected an incident unknown to most because we
want everyone in class to write from a common (i.e., shared), yet unfamiliar,
- We will watch a video of an unusual social situation with which
you are probably unfamiliar. So that you can better focus on "pure"
description, we will probably watch the video with the sound off.
- During the video take notes on what you see.
- As soon as possible after you have taken any notes, sit
down and expand on your notes. (If you are working on an interview
rather than looking at video -- cf., for e.g., Project #2 -- go somewhere close
by immediately after the interview and write up your notes.) Expanding
on your notes is especially important if you did not tape an interview,
or if you can not see the video a second time. So . . . it would
be a good idea if as soon as possible after class as you possibly
can, you sit down somewhere and expand on your notes from the video
seen in class.
- You will base your first paper on the video presented in class, supplemented
-- if you like -- by your choice of materials from the Library.
- Length: 4- 6 well-written double-spaced pages; minimum length
= 4 pages.
- Due at the end of the Week 03.
