Writing the Report

And you can do this for more than one subtopic

For example, you could have one set of "Journalist's Questions" for women's reality and a separate set for men's reality

And you could have still another for widows, etc., . . .

  • Time Sequence, T1 ---> T2 ---> T3 ---> T4 ---> . . .
    (In this case T1, etc., can equal scenes in the video, for example)

  • Space Sequence, S1 ---> S2 ---> S3 ---> S4 ---> . . .
    (In this case S1, etc., could equal the spacial scenes in the video)

    (In other cases -- but not so easy to do with the information provided in this film -- with S1, etc., you could describe situations East to West, for example)

  • N number of items

    "Ten itms define the importance of. . . .

    First, . . . .
    Second, . . . ."
    Third, . . . ."
    Finally, . . . ."

  • Most Important ---> Least Important:

    "The most important partition of . . . between Kypseli men and women is. . . ."

    "Next in importantance to the men is . . . while women. . . ."

  • Comparison / Contrast

    Note how things are the same and how they are different. In the Kypseli case, a logical comparison / contrast would be with / between "The Divided Reality" of the women's world and the men's world.

    Item # 1
    Item # 2
    Item # 3
    Item # 4
    Item # N


Required Last Section:

After you have described what you have seen/heard in your film/lecture you must end your paper with one or more detailed paragraphs indicating your own personal response to and evaluation of the film (required)

When you are finished with your paper it should look something like this . . .

(See more detailed outline below the following thumbnails for further details)

(or "Works Cited")

When you write anything you should consider audience, purpose, and your personal style

  • For your case studiy, your audience should be your classmates in this class
  • do not write your college papers to the professor as audience

See the "Preparing the Final Draft" section of the Sociology - Anthropology - Criminology Writing Guide to see the details of what your Case Study report should look like when you hand it in

Basically, your film review should look like the paper which follows

I. Introdution
[more information on an Introduction]

Put an introductory statement here, explaining the nature of your case study. Include at the end a transitional statement about finding an item of interest that's a good example of some current trend or new discovery.

II. Body
[Give this section an interesting subtitle, something other than "Body"]

Describe and discuss your chosen topic(s) here. (If you do a comparison / contrast paper you will need more than one topic, otherwise a single topic is fine.) Use some form of organizational structure. The "Journalist's Questions," Who,What, When, Where, How and Why are often helpful.

For this assignment your "Body" could be made up of two parts:

    1. A summary of the contents of Kypseli: Women and Men apart -- a Divided Reality (41 min., 1987,  VC 3286)

    2. Your response / evaluation of Kypseli

    Use the Paradigm Online Writing Assistant if you do not have much experience writing college papers.

III. Conclusions

Put your conclusions here.
