13th Reflection Paper

For this assignment, you must watch and review the documentary, 13th. This documentary will not be played in class (in Blackboard) so you must rent it and watch it on your own. You are strongly encouraged to watch it a second time to allow for deeper analysis. I would recommend watching it once as you would watch any documentary. Then, I would suggest watching it a second time an taking notes, writing down quotes, and so forth. Please refrain from looking up documentary reviews or general comments as this will bias your personal understanding and reflection. The documentary has a lot to offer when trying to understand modern day slavery and social justice within the United States. You should submit a 5-8 page-review (not including a title page, abstract page, or references page) of the documentary using the following rubric.I do prorate the paper based on length. You should use 12-point Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins, and double-spacing only. I will adjust the font size and other items if you tamper with them to check the length. For example, if you submit 3 pages of content (not including the title page, abstract page, or references), the best grade you can earn is a 60%. Please do not submit a PDF.This assignment will need to clear SafeAssignment in Blackboard. Failure to do so, or my discovery of engagement in academic dishonesty, will result in an automatic 0/100 on the assignment.0102025Critique· Remember, there are clear connections to class materials that may vary from your previous/current beliefs—stick with what the research shows.Critique consists of a basic opinion based on personal feeling of “I liked it” or “I hated it” and is not considered a critique because it does not focus on themes, author’s intent, or documentary’s style.Critique consists of thoughts, responses, and reactions to the documentary.The student may discuss only one aspect of the documentary, such as themes.
