AVOID WORD REPETITION -One thing that can wreck the STYLE of any answer is the repeated use of the same word, or even a variation on that word, especially in the same sentence, when that repetition is not done intentionally or for effect. CREATE WORD PICTURES -That means using evocative word choices (use action verbs, use illustrative adjectives). Write in a way that paints a picture in the reader’s mind in such a way that would compel someone to engage in the story.

In order to understand the dynamics of presenting, it is helpful to analyze speeches to review what went well and what could be improved, and then apply to your own presentations.
For this assignment, you will find a specific speech of your choice and then evaluate the speaker’s effectiveness in nonverbal and verbal cues, presentation skills, content, cultural competence (using communication styles to overcome cultural barriers), and speaker credibility. You will identify the strategies of effective presentation in your review.
Go to TED Talks, American Rhetoric, or the Library of Congress and search for a speech with a topic or speaker of your interest. The speech will need to be video as well as audio, so you can analyze the nonverbal elements along with the content.
After watching the speech, reflect on it by answering the following questions below. Please use the Unit 3 Assignment Template to for your submission.
Identify the speech and URL.
Briefly describe your first impression of the speaker and content.
Identify the topic and purpose of the speech. Is the thesis clear or is there some ambiguity?
Explain how the speech functions to transmit, reinforce, restore and/or transform culture.
Identify the mode of delivery that was used — memorized, manuscriipt, impromptu, or extemporaneous.
Which of the five canons of rhetoric were effective? Describe at least one canon that needed to be improved.
Explain two nonverbal cues you noticed. Did they add to the effectiveness of the speech? Did any of the nonverbal cues contradict the verbal message?
Explain if the verbal message was effective. Was there any content or words that were not effective? Was suitable language used?
What kind of audience does it appear the speech is geared towards — unmotivated, random, passive, motivated, self-selected, homogenous, hostile, or absent?
Explain whether cultural competence was displayed by the speaker through communication styles. How did the speaker overcome any cultural barriers?
What was the evidence provided? Was it effective? Did you find the speaker credible? Briefly describe why or why not. Did the speaker use the “power pose”?
Describe why the format was or was not effective (introduction, body, and conclusion). Which section made the biggest impact on you? Why?
Explain two specific areas the speaker could have improved based on the strategies discussed in the text readings or supplemental materials.
Explain two speaking strategies you learned (from either what the speaker did well or what the speaker needs to improve) that you would apply to your presentations.

PLEASE ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS !
‘Documentary film, in everyday commonsense parlance, implies the absence of elements of performance, acting, staging, directing, etc., criteria which presumably distinguish the documentary form from the narrative fiction film.’
– Thomas Waugh, The Right to Play Oneself: Looking Back on Documentary Film 2011
Discuss the possibilities and limitations of this definition of documentary with reference to ‘The Act of Killing’ (Joshua Oppenheimer)
Part 1: Define at least one (1) key term from this week ( Please focus on National Cinema or Propaganda) AND elaborate on its significance in film history (feel free to reference and clips or films from this week to elaborate on your answer, if necessary). Part 2: 1) Offer a brief overview of one of our film screening’s from this week (Shanghai Express 1932, Triumph of the Will 1935, or Ara Osterweil on Kenneth Anger’s Fireworks 1947) make a claim on how you understand the film in relation to the moment in film history we are studying this week (engage with ideas from the lecture and readings Part 3: Provide an analysis of one (1) screen/moment from our screening of this week (Shanghai Express, Triumph of the Will, The River, or Fireworks) in relation to one key term or concept from this week (make sure you briefly define your key term/concept). 2) Make a claim that elaborates on what your analysis offers in terms of studying this moment in film history Tips: Keep part 1 brief: introduce the term, offer a definition for it, elaborate on its significance for this particular moment in film history. Keep your overview of the film(s) brief: 1-3 sentences is what I am looking for here. When you connect the film to its moment in film history, I am asking you to draw upon information in the readings and lectures that contextualizes the moment in cinema we are studying. You should be able to link the film to the moment in which it emerges and discuss that for at least 2-3 sentences . For your analysis, I recommend starting with a brief definition of a term (ex. synchronous sound) and then offer a thesis that explains how you will use said term to analyze the film and what results that analysis will yield. A thorough scene analysis requires a thorough overview of the scene in question. Pretend that your reader has never seen the film. SHOW them the scene you want to analyze as it relates/functions in the narrative, and then proceed into your analysis only after that. A main attribute of this assignment is connecting terms, concepts, and films to the film history we are discussing each day. When I am asking you to think of the film or term in relation to film history, I want to see you dig into the historical context of the moment we are studying, whether it’s about industry, economy, politics, etc. Proofread all of your work prior to submission. Make sure you are using complete sentences, proper citation practice (no works cited is necessary for this assignment, but in-text citations of readings are recommended), correct punctuation and grammar, etc. Lastly, be sure to italicize your film titles and to correctly name films and their filmmakers.
Watch 8 1/2 by Federico Fellini:
Please answer all questions in essay form using complete sentences. An example also attached below. The minimum requirement for each question is 30 words – the maximum allowed is 80 words. Please make your responses as personal as possible. A class discussion of the film the week following the viewing will be based on your responses. This is not an exercise in using Wikipedia or IMDB. Make it stylish! Use the techniques in the Style Guide. PREFERRED WRITING TECHNIQUES GIVE CONTEXT -It is important to write essay answers to questionnaires using complete sentences with CONTEXT so that each essay answer could stand alone as a communicative and persuasive copy for someone who has no knowledge of that week’s film or other media asset. Indicate what and who you’re writing about, don’t assume that the reader knows or has seen the question you are responding to. AVOID WORD REPETITION -One thing that can wreck the STYLE of any answer is the repeated use of the same word, or even a variation on that word, especially in the same sentence, when that repetition is not done intentionally or for effect. CREATE WORD PICTURES -The point of the class questionnaires, aside from being tools to make sure you watch the films and listen to the podcasts, is for you to have consistent practice in the art of WRITING WITH STYLE. That means using evocative word choices (use action verbs, use illustrative adjectives). Write in a way that paints a picture in the reader’s minds in such a way that would compel someone to engage in the film (or podcast) even if they’ve never heard of it. WRITING WITH STYLE -The ability to write with style will be invaluable to your career, so use our class questionnaires as exercises to better your own abilities as a writer. Because like it or not, a large part of being able to do what you want to do will require you all to be good writers. PUNCTUATION AND SPACING ON THE PAGE FOR EMPHASIS – If you are working in Adobe Acrobat (which you should be), It’s quite EASY to do a paragraph break. You can go bold. You can italicize. You can even underline! REQUIRED WRITING TECHNIQUES ALLITERATION – Using multiple words with the same starting letter or sound in a pattern that is pleasing. RHYTHM and MUSICALITY – read your copy OUT LOUD to create this effect on the page. REPETITION OF WORDS – Used for an aesthetic effect or to make a point, not randomly or accidentally. USE OF FAMILIAR PHRASES or COMMON SAYINGS – and/or turning a known phrase around. ASK A PROVOCATIVE QUESTION… to which you either give the answer or purposefully withhold it. PARAGRAPH BREAKS – for emphasis, or to create a rhythm, or to highlight a phrase and make it stand out. BE CREATIVE – replace commonplace adjectives and adverbs with more expressive choices. Instead of “very hot,” maybe “scorching”? WRITE WORD PICTURES – use your words to paint visual images in the mind of your reader. Be illustrative. Avoid generic descriiptions. GIVE CONTEXT – For the questionnaires, always incorporate elements of the question into your response. Don’t assume that the reader is aware of anything! Let alone the question to which you’re responding. BE PROFESSIONAL – When referring to historical figures or people who are actually alive, use their full name (first and last) the first time you introduce them. Later, use their last name or their full name (you may include honorifics such as Ms., Mr., etc. but do not refer to actual persons by their first names – ever!). You don’t know these people! However, with fictional characters the opposite applies. Fictional characters should always be identified by their first names. NO “I STATEMENTS” – Never refer to yourself in your writing with words such as “I”, “Me”, “To me”, “I think”, “For me”, etc. As a professional writer, you are a neutral character even if what you are relaying is in fact a personal response. This takes a bit of extra thinking. Describe your thoughts and feelings without identifying them through the use of “I”, “Me”, etc
