”, by Sharon Shattuck, about her father’s

experience as a transgender person. The documentary is available on CD at the University Main

Library (on reserve), and for streaming in this website

https://sites.temple.edu/tulvid/from-this-day-

forward/ (we obtained a special access to the fil for this class). It is also available from Amazon,

iTunes and VHX (for a fee).

2) The second documentary is

“The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson”

, by David France, about

a critical figure in the gay and transgender movements. It is available on Netflix. The instructions

for writing this three-page paper are the same as for the first paper.  Explain what you found

interesting in the film you chose, making connections with class material, going straight to the

point, and avoiding long descriptions, definitions or quotations. REMEMBER TO CITE YOUR

SOURCES IF YOU USE ANY, otherwise it is plagiarism! Upload the paper on Canvas under

<Assignments>.

After watching one of these two films, write a three-page response (12-point font-Times New

Roman, double-spaced). What aspects of the film caught your attention? Why? Most importantly,

what aspects of the film can you relate to the topics we have read about and discussed in class (the

construction of identity, class identity, social mobilization, race identity, gender identity, sexual

orientation and identity, etc. and their intersections)? Given the page limitations, it is better for you

to go straight to the point rather than devoting space to long introductions, descriptions, quotations

or definitions. The purpose of the paper is to reflect and find connections with the course material

(readings, discussions, presentations, etc.). Be sure to demonstrate that you watched the entire film

and not just a portion of it. REMEMBER TO CITE YOUR SOURCES IF YOU USE ANY,

otherwise it is plagiarism!

When Grading the papers, I ask these questions

:

Does the paper demonstrate that the student watched the whole documentary and has done the

readings?

Does the paper show the ability of the student to think critically and apply the material learned in

class to a specific case?

Does the paper have a clear, arguable thesis?

Is the paper organized and logically structured?

Is the prose readable and appealing, and the paper well presented with no typos, repetitions or

incomplete sentences?
