For the first summary assignment for ENG 111, we will have a little fun with summarizing.
We will summarize video you select from the provided videos. Each of the videos was an educational video, shown in classrooms many years ago. The films were selected because they feature outdated information or societal attitudes or obsolete technology. By virtue of being an educational video, these films were shown in schools; the videos we will see were targeted toward teenagers and older.
Paragraph one — Introduction: What did you watch?
Objectively introduce the video, including its title, producer, and year of release. Also include an overview of the subject matter. Finally, include a thesis that includes three pieces of evidence to be used in your third paragraph to prove the information is obsolete or outdated.
Paragraph two — Summary: What was the film about?
Again, objectively summarize the video. Answer the question above by describing the plot line of the video.
Paragraph three — Identifying: What was out of date in the video?
Offer three instances of information in the video that is out of date or even obsolete. Consider exploring what kinds of appeals are used to persuade the audience and why they no longer work.
Paragraph four — Conclude: Where have we been?
Sum up what you have just said. What was the film you watched about? Restate your thesis. What examples did you use to prove that the film was outdated? What could one gain from watching this themselves?
Here are the videos from which you may select. They are all linked, in order on the “Videos for Summary One” page.
All the videos are linked on the Moodle site and appear in alphabetical order, unless the title begins with an article (a, the).
