Assignment: Every other week you will write a reflection paper evaluating the reading material, and the film/s assigned for the previous and current week. You should not try to cover all the material; rather select one or two elements you find particularly interesting and talk about it/them.
Choosing a clear focus will help you write an effective report because you must do more than merely summarizing.
Research: Please make sure to look up secondary sources and for the films/documentaries to find the information about the director, and any other information you deem useful for someone reading your papers.
Purpose: This assignment is designed to help you evaluate and understand how cities developed, how similar and how different the development is in each of the East Asian countries, and how society affects the cities and vice versa. Moreover, it will help prepare and decide which topics you want to select for your midterm and final papers.
Audience: You are writing your reflection papers to show to your Professor and classmates how a specific gender issue in East Asia relate to your personal experiences and shape your understanding of class-related material. You must maintain an academic tone and your paper must still be thoroughly and cohesively organized.
Reflection Papers should be singled spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point size font, 750-1000 words.
– Do not forget to cite your sources (minimum of 3), or you will get point deductions. You cannot list websites as sources. Remember: movies and videos are also sources. If the source comes from a website, you must cite them correctly.
To learn how cite internet sources:
Guiding Questions: Respond to the following six (6) questions:
1- How does X, Y, Z (pick topic) affect the development of the city you are discussing?
2- What similarities X, Y, Z (same as question 1) show with other cities/countries/Miami?
3- What differences X, Y, Z (same as question 1) show with other cities/countries/Miami?
4- How does X, Y, Z (same as question 1) work globally?
5- Provide examples for 1 through 4 from the reading and or movie for each.
