Hello, this assignment is intended to analyze and compare those two videos (each video about 3 minutes long) using 5 course reading sources (you can choose the 5 you want of the six readings I attached below, also, feel free to use quotes from the videos themselves, but it would be great if a couple of quotes are included from the readings themselves). This assignment is worth 30% of my overall grade in the class; therefore, it is VERY IMPORTANT that instructions are followed precisely. The two videos to be compared are posted below, they are short but have a lot of essential content that must be used for the paper, because the paper basically should be deep analysis and comparison of the two videos.
Here are the instructions made by the course professor:
"Compare and contrast two video essays utilizing a minimum of five course readings to support your arguments in a 4-5 page paper and submit via Turnitin by Dec. 11th, 2018. The purpose of this assignment is to deepen your understanding of (1) how concepts of language and culture have been used to explain school outcomes, (2) the ways people "make meaning" of the institution of schooling, and (3) the ways in which the concepts of language and culture complicate and support our understanding of teaching and learning practices. This assignment is not a simple summary of the two videos, rather it requires you to analyze the effectiveness of the videos in meeting their aims and in addressing important course concepts. Using your notes from viewing the videos in class and from repeated viewings of the two videos on our course YouTube channel along with your lecture notes, course articles, and past assignments compare and contrast the videos and include the following: 1. Give a brief overview of each of the videos. Include what you think the video authors intended to contribute to our understanding of how language, culture, and education are portrayed in school and society. 2. How effective were the videos in showing how different school and societal portrayals serve to perpetuate and/or contest stereotypes or deficit views of culture and language? How might you strengthen their work? 3. How did each video “make meaning” of the institution of schooling? (i.e. What might the group say the purpose of schooling should be?) 4. How did each video inform your understanding of issues of equity and access in schools today? 5. How are these videos a reflection of what you learned in this course (or not)? 6. Include a References section. All citations should be in American Psychological Association (APA) format. A tutorial and sample paper utilizing APA style"
It is important for the assignment to be done by the due date as it is due date is 30 mins away from the time I provided on this questions. Please let me know If You have any questions. PLEASE stick to the due date, the 5 readings and their references, and the page limit.
