This part of the paper requires you to go deeper and provide a critical analysis of a
central theme that is portrayed in both the movie and the documentary. An example of
a central theme may include poverty, race, gender, discrimination or the depiction of the
teacher as the “hero.” You may use one of these themes or select a more relevant
theme from your film and/or your documentary. Make sure you select a theme that
directly links to issues concerning urban education to analyze. Your paper must be at
least 6 to 8 pages long, double spaced, in APA format and should analyze the
components listed below. Support your arguments (in-text citations of references)
using at least three references (at least one reference must be new, i.e. not used in
your group paper – no Wikipedia is allowed). You must also include the film and
documentary you are analyzing in your reference section but (the film and
documentary do not count as part of the three references). All references must be
in APA and on a separate reference page at the end of the paper.

– support your arguments with either readings from class or outside references (e.g., if
the theme is student learning and success in life then a broader message may be why
poverty matters, or not, for the issue. If the theme is student motivation or
empowerment then a broader message may be how schools are structured for learning
either through power relationships, the curriculum (is it developmentally appropriate,
meaningful, and/or culturally relevant), or assessment (e.g., teaching to the test). If the
theme is poverty, the message may be oppression and the social, economic and cultural
structures that perpetuate poverty and lack of opportunity in school and
society). Answer and include details from the film AND the documentary.
