A screen play | Social Science homework help

 I have posted the two other student work. 

I really do not understand what should i do in this homework. I need hep with that. 

  Each contribution will be 2-3 single-spaced pages of screenplay script followed by 2-3 double-spaced pages (600-1000 words) of explanation.

Screenplay Contribution. 

Based upon the list of issues in your “Student Homepage” I created groups who will work on a project, a Screenplay.  The members of each group will be organized at random to contribute a scene to their Screenplay.  So, for example, let’s say that a group of students, Yacko, Wacko, and Dot, are set to write a Screenplay about an issue that concerns them all, Global Climate Change.  At random, I will have assigned Dot to begin the screenplay, and Yacko to finish it.  Each member will have one week to do their work.  Each contribution will be 2-3 single-spaced pages of screenplay script followed by 2-3 double-spaced pages (600-1000 words) of explanation.  Students will not discuss their work with one another.  Instead, they will simply post their contribution.  Include scene settings and stage directions as needed.  The story will proceed, rather than be established from the beginning.  The person who begins the screenplay should make an effort to establish a premise, and the person who ends the play should make an effort to conclude the story.  In our example, Dot would begin the story, Wacko would continue the story, and Yacko would conclude it.  Two ground rules: 1) except for the first contribution, each writer may introduce, at most, only one new character, and must include in their contribution at least one of the characters previously introduced – the first scene can have up to three characters; and 2) let’s keep things at a “PG” rating: I would like to think that whatever you have to say can be conveyed in a manner that would interest people of all ages, from, say, 10 to 110.

If a student does not post their contribution by the deadline, I’ll contact them over the weekend, and hopefully we’ll have something by the following Monday, when the next author begins to work on their contribution.  We don’t want that to happen, but it might, in which case, we will simply proceed without that person’s contribution.  That person’s contribution will need to be completed, but it will arrive in the form of a Postscript – a “second ending,” so to speak.  If this needs to happen, I’ll let you know more details.  But we’ll assume that there won’t be any problems.  You all know your deadlines, so organize your schedules to accommodate being able to do your part.

After the Screenplays have been written/completed, I’ll collect the documents and post them in special discussion board for everyone to see.  I’ll say more about that later.

Now, a few tips about how to write.  We’ve all seen good and bad movies.  Try to write a good one!  Each scene ought to do a few things, and since you’re limited in space/time, be concise and make things work at the same time.  Something should happen (no “Waiting for Godot” or experimental theater here, please).  Characters should develop.  Do not write a story in which your characters set out to solve your problem.  Instead, illuminate the problem through the lives of your characters.  Perhaps you have heroes; perhaps you have scoundrels, perhaps both.  Each scene (except the last one) should leave the audience hanging (a cliff hanger).

Besides the screenplay, you want to write your explanation, which we will call “Author’s Notes.”  This is more important to your grade, since I can’t really grade you on the play itself, except that you do need to follow the basic ground rules (characters, PG rating).  Your explanation can be, in brief part, what you have in mind, what’s going on here, the logic, the context, and/or some additional thoughts on the characters and the issue.  Importantly, though, a significant element of your “Author’s Notes” will be your use of the book, The Three Cultures.  Cite (with page numbers [or locations in digital editions] and reference your use of the ideas in the book.  Your task will be to discuss elements of the various approaches to knowledge: Science, Social Science, and the Humanities.  It will be a good idea for you to keep this in mind as you compose your contribution to the Screenplay.  Subsequent authors are welcome to follow up on earlier authors’ explanations: we would, of course, expect you to be “listening” to what’s already happened, and what your collaborators are thinking about.  Remember, your “Author’s Notes” are essential!  Scale the heights and plumb the depths of all you know and what you know of the “three cultures” to make this a densely rich exegesis of your contribution.  We want to hear you being your best (social) scientific scholar/human being…

Education is pretty complex, so you’re welcome to go after any and all of what makes it complex.  New tech.  Changing expectations.  High stakes testing.  Funding.  New ways of thinking/being.  Politics.  Agendas.  Content.  Process.  Knowledge.  Wisdom…  Etc…   Maybe there isn’t a problem, or maybe the problem is the debate over whether there is a problem.  Perhaps the key to the issue is the interrelationships among people who are in the thick of it all.  You can decide.  It’s up to you.

The author of Scene One must begin the play with an overall title of the Screenplay.  Subsequent authors are allowed to change the title if they think events warrant it (just say “New Title: ….”).  Don’t be surprised if I provide a(nother) new title at the very end of everything.  Beneath the title, be sure to say “Scene One” (subsequent authors should do the same: Scene 2, Scene 3…). At the end of your scene, give us a double space and then put “Author’s Notes” at the top of the page, and then write your Author’s Notes.

Scene One writers, please follow a script template.  A good one is available from the Oscars site at: https://www.oscars.org/sites/oscars/files/scriptsample.pdf.  And the rest of the writers, please follow the same format.  It isn’t important that you all follow the format precisely; we just want to be consistent.

And remember, we aren’t collaborating as in discussing with one another via email or wherever.  We’re just writing.

As you write your contribution, think of your overall issue.  And imagine what sort of a story would tell us more than any single explanation could say about it.  I expect we’ll see some pretty amazing things.  Let your imaginations soar!
