Mead/13 Paper: Structure

Below is the 3 part structure for the Mead/13 comparative paper due Tuesday.

SINGLE OR DOUBLE SPACE: TURNITIN MAKES IT SINGLE SPACE--JUST WRITE UNTIL YOU ARE FINISHED!

Part 1: Introduction to the theme: "Coming of Age." From book/research, etc.
Part 2: Introduction to the book and film: brief overview of each, preparing/orienting the reader for the comparisons to follow. Try and connect them in some way here in a general way.
Part 3: Comparison of the book and film. Here is where you develop general categories to discuss the book and film. No overall reviews (book/film). No re-counting of content. Rather, as we discussed in class, create 1 or more focused categories (depending on how much you can develop)for comparison. For example: Katrina's idea on Mead v. 13 (director's view) on the nature of adolescence. Or, "Coming of Age: in Samoa v. Contemporary California (this will require sub-categories, and is a "breadth" paper). or, "The Girl and her Family," or "Adolescent Storm and Stress: Necessary? (see article in links), and so on.

Email me with questions or your ideas for categories.
