Assessment
and Goals
:

ASSESSMENT: Students prepare (in both oral and written form) their own analyses, which are then discussed and commented upon by the others in the class. Four five page papers and a regularly kept film journal will be required, with a final essay exam. Final paper. Familiarity with Weimer culture. GOALS: Students learn how to use various ways of looking at different kinds of cinematic work or film works of diverse periods or purposes. The range of films provides an initial insight into the development of the German motion picture and its uniquely German qualities. Through film presentations, readings and lectures students acquire knowledge, not only about stylistic and literary matters, but also about the historical, social and artistic climates in which the German film flourished.
