Essay 1: Modern Times(1936, dir. Charlie Chaplin)Assignment:Write a 750 word essay (min. 600, max. 800) that responds to one of the questions below.  Target audience:Your classmates and instructor, that is, readers who know the film and would be puzzled, not to mention insulted, if the paper spent a lot of time rehashing the plot. Purpose:There are several possibilities here. Your paper’s purpose might be any of the following:? Analyze a particular element of the film, such as the recurrent images of food or of eating (or, in some cases, of being eaten).? Explain the film’s theme, that is, its core idea or observation about American life and what director Chaplin wants to get across or wants viewers to understand about “modern times,” and not just 1936, the year the film was released, but in 2011, America now. Does the film illustrate the adage that “The more things change, the more they stay the same”?? Examine the film’s use of comedy and whether comedy can be an effective means for conveying a serious social message.Your thesis:Remember what a thesis is: a defendable or arguable claim, a central point backed up by “textual evidence.” And since we are using films as “texts,” textual evidence in this case means specific scenes, details, or even bits of dialogue from the film to serve as examples of points or arguments you want to make. Think of your essay as a well-engineered car and your thesis is its engine to drive your readers through the countryside of your ideas. Without an engine, no one’s going anywhere. Likewise, without a strong, bold, even gutsy thesis or main claim, the essay might sputter along and then conk out. Don’t let that happen. Come up with something worth arguing or defending. There are two views to writing an essay, and you can choose which view you want to adopt. The first is: “I have to say something.” The second view is: “I have something to say!” Go with the second view and your paper will be stronger for it.
