What were some of your favorite films growing up and why?

Do you remember anything about Al Jolson and the first talkies?

What do you remember about the excitement surrounding Gone with the Wind?

Were there films your parents forbade you to see? What were they and why were you not allowed to see them?

What films were the most influential for you?

g. Internet and New Technology: When and why did you get your first computer? (If they don’t have one then ask why not)

How much time do they spend on the computer and what do they do? (are they just playing games or surfing the web.)

Do they do e-commerce, download music or email people?

Do they know about Facebook, Myspace, Twitter, Blogging, You Tube (etc) and do they use any of these technologies?

Please organize your interview information according to the following guidelines, trying to

make your paper as readable and accessible as possible:

  • Create a Power Point presentation of your results to present to class.
  • The presentation should have pictures of the subjects interviewed and any similarities or differences in their experience with media and include short summaries and quotes from the subjects.
  • Paper
  • Put your name, the participant’s name and age, and the relationship you have with your
  • Interview participants at the top of the page.

  • Group your interview participant’s answers under the assignment’s five categories:
  • sound recording, radio, TV/cable, Internet and movies.

  • Write at least a paragraph (single-spaced) for each category.
  • Paraphrase your interview. However, if there’s a great quote—something that you think
  • might be fun to read in class—include what your participant said verbatim.

  • Include only information that seems the most poignant or interesting. For example, if
  • your participant didn’t say anything interesting or worthwhile about radio, skip that category

    entirely. (He or she might make up for it in another category.)

  • Bold the responses that are the most poignant or interesting to you—something that
  • made you say “Wow” or “Aha!”

  • The entire project should be between two and four pages.
  • In your summary conclusion compare your media experience with theirs and ask yourself 50 years from now how might you respond to a similar project.
