There will also be multiple choice questions on the lecture notes. Expect about 3 questions per module:
Note that half of the multiple choice questions are based on the readings.
Short Answer Questions:
Questions will ask you to apply a specific concept to a specific problem. For example, here’s a question in which you’re asked to think about the press pool (the problem) in terms of the conflict perspective (the concept):
Why might someone with a conflict perspective on the media view the creation of the press pool as evidence that the commercial media have become a propaganda outlet for the U.S. government during wartime?
Here’s an acceptable answer:
The press pool is designed is part to control the mainstream media’s war reporting–to ensure that the war is portrayed as a good thing. Someone with a conflict perspective might see the press pool as an attempt by the government to ensure that the United States’ power over other countries goes unquestioned the American people.
A few questions will ask you to summarize a key point. For example:
In Sleepless in Hollywood, Lynda Obst describes the role that a studio’s President of Marketing has on whether a script gets turned into a movie. How does her description of this person’s role imply that Hollywood does not necessarily give the people what they want?
Here’s an acceptable answer:
As Obst notes, this person does not think about what people want so much as they think about whether they can market the film. If the premise is too complex (i.e. it won’t fit in an advertisement) and if the premise doesn’t seem to translate into a coherent marketing plan, the film won’t get made.
