Save the Last Dance

In class on Thursday, we are going to watch Save the Last Dance and do a close reading of the text. We will be using the tools we have been developing so far to read the film and understand what it teaches us about teenagers, about race, about gender, about social class, about dancing, etc...

Please watch the film before Thursday and take notes while you watch. Then, we will watch it again (most people who study media watch a text several times to really get at the "secret education"!) and see what else we can see.

Also, please check out Kayla's blog to skim the article she will be presenting as her media artifact on Thursday...
