Paper Prompt I Selected: Text-to-Text option
Working Thesis: In the movie Hidden Figures, Katherine blah blah blah blah blah blah. [pretend there is a complete thesis statement here]
How I Plan to Support This Thesis: I plan to write five body paragraphs to support this thesis.
- In the first body paragraph, I plan to define what stereotype threat is and how it impacts others. I will then focus on summarizing all the ways that African Americans appear to be stereotyped in the film. I may also include some quotes from Claude Steele where he focuses on specific ways that African Americas were stereotyped in Chicago. I haven’t decided yet.
- In the second body paragraph, I plan to show how Katherine faces stereotype threat. In particular, I will discuss XXX scene and highlight blah blah blah.
- In the third paragraph, I’ll show how the stereotypes held against Katherine initially limited her opportunities to advance at NASA. In particular, I will talk about blah blah blah blah.
- In the fourth paragraph, I’ll also show how the stereotype threat limited how Katherine saw herself. In particular, I’ll discuss XXX scene where Katherine appears to talk down about herself.
- In the fifth paragraph, I’ll address how Katherine was able to use a growth mindset to overcome this instance of stereotype threat. I’ll point out how she said blah blah blah and completed XXX actions–all evidence of her having a strong growth mindset.
Conclusion “So What”: Not sure yet. I may talk about the power of mindsets and focus on how much Katherine was able to achieve at Nasa. Still working on this.
Questions I Have For My Peer Review Group:
- I’m not sure how to begin this paper. What sort of hook could I create for the introduction paragraph?
- What do you think of my thesis? Am I on topic? Is it clear, specific, and analytical?
- Am I referencing the best evidence in my body section? Are there any scenes from the movie that you think I should include or exclude?
my choice is Text-to-Self option.
