Memory in the Movies Project
Due Wednesday, April 25 by 11:59 pm to the D2L Drop Box
 
Overview
For this project, you and your group members will write a paper about the film The Vow (2012) within the context of research and theories on memory.
 
View the film
First, you need to obtain a copy of the film and watch it.  You should probably do this even if you have watched the movie before.  You could watch the movie as a group or individually.  As you watch the film, you may want to take notes.  You may also want to watch the entire film, or parts of it, more than once.
 
Apply your knowledge about memory
Your group’s goal is to write a paper that discusses how the film is related to concepts and principles about memory, research findings, and/or theories or models.  Please keep in mind that your main purpose is to demonstrate what you have learned in this class.  Be sure to address the following points in your group paper:
 

  • In your own words, explain what EPISODIC MEMORY is and how it works. Describe AT LEAST ONE (preferably more) example from the film in which Paige has difficulties with episodic memory.  Discuss AT LEAST ONE strategy that Paige uses to help her episodic memory.  (5 POINTS)

 

  • In your own words, explain what SEMANTIC MEMORY is and how it works. Describe AT LEAST ONE (preferably more) example from the film in which Paige has difficulties with semantic memory.  Discuss AT LEAST ONE strategy that Paige uses to help her semantic memory.  (5 POINTS)

 

  • In your own words, explain what SKILL MEMORY is and how it works. Describe AT LEAST ONE (preferably more) example from the film in which Paige has difficulties with skill memory.  Discuss AT LEAST ONE strategy that Paige uses to help her skill memory.  (5 POINTS)

 

  • In your own words, explain what WORKING MEMORY is and how it works. Describe AT LEAST ONE (preferably more) example from the film in which Paige has difficulties with working memory.  Discuss AT LEAST ONE strategy that Paige uses to help her working memory.  (5 POINTS)

 

  • Discuss ONE element that you could add to the film or change in the film that would result in a more extensive illustration of some aspect of memory. For example, maybe you can imagine an additional scene (besides those that already exist), a new character, a new setting, or a new part of the plot that would be artistically appropriate but would also do a good job of portraying some aspect of memory.  Describe the new element in detail, state where it would appear within the film, and explain what it would illustrate.  This is your big chance to be a screenwriter.  (5 POINTS)
  • Your paper should be well-organized, clear, concise, use proper grammar, use correct spelling, etc. This also includes using APA format for your citations and references.  If you decide to have different group members write different parts of the paper, please make sure that the writing style is consistent across the paper and that the various sections flow together well.  The paper must be double-spaced, in 12-point font and saved as a Word file (.docx).  We cannot open .pages files and will not accept PDFs.

 
Sources
Cite and reference sources appropriately using APA style.  At minimum, you should refer to information from lectures and the textbook.  It’s OK to find additional references if you want or need more information about a particular topic.  If you do use additional sources, make sure to include them on your reference list.  However, you are not required to find additional references.
Be sure to use sources appropriately.  For example, if you’re trying to explain something about how memory works, you should cite a scholarly source.  However, a quote from the movie might be perfect if you want an example of how non-scientists think memory works.
 
Write the paper
Write a clear and well-organized paper in which you discuss the film as it relates to memory research and/or theory using the bullet points listed in these guidelines.  Remember to use APA style to cite and reference your sources.  Type the paper, and make it double-spaced.  The paper should be 4 to 8 pages long.  The project is worth 30 points and is due Wednesday, April 25 by 11:59 pm to the D2L drop box.
In assigning a grade, we will consider (a) the extent to which you demonstrated your understanding of memory concepts, theory, and/or research; (b) your creativity and skill in fulfilling the assignment to interpret the film; and (c) whether the paper is well-organized, clear, and concise.
 
Individual Evaluation Scores
Each person in the group must fill out and complete evaluations of their group members by 11:59 pm on Wednesday, April 25 by going the drop box and completing and submitting an evaluation form.  This a statement describing each person’s contribution to the project, and a score from 0 to 5 points reflecting your opinion of whether each person did his or her fair share of work and met his or her responsibilities.  Please be honest in your evaluation of your group members.  You are submitting your evaluations to an individual drop box that your group members don’t have access to.  If you do not submit your evaluation by the time the drop box closes, then you will earn a zero for your evaluation score.
 
Scoring
The group paper is worth 25 points and the evaluation score is worth 5 points for a total of 30 points.
