Fundamentals of Communication
Response Paper 2
“The Lunch Date” (1989) dir. Adam Davidson
-Write a 750-1000 word (about 2 ½ -3 pages, double-spaced, Times New Roman 12 point font) observation/reaction/analysis.
-Questions to consider in your paper:
-What is your impression of the two main characters?
-Who are they (your best guess) and where might they each live? What tells you this?
-Why do you suppose they reacted the way they did?
-Did stereotypes play a role in their reactions? What gave you this impression?
-Do you feel there was enough dialogue in this film? Why?
-If you would like, discuss something else that is related to what we have been discussing in class. Anything since Day 1 is fair game.
-Incorporate at least three (3) vocabulary terms from Chapter 5 Nonverbal Communication into your response paper.
-Please underline or highlight the terms used.
-This paper should be completely your own opinion. It is not meant to be a formal research paper, so no need to cite sources.
-Mentioning a part of the story when you are illustrating a point is fine, but please do not take up half of your paper to summarize the film. I have seen it.
-Please write this paper in paragraph form. Be sure to double-check your grammar and punctuation.
-Submit your papers on Canvas.
