Final Project Instructions: Watch the documentary The Corporation (linked below)

Final Project Instructions:
Watch the documentary The Corporation (linked below). Write a five-page paper in which you critically evaluate the film. In evaluating the film, refer to chapters 6, 8, and 10 in your textbook. Do NOT use any other sources to evaluate the film. In writing your essay, you will want to briefly summarize the film’s main points (your summary should be no more than one page). Then, analyze the film’s key arguments. If you find the arguments persuasive, show why they are so and develop them further. If you find them unpersuasive, explain why. One question you might want to think about is: do the practices depicted in the film suggest that the American political system is not working properly? Or do these practices instead suggest that the American political system is in fact working as it was designed? In answering this question, you should think about James Madison’s discussion of factions and pluralism in Federalist #10.
Your essay will be graded on the persuasiveness of your analysis, the effectiveness of your use of the required sources, and the overall quality of your writing. So be sure to give yourself enough time to write, revisit, and carefully edit your essay so that you can submit a clear, convincing, and well-written work. Your essay is due by midnight on February 4 and is worth 20 points.
Let me know if you have any questions.
