Apply the concepts you’ve learned this semester to a movie.
Task: In this 4- to 5-page, double spaced paper, you will discuss the connections between a movie and the
concepts in the text by clearly and thoroughly addressing the topics below. In order to complete this paper, you
will need to watch The Avengers(2012). If you are unfamiliar with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, consider
watching the films preceding The Avengers (if I had to pick just one to watch before The Avengers, it would be
Captain America: The First Avenger). Craft an essay that adheres to APA style and use proper grammar,
syntax, and organization (i.e. introduction, thesis statement, transitions, conclusion). This paper does not
require a title page or abstract. Submit your paper to the appropriate Turnitin dropbox by the deadline.
Discuss the periodic phases of development from Chapter 3 of your text. Briefly define and describe each
phase and refer to the scene/s in the film where each phase occurs. Be specific in your discussion of how the
phases unfold (i.e. is there primary and secondary tension? What phase do these concepts fall under?)
Identify task, maintenance, and disruptive roles from Chapter 5. Explain each type of role, how it is present in
the film, and who takes on the role/s.
Explain whether The Avengers are a group or a team (Chapter 7). How can you tell? Discuss the 4 Cs and
describe how they are present in the film. Use specific scene/s from the film.
Compare and contrast defective and effective decision making (Chapters 8 and 9). Are one or both of these
present in the film? What effect does decision making have on The Avengers? Use specific examples to
support your answer.
