How to Write a Movie Report:

Similar to a book report you write in school, movie reports entail the essential parts beyond the film’s summary. In other words, you write about the main characters, their roles and the life lessons an audience can take from the film, itself. You gather notes from the book, compare and contrast the story-line to the film.

Here are examples of a book report:

  1. What is the book’s story-line?
  2. Who are the main characters?
  3. Who is the protagonist?
  4. Who is the antagonist?
  5. What have you learned from the book?

Here are examples of a movie report:

  • Write the film’s synopsis with 32 words or less.
  • Name & Describe the characters.
  • What are the main characters’ purposes in the film?
  • What are the similarities and differences between the film & book versions?
  • Overall conclusion about the life lessons audiences can gather from the film.

School’s Back in Action:

School started nearly three days ago and I already love my classes for the semester, despite one of them to be seemingly challenging. For instance, learning how to collect data and using mathematical equations on Microsoft Excel. The homework load has not kicked in yet because it is the first week back but hopefully, I can keep up to date with the workload, turn it on time and follow the instructions.

I know that this is a random blog post tonight, but it was the only topic I can think of at the moment before I hit the sack and prepare for another educational day.

I hope everyone has a great night tonight! Keep on blogging and y’all will do fine.

To Future University Students: College Work is Complex

As a third year student at a university, college work is complex  but the only way you can succeed in college is to be an overachiever and focus on your studies without procrastinating and cramming your books into your backpack one day before you take a test. And, ask professors for help if you are confused about your assignments.

When I left high school, I thought college was going to be easy as a breeze, but when I received an “F” on my first English paper at the beginning of freshman year, not only did I feel like I failed my first paper in college, little did I know that I was adjusting to the “Real-World” environment. And, I needed to be a responsible, young 19 year old by asking questions to my professors, arrive to class on time everyday and re-do my work until I earned an “A.” You don’t just show up to class, hand in your work and think that you got an “A” because there are bumpy roads you have to drive on, but if you pay attention to what is said and understand what you have to turn in, keep driving down that road and your car will be on smooth pavement at the end of the semester.

Have fun, but take advantage of the opportunities you will have at school.

Do Not Show Fear of Your Writing Skills:

When I was in middle school, I was terrible at writing, even though I loved to do it as my favorite activity. I admit that I was horrible at using punctuation correctly and adding words in sentences that did not make sense. Little did I know that I would become a blogger and share this with other bloggers. Honestly, in my mind, I thought I was a writer, but in actuality, I was not much of one due to plenty of errors on my written assignments I encountered throughout my years of middle school and high school. Even though I was shy to ask for help, I went to college and my writing skills improved when I asked my English professor for help, although I continue to see some mistakes in my papers when I read aloud.

The point being is: do not be afraid to show how you write. Yes, criticism can hurt, but if you accept constructive feedback from your friends, family, bloggers and professors, you will be able to step up your game and enhance your writing capabilities. Don’t be afraid to seek out for help because that is what teachers and professionals within the subject are there for.

The Point of Writing And Blogging:

From the time I started writing, I loved it. I enjoyed learning about pronouns, verbs and other pieces of information from elementary and middle schools. In high school, I enjoyed writing papers, but the topics were not as interesting and were somewhat useful until I entered college.

Now in my second year of college and already a beginner in blogging, writing is still my passion. This blog serves its purpose by explaining that the point of blogging is to practice and use your writing abilities in a creative, passionate and professional manner.

Writing classes, terminology usage, tutorials and blogging for fun are as useful and helpful as possible.
