Civil Rights movement & Remember the titans

Brunnsåkersskolan, Halmstad · Senast uppdaterad: 24 september 2019

During approx 4-5 weeks we will discuss and analyse the Civil Rights Movement. We will watch a documentary to understand what and how everything happened in the USA as well as the movie Remember the titans. The focus afterwards is then to write an analysis where you discuss certain themes from the movie.

Remember the titans

What? You have just seen the movie ”Remember the titans”. Use your notes and have them nearby when you write. You are now going to write an analysis of the film.

Why? You are going to write a longer piece of text, in English! The purpose is partly to to practise how to structure as well as formulate a text and to avoid unecessary words and informal language as well as analyse and discuss.

How? After the introduction, watching the documentary as well as the movie Remember the titans you will have approx 4 weeks to write, get feedback and revise your text. The text must be at least 1 A4 page but not more than 3 pages.



Introduction (use this word) in the introduction, you present and explain the subject to the reader. Tell the reader what your text is going to be about and explain what perspectives you are going to discuss.

”An introductory paragraph, as the opening of a conventional essaycomposition, or report, is designed to grab people's attention. It informs readers about the topic and why they should care about it, but also adds enough intrigue to get them to continue to read. In short, the opening paragraph is your chance to make a great first impression.”



Avoid using informal language such as;


”gonna” ”wanna” etc.

Try not to use ”I as much”. For example; you do not have to write ”I like apples”. You could also write ”Apples tastes good, apples are delicious” etc. Go straight to the point!


Follow the Checklist for Writing (PDF).
