Guidelines and Rubric: Music Video Analysis (20pts.)

Format: Discussion Post

Length: 750words

Conduct a close reading of one music video of a Hip Hop song of your choosing.  You will submit this as a DISCUSSION POST on Blackboard.  Along with your analysis, you will include a weblink to the music video  so that others can view it too. Be sure to respond to one other post to attain full points.  Remember the examples of close readings we did in the class.

Be sure to include the following:

  • Contextual, Movement, and Sociopolitical Analysis
  • Very specific and poetic movements and visual descriptions
  • Connections and references to material covered in class discussions
  • Use of the vocabulary we learnt in class
  • Make a clear sociopolitical point or observation as part of your conclusion
