ENGL 96 Study Questions

Robert Reich’s Inequality for All viewing questions:

  1. What is the overall thesis of the film? It might take 2 – 3 sentences to explain the major point(s) of the film, so try to explain it fully.
  2. Reich uses several graphs that look very much like the profile of the Golden Gate bridge. What does he show with these graphs? List as many of the subjects of these graphs as you can remember.
  3. Reich also uses a number of other graphs and charts to help explain job economics. For example he uses a pair of cycles he calls “vicious” and “virtuous.” Both of these related to the effects of raising or not raising wages. List as many of the steps in these two cycles as you can.
  4. Now, write your own test question about the film. If it was your job to test students on how well they watched the film, what question would you ask about a piece of key information presented?
