The idea:

“When hurtful stereotypes and ignorant prejudices collide, a major accident is bound to ensue. Mao once said, ‘Without destruction there can be no construction.’ I interpret this to mean that in order to construct (or re-construct), a positive deconstruction is sometimes necessary first. Crash is layered enough to do that and much more. If you have a class of English students that seem open to receiving pop-cultural topics for writing and discussion subject-matter, you might have some success with this piece.” –Lee Hobbs

The purpose:

Already this year, we’ve read and discussed various multi-cultural issues that have asked us to put ourselves in others’ shoes, to walk the walk of people in a different place and time than ourselves. In doing that, we’ve found themes that transcend culture and time. I hope that the movie Crash (although altered from its original version) helped bring those same issues to a modern-day America where we can examine and challenge our beliefs, our society, and ourselves from where we are today.

The hope:

In order to be most effective in our discussions and reflections, we need to maintain an academic maturity and sensitivity when sharing our views and listening to others. I know you can chose your words carefully, respect differences, and listen with an open mind. Please remember this as we ask and answer important questions.

(& Peter)

Take a minute with your table group and ask clarifying questions. Make connections among the characters.

How do each of the characters demonstrate an internal and external cultural conflict?

What evidence is there for WHY they are WHO they are? What are the catalysts for change?

Why is the film titled Crash? Is there a literal reason and a metaphorical reason for the title? Please explain.

Throughout the film, the director focuses on stop signs and stop lights multiple times. Why do you think this is?

What social issues or social problems did you identify in Crash? How were they represented?

Which stereotypes does this film challenge? How?

Which character(s) did you identify/agree with most? Why?

Who are the protagonists in this film? Why would you qualify them as the “good guys”?

Your assignment is to synthesize at least three to five sources and your own observations to defend, challenge, or qualify the statement that America still provides access to the American Dream. This question requires you to integrate a variety of sources (3–5) into a coherent, well-written argumentative essay. Your argument should be central; the sources and your observations should support this argument.

October 22 2014

  • ENTRY TASKS

  • Grab Springboard book

  • On the back of your image from “Worlds Collide”

  • Identify how Iyer juxtaposes 1) images of wealth and success vs images of struggling to achieve (in paragraph two) and 2) the expectation of freedom from a police state vs the reality of cultural restrictions (in paragraph five).

  • Write a response to the prompt on page 52: To what extent does one’s background affect his or her perception of a given situation? For example:

  • The new arrivals to America in Pico Iyer’s “Where Worlds Collide” are less affected by their new surroundings than they are by their own expectations of the land and promise that awaits them. Iyer describes the “unending cacophony” (p6) of sounds and the “opportunities [that] are swirling dizzily, promiscuously” (p2) within the newcomers’ vision. Even so, the barrage of colors and noise do not suggest that they are going any where but the “Land of Opportunity,” a phrase whose idea is repeated at least four times. This allusion to the “Promised Land,” (p1) a biblical place that beckoned God’s chosen people, is synonymous with America, and is referenced as a new life they can “claim” in the “The City of Angels.” So in spite of images of overwhelming transportation options (p2), overpriced snacks (p4), and overzealous sales pitches (p2), the new arrivals “await” something; their expectations of the opportunities are not even squelched as they move into their new home. Iyer’s piece strongly suggests that expectations are a part of one’s background, and in this case, expectations are enough to hide otherwise daunting visions from one’s experience.
