How would you describe pastiche as it relates to both film and the postmodern society.
The postmodern society, in opposition to the modernity of the prior years, focuses on the rejection of “high-art” for consumer culture but at the loss of individuality and reality. Pastiche is the imitation of a unique style but without satire, and within postmodern society, it is indicative of the loss of originality and can be explored through postmodern director Quentin Tarantino.
How would you correct this student's sentence: This Tuesday I have a test that is going to be hard so I am studying tonight and re-reading my textbook.
You could suggest to the student that they use a comma after "Tuesday," to introduce the sentence, a comma before the conjunction "so" since it is separating two independent clauses. You could also suggest to change the word hard to "difficult." The final sentence after corrections should read: This Tuesday, I have a test that is going to be difficult, so I am studying tonight and re-reading my textbook.
