Purpose: The goal of this assignment is to apply the concepts you’ve learned this semester to The Avengers (2012) movie. Task: In this 4- to 5-page, double-spaced paper, you will discuss the connections between The Avengers (2012) and the concepts in the text by clearly and thoroughly addressing the topics below.

This paper does not require a title page or abstract.     ◦       Discuss the periodic phases of development from Chapter 3 of your text. Briefly define and describe each phase and refer to the scene/s in the film where each phase occurs. Be specific in your discussion of how the phases unfold (i.e. is there primary and secondary tension? What phase do these concepts fall under?) ◦       Identify ”task”, ”maintenance”, and ”disruptive roles” from Chapter 5. Explain each type of role, how it is present in the film, and who takes on the role/s. ◦       Explain whether The Avengers are a ”group” or a ”team” (Chapter 6/7/9). How can you tell? Discuss the 4 Cs and describe how they are present in the film. Use specific scene/s from the film. ◦       Compare and contrast “defective” and ”effective” decision-making. Are one or both of these present in the film? What effect does decision-making have on The Avengers? Use specific examples to support your answer.
