Minor 1 Jamika Minor ENG 112 Professor Chiles December 2018 Outline THESIS: In the movie the pursuit of happiness, it illustrates a not-so-perfect scenario of rags to riches, as a man is facing challenges while chasing the American dream. I. There are different realities of how the American dream is represented in movies. A. The writer Kimberly Amadeo wrote an article about the different perceptions of the American Dream. B. Two different narratives are presented in both films the Great Gatsby and the movie Heist but they both branch from the main point of the American dream. C. Whether it’s the pursuit of happiness, wealth or peace of mind most scholars can attest that the idea has taken on many definitions. II. Crediting the founding fathers for the inception of the American dream is a key element in pursuing it. A. Carl Cannon presents in his book the roots of Jefferson's powerful phrase and shows how it is embraced by powerful leaders for centuries.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
