Applying Adult Learning Theory through a Character Analysis
Baskas, Richard S.
Online Submission
The purpose of this study is to analyze the behavior of a character, Celie, in a movie, 'The Color Purple," through the lens of two adult learning theorists to determine the relationships the character has with each theory. The development and portrayal of characters in movies can be explained and understood by the analysis of adult learning theories which were conducted. Research was conducted through the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) system, and seven peer-reviewed articles were located for this purpose. A literature review of these articles determined their relevance in the study as well as the relationship between the two theorists. Analysis revealed that the character exhibited traits that matched the two theories where Bandura's theory seemed more prominent of the two.
