Detailed Instructions: Your essay should consist of 3 to 4 typed, double-spaced pages.  See pp. 98-101 in your textbook for a sample essay that may be used as a model for this assignment.  Include these parts in your essay:


  1. Title  Catch the reader’s attention with a creative, relevant phrase. Note the sample essays’ titles.  Avoid an overly general title (examples: “Educational Standards” or “Gun Control”).  Title can also act as a “hook.”  Capitalize every major word in the title; do not capitalize “the,” “an,” or “a” unless it is the first word of the title.


  1. Introduction paragraph (no more than 10 lines)  Begin with an attention-getting “hook.”  Introduce the topic/issue of the video and explain why this issue concerns you. (Significance, the “So what?”)  Identify the context of the video: author, title, original source, audience, purpose. The first time you mention an author, use his or her full name; after that, use the last name only.


  1. Body paragraphs (4 to 6 body paragraphs total)  First body paragraph (= SUMMARY of the video – around 175 to 225 words)  Summarize the video concisely. Refer to the list of criteria on p. 90.  Identify the main idea and supporting points.  Remain objective and neutral.  Use quotations sparingly (if at all), use attribution tags, and document them according to MLA format.


 Transitional paragraph  State the thesis of your response (pp. 109-10), focusing on rhetorical critique (pp. 92-5), ideas critique (pp. 95-6), and/or reflection (pp. 96-8) or a blend (p. 98).


 Strong Response body paragraphs (2 to 4 body paragraphs)  Write these paragraphs according to your purpose and thesis.  You will be:  Analyzing and evaluating the video’s rhetorical strategies (rhetorical critique);  AND/OR  Responding to the video’s ideas by extending or challenging the argument (ideas critique);  AND/OR  Reflecting on the video by connecting it to your own beliefs and experiences (reflection).


  1. Conclusion paragraph (4-8 lines)  Provide closure for your discussion.  Avoid simply restating the video’s main idea. Instead, explain your current thinking about the topic or issue based on this video.  Also, identify areas you want to research more.


MLA documentation required for all quoted and paraphrased information:  Use sources responsibly. For help, review pages 546-560 in your textbook, “Skill 22.2: Know When and How to Use Summary, Paraphrase, and Quotation.”  Add attributive tags to separate your ideas from the author’s.  Include in-text citations and a Works Cited page.  For help, review pages 561-566 in your textbook, “Skill 23: Citing and Documenting Sources.”


Reminders:   You may use “I” in this essay if you wish to establish your credibility or knowledge about the issue, but do not use “I” as in “I think that …,” “In my opinion …,” “I believe …”.
