EWRT1A The Mask You Live In by Jennifer Siebel Newsom Documentary Analysis


Question Description

you will write a 3-paragraph summary-response, based on the documentary The Mask You Live In.

This assignment is informal, meaning I will not be picky about grammar or sentence structure. Instead, I will be looking for the quality of your ideas and your critical and creative engagement with the text. Use this time to practice writing without fear. Try out some of the rhetorical moves (i.e. the templates) provided in They Say, I Say. Notice what the templates do to your writing and how they help move your thinking along. Try out new ideas, or ask questions without feeling like you have to arrive at a point or thesis. Simply use writing to explore your thinking here!


PARAGRAPH 1: Using the writing guidance in chapter 1, 2, & 3 of They Say, I Say ("They Say" and "Her point Is" and "The Art of Quoting"), write a fully developed summary paragraph of the film, The Mask You Live In. If you took good notes during the film, you might try to include a quote from the film. Feel free to practice using the templates they provide for you in They Say, I Say, or create your own.

PARAGRAPH 2: In paragraph 2, respond using one or more of the templates in "Three Ways to Respond: Yes/No/Okay, but" and/or "Distinguishing What You Say From What They Say." Try to include a quote to help you articulate your point.

PARAGRAPH 3: In paragraph 3, make your point in paragraph 2 relevant by using one of the templates in "So What? Who Cares?" Does this issue matter to you or someone you love? What is at stake? Where do you see the effects of hyper-masculinity? How has it affected your life?

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
