F‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍or the third and final essay assignment, young scholars will write an evaluative essay conforming to these criteria and organizational suggestions (from Chapter 7, “Evaluation,” in Reading Critically, Writing Well Axelrod, Cooper, Carillo). 1) “Presentation of the subject”. An evaluation of the 2020 documentary Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution Title appears in italics. Must view at least three times. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFS8SpwioZ4 2) “Judgment of the subject”: Did the filmmakers achieve their objectives? Why would one recommend or not recommend this documentary? 3) “Presentation of reasons and support”: use your own perspective and credible sources. 4) “Consideration of readers’ objections and alternative judgments” (330) In evaluation, it is important to analyze the questions pursued in the documentary and to contemplate what the filmmakers were trying to achieve, and then make a judgment on how successful the documentary is in achieving those objectives. Read the entire “A Guide to Writing Evaluat‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ions” (324-336) Pay close attention to “Reflecting on Evaluation” (336), and the whole chapter to get a sense of how others approach this essay. “Consideration of readers’ objections and alternative judgments” (330): Start by identifying an objection or an alternative judgment you expect some readers to raise. Then figure out whether to concede or refute a likely objection or alternative judgment. You may be able simply to acknowledge it, but if the criticism is serious, consider conceding the point and qualifying your judgment. You might also try to refute an objection or alternative judgment by arguing that the standards you are using are appropriate and important. Young scholars will integrate research into the essay including, but not limited to other evaluations of the documentary; here’s a beginning point for research: Must be a minimum of 3 pages and‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ include a works cited page at the end.
