Using your critical thinking skills to make the case for your thesis:
If you are challenging the filmmaker’s truth claim, then point out what is missing from the film, what is exaggerated, what is “biased” or “ideological.”
If you are supporting the filmmaker’s truth claim, then use your own experiences to reinforce the examples and evidence they give.
Use a quote from David Abram’s essay (required reading) to support your view or to present your opposition’s view.
