Justifying An Evaluation
ESSAY 2: JUSTIFYING AN EVALUATION (FILM)Word Count: 1000 word minimum not counting the works cited page or headings. (Essays shorter than this will see a deduction in the essay grade)Be aware:When an assignment is given, it will not include every aspect of what is expected. For example, my instructions don’t state that words must be spelled correctly or that periods must be included. These are also important elements when writing. A five-paragraph essay belongs in middle school and high school and not in college. An essay the length of 1000 words is too long for the basic format of the five-paragraph essay because paragraphs should not be pages long. In addition, as one advances through one’s education, essays get longer, and it is important to know how to organize an even longer essay. Could you imagine reading a 12 page essay containing only five paragraphs? It would get confusing and convoluted; the same thing happens on a smaller scale with 1000 words, so it is important to have at least eight paragraphs.· Write a 1000 word minimum evaluation (a review) of Night of the Living Dead. The paper will include a works cited page for the movie and an optional review from Roger Ebert Film Reviews or the documentary Birth of the Living Dead; no other sources will be used.
