Critical Response
The word critical has positive as well as negative meanings. You can write a critical essay that agrees entirely with the reading. The word ?critical? describes your attitude when you read the article. This attitude is best described as ?detached evaluation,? meaning that you weight the coherence of the reading, the completeness of its data, and so on, before you accept or reject it.
A critical response occurs whenever one judges decides, or solves a problem; in general, whenever one must figure out what to believe or what to do, and do so in a reasonable and reflective way. Reading, writing, speaking and listening can all be done critically or uncritically. Being capable of a critical response is crucial to becoming a close reader and a substantive writer.
It should include the following:
– Raise vital question and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;
– Gather and assess relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively
– Come to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;
– Think open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing, and assessing, as need be assumptions, implications, and practical consequences; and communicate effectively with other in figuring out solutions to complex problems; without being unduly influenced by others? thinking on the topic
For your essay, you will critique Gore?s argument in ?An Inconvenient Truth?. Outline carefully, deliberate determination of whether one should accept, reject, or suspend judgment about Gore?s claim, and the degree of confidence with which one should accept or reject it (note: this means not only saying whether the claims should be accepted or rejected, but to what degree and most importantly, why). Please note that you will need to develop your own unique thesis based upon your overall conclusions. Your essay will need to involve the careful acquisition and interpretation of information and use of it to reach a well-justified conclusion.
Remember that a critical response employs not only logic but broad intellectual criteria such as clarity, credibility, accuracy, precision, relevance, depth, breadth, significance and fairness.
The difference between feelings and facts is simple?it does not matter what you believe about this film or book; what matter is what you can prove it. Drawing upon evidence found in the text itself, in critical discussion of the work, etc.
Criticism does not mean you have to attack the work or the author; it simply means you are thinking critically about it, exploring it and discussing your findings.
The critical response essay usually employs a serious and objective tone. Use a ?claims and evidence? approach. Be specific about the points you are making and back up those points with evidence that your audience will find credible and appropriate. Using evidence from the text itself is often your best option.
