Hurricane Katrina Current Lecture Tips For Writing Arguments  Arguments should not be: o Too obvious o Too broad o Too simplistic or one-sided Notes on Analyzing Film and Television  A film is a representation of reality, it is not reality itself. A film can tell you something about the way that some people in a society view the world  A film is not direct evidence for the way things are in reality  It’s not that film is fiction and not real. It can reflect narratives that are more real in their consequences than the literal truth Key Terms  Claims: Assertions that support your argument. They are not evidence, but conclusions drawn from evidence “IU is a prestigious university”  Warrants: Provides the logical connection between claims and evidence when that connection isn’t obvious Evidence: Examples, facts, statistics upon which your claims are based These notes represent a detailed interpretation of the professor’s lecture.
