Q. Response Paper
What is a Response Paper?
A response paper is a written “reaction” to something the writer has read, viewed, or listened to. But let’s get even more specific. To do that, let’s use a fictional assignment: a response to the movie Citizen Kane. -- Taken from Response Papers
WHAT IS A GOOD RESPONSE PAPER?
Think of a good response as a carefully constructed, specific argument about a particular point of the film, book, play, or musical medium that you are reacting to. For example, you could write a response paper about how the realistic acting of Citizen Kane makes the film believable. Or about how the plot of Citizen Kane is so complicated that it hurts the film’s message. Like any good argument, it needs to be tightly organized. You need to explain, for instance, why the acting is so realistic by using clear examples from the movie (that means you need to know the movie, book, or song thoroughly). -- Taken from Response Papers
