Synthesizing three articles

This discussion will help you develop the skills you need to synthesize several sources together. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

Step #1: Read any three (3) of the four articles listed below on the movie Bombshell (2019).

(You can find .pdf links to these reviews at the bottom of this discussion post as well.)

Step #2: Review the worksheet on creating a synthesis matrix (North Carolina State University) featured in this week’s Content.

Step #3: Complete a synthesis matrix for the three articles you’ve read. This includes:

  • Identifying at least three (3) main ideas or topics covered by the reviews (e.g., plot, actors, #MeToo, gender bias, etc.)
  • Taking notes on what the critics write about these main ideas (e.g., “Lee praises the plot as interesting…” and “Reed finds the plot too confusing…”)
  • Jotting down quotes that support your observations (e.g., “Lee writes, ‘The story has movie-goers at the edge of their seats the whole three hours…”)

Step #4: Identify at least two key issues or questions that are particularly problematic or controversial or striking or worthy of exploring. These would be issues/questions that can be supported by at least two of the articles. They may be points on which the critics agree or disagree, issues that weren’t adequately addressed, or ideas that are explored in the reviews (e.g., “What did the critics think about Colin Firth’s cameo?” or “Discussion of political bias in the movie’s portrayal of the vice president”). Ask yourself, what ideas/issues that are shared among the articles might be interesting to pursue further?

Step #5: Explain how these issues are played out in the reviews (1-2 sentences). What are the critics’ positions on these issues? What was stated/not stated? What other questions does this issue introduce? (For example, for “Why didn’t the critics recognize the cinematography?” you might write about how one critic barely mentioned the cinematography, while another stated how it was overrated, focusing more on the acting.)

Note that a sample response to this discussion, based on three reviews of Danny Boyle’s _Steve Jobs_, appears in the Content for this week.

Step #6: Post your matrix, your two issues/questions, and your 1-2 sentence analysis.
