Zip proposal

This year I plan to study the art of writing a review.  Not only that but I will compare the way to write a book review to the way you write a film review.

The big question I am planning on answering is: What are the key aspects in writing a book review compared to a movie review?

I chose this because I really like reading so if I can tie that into writing English maybe a will have more motivation to work harder.  I also am really curious on how to right a review, and I am always more interested in something if I have no clue what it is and how to do it.  I guess you can say that my curiousity runs me around.

As you might have guess I know nothing when it comes to writing a review so I am really starting from ground zero and I get to see how far I will progress.  Which I think is really cool.  I hope I gain the ability to not only enhance my skills as a writer but also enhance my abilities to understand and comprehend books and films to the point where I can write a good review on them.

How I will try to understand the art of writing reviews for books and movies is to look at famous reviewers and their works.  Not only will they be one of the main sources of my research but I will also learn the how they write reviews and study the basic ideas of writing reviews from their works.

To demonstrate how to write a review; I will most likely give a brief lesson on the key aspects of writing a review of a book and the key aspects of writing a review for a movie.  After the lesson I would show the two reviews I plan on writing and get my class to find the different aspects of each review.  To finish my presentation they would have to guess what I rated the book and movie I am choosing to watch and read on a scale of a hundred.  If this is two long of a presentation, I could probably think of something else.
