Students should write a book review focusing on the author’s thesis, how the author supported the thesis, how the author framed the discussion of the topic, what the student learned about the topic from reading the book, and how this interaction with the topic is similar or different to the other methods included in the exam.

Section 3: TV/Film Review
Many films and tv shows are based on historical events, people, and topics/themes. Students should pick a tv show, film, or documentary to review based on the topic of choice. The accompanying list will be helpful, however, students are not limited to these works. Students should write a review focusing on how the tv show or film frames the topic and how this interaction with the topic is similar or different to the other methods included in the exam. While historical accuracy is an important factor to consider, it should not be the focus of this section of the exam.

Instead, students should think critically about how tv and film shapes understanding of the historical themes, people, and events by how their topic is portrayed and interpreted. The tv/film review should be 2-3 pages in length.
