Introduction 1. A lead-in sentence orientating the reader to the topic, this is a broad overview. 2. Thesis statement – the short answer to the question. It tells the reader what to expect from the rest the paper. To write you need a purpose. Without a purpose your essay has no direction. In analytical exposition, the thesis gives the writing purpose. 3. Having established a clear thesis, the writer must decide on a series of arguments that will support the thesis. This is a summary of the main points/arguments/ideas that will be elaborated on.
The 2006 documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” created by Al gore former vice president of America which focuses on the issue of global warming. Al gore has portray a bias option towards the negative effect of global warming. He ultimately believes that the effects of global warming are going to end the world as we now it if something is not done about global warming. He has done this through the use of appeal to authority, Pity fallacy and lastly has used gaps in silences in his story. Main Point 1 [P] – Point Write a topic sentence (statement)

This is exemplified at the start of the doco where the former vice president shows how high up he is. Main Idea 2 [P] – Point

This is done one time in the documentary when he shows how he had lost to George Bush on becoming president.
With this loss, Gore is trying to make it seem as if the battle that he had lost to Bush is linked to the battle that we are losing with the sustainability with our environment. Although it is true that he had lost his son tragically and his battle with Bush was a tough loss it does not support his bias that global warming is occuring Main Idea 3 [P] – Point Write a topic sentence (statement) [E+E] (Evidence/example/elaboration) [E+E] (Evidence/example/elaboration) [L] – Link
One more characteristic that has been used by Gore to support his bias that global warming is occurring is the use of gaps and silences. Al gore does not show and real figures in some of his diagram and drawing. He also silences any opinions on the opposing side of his argument saying that global warming is negative. This is how he has used gap and silence to create his bias opinion. Conclusion In the introduction your task was to move from the general message of the documentary to the specific, the techniques used to convey this message.
In the conclusion you move the opposite way, from your specific findings back to the general concerns of the discipline or field, to give the essay a well-rounded finish. You could follow the 3 Moves outline. 1. Findings 2. Overall Conclusion 3. Relation to wider Problem Al gore has obviously used a number of techniques to show his bias opinion on the negative effects with global warming. He has obviously showed a good argument but has left floors that account to his bias opinion. He has used techniques such as appeal to authority, gaps and silences and also pity fallacy.
Al gore has created a negative bias towards the effect of global warming. Your conclusion goes further than your introduction, because by now you have represented your evidence and can remind the reader of how that leads to your conclusion. Rather than just repeat from your introduction, try to summarise your main findings, selectively. And remember that the conclusion can move two steps further on from your findings, by asking: what do your findings mean? And what are the implications of your conclusion for the discipline. The conclusion is where you answer ‘so what’ question in your reader’s mind.
