For each section, write a narrative including both summary and critique -
including judgment words and directly addressing strengths and weaknesses
. Does the abstract/summary of the article (question, methods used to
study it, and major findings) adequately describe the study?
. Is it appropriate in length (concise, clear): 100-150 words? Is this
an important topic/issue/question in reading today?
. IF not, save yourself time right now: select a new article! If yes,
identify the research type.
. Is there an introduction that states the question and previews the
findings? Does it catch readers\' attention and create interest?
3. Literature review / Theory & hypotheses
. Does the "lit review" adequately summarize (selecting the best
authors/references) what is known
about the question from past research?
. Do the authors present expectations for the current study?
. Do they make clear connections between these two by grounding their
new work in established theories from educational research or other
. Does the methods/plan section describe how the study was conducted
(including the treatment or intervention [if appropriate for the
research type], the data collected, and analysis tools used)?
. Is it thorough enough to enable other scholars to replicate the study?
. Is there a control of bias to avoid promoting a particular point of
view or favoring certain outcomes:
o Bias of design (evidenced in the way the groups are
selected/randomized [as with
a control group], treatments/measures are delivered and timed
(like pre-test & posttest) and outside factors controlled
(ensuring the results are actually a result of the treatment),
and appropriate measures (content and materials - selected to
ensure the validity of the study)
o Bias of evaluation (evidenced in the reliability of the measure,
o as reflected in the accuracy of the data collection and the
schedule for collection- often using multiple assessment
measures at multiple times)
. Bias of interpretation (evidenced in the statistical information -
usually in summary graphic(s) [charts, graphs, tables...] and
explanations of how they will fairly represent the results)
. Does the findings section provide a comprehensive report (using
tables & figures) of the study\'s findings?
. Does the accompanying explanation add to the readers\'/audiences\'
(consider your teacher "perspective") understanding?
Although this question applies to all sections, it is particularly
appropriate here to check for errors:
statistics, facts, or interpretations.
. Does the discussion/conclusions/recommendations section serve as a
summary to recap the study?
. Does it tie the findings back into the literature review, suggesting
directions for future research?
. Overall, is there balance among the sections of the article; in other
words, have some points or aspects of the study been overemphasized or
underemphasized? If so, suggestion specific revisions: where the
article should be expanded, condensed, or omitted?
. Finally, is the author\'s style professional/clear for the intended
audience? Now, do not merely substitute your style for the author\'s -
but consider your own as you revise and edit your own critique!
ImmigrationImmigration Illegal Immigration One of the most controversial political issues of today is that of illegal immigrants from Mexico. Illegal immigration into the United States is a problem that should be stopped, as it is unfair to both Americans and to the people of the country from which they illegally immigrated. It is thought that the majority of illegal aliens residing in the U.S. are Mexicans (Anderson 55). Roy Beck clarifies the situation by stating, The national consensus is that the Unite
The World Today Seems To Be Going Crazy: The Unabombers ManifestoThe world today seems to be going crazy: The Unabomber's Manifesto It was May 25th 1978, Terry Marker was on his usual patrol on campus at the University of Illinois. This earmark package, addressed to an engineering professor at Rensselaer from a material science professor at Northwestern, was found in a parking lot. What seemed like an insignificant misplaced parcel was about to start a reign of terror and the longest manhunt in U.S. history. Officer Marker retrieved the package and began to
Booker T. Washington:Up From SlaveryBooker T. Washington:'Up from Slavery The autobiography of Booker T. Washing titled Up From Slavery is a rich narrative of the man's life from slavery to one of the founders of the Tuskegee Institute. The book takes us through one of the most dynamic periods in this country's history, especially African Americans. I am very interested in the period following the Civil War and especially in the transformation of African Americans from slaves to freemen. Up From Slavery provides a great deal of in
The Beak Of The FinchThe Beak of the Finch The Bogus Logic of The Beak People who have served in the Armed Forces may be familiar with the expression, If you can't dazzle then with your brilliance, baffle them with your baloney. The Beak of the Finch uses such laughable logic, it is remarkable that anyone would believe it. The book does such a terrible job of presenting a case for evolution and history, that the only logical conclusion is that the book's true intent is to disprove it. Jonathan Weiner, The Beak of
Invisible ManInvisible Man According to Goethe, We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe. Despite the hyperbolic nature of Goethe?s statement, it holds some truth. Because of this element of truth, society looks to psychoanalysis as an important tool for understanding human nature. Furthermore, psychoanalytic criticism of authors, characters, and readers has a place in literary criticism that is as important as the place of psychoanal
Woodrow WilsonWoodrow Wilson Diseases need heroes: men or women who have triumphed despite the disease. For the child with polio, one could always point to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who campaigned on leg braces to become governor of New York and then president of the United States. For epilepsy, there is always Joan of Arc or Napoleon. The blind and deaf have Helen Keller. Woodrow Wilson provides a similarly inspiring story for both dyslexia and stroke victims--but the story of his last two years in office p
The Epistemology of Cindy Sherman: A Research Method for Media and CHumanities research is widely considered to be the sole province of academic scholars, yet avant-garde artists practise their own versions of humanities research. As critics, we tend to applaud the avant-garde for its anti-linear, anti-rational, anti-Enlightenment qualities, but we do so even as we continue to reproduce the same form of criticism, employing linearity, rationality, and the rhetoric of scientific realism. Avant-garde artists invent research methods by using media as research tools
Annotated Bibliography - Little Red Riding Hood Annotated Bibliography - Little Red Riding Hood In the tale Little Red Riding Hood By Charles Perrault points out that Children, especially attractive, well breed young ladies, should never talk to strangers, for if they do, they are going to end up facing a dilemma. For example: In his version of the tale, the wolf eats red and she dies. The ending in the story shows us females that we are weak and cannot stand up for themselves. The wolf in this case, is indirectly aiming towards the men's/
