This assignment requires the deconstruction of an article into its primary elements, namely:
· The Research Question;
· The Thesis;
· The Claims or argument;
· The Evidence or supporting facts; and,
· The Conclusion(s).
Locate the elements by annotating with the “highlight” tool and/or using the Comments tool within Microsoft WORD to provide remarks in the margins.
Briefly critique the article by identifying both its strong elements and those that were less compelling.
Finally, assess this resource’s utility breaking it down through this deconstruction process and understand the argument and facts that the author used to support his/her claims. The critique may be written at the bottom of the article itself or provided in a separate WORD document. The critique should be no longer than a single double-spaced written page.
