- Provide a brief, but thorough, summary of the article’s topic and argument. What point is the author trying to make? DO NOT use online summaries; that is plagiarism.
- Explain how the article relates to the themes and concepts covered in the current unit materials (lecture, assigned chapter, etc.). Discuss how the article illustrates/expands upon the major topics and ideas from the unit. Use specific key terms and concepts from the unit sources (assigned chapter, PowerPoint/lecture). This is the most important part of the assignment, and it is where most of the points will come from.
- Share your reaction to the reading. Was it successful in getting its point across, why or why not? Can you relate this to current events or personal experiences?
