Critical Analysis 1 and 2
For each Critical Analysis, you must follow this four (4) step process:
-1- The first step is to select one (1) specific chapter/reading from the Fedorak Global Issues text. Your selected reading will serve as the focus for your critical analysis. It is recommended that you select a reading based on your personal interests to expand your understanding of cross-cultural experiences.
-2- The second step is to find a suitable location and once ready and settled, begin to carefully read your selection and take notes, utilizing the guidelines in the introduction.
-3- The third step is to begin to create your critical analysis. On a separate document, be sure to type your name, GS 2010, Fall 2020, and the appropriate Critical Analysis Number (1 or 2) at the top. Copy and paste the following questions, and provide responses for each:
- What is the title of your reading?
- How many pages is the reading?
- What country or countries are being represented/discussed in the reading?
- Why did you choose this reading? What was your rationale?
- In your own words, describe your thoughts, perceptions, and insights about the reading.
- What specifically did you like or dislike about the reading?
- What you are taking away? How might you use or apply this information in the future?
Your Critical Analysis should:
– be double spaced, using 12 point font
– should reflect formal writing, so there should be no slang or use of contractions
– should be well written, with proper spelling, syntax, punctuation, and grammar
– should run 1,000 to 1,250 words
-4- The fourth and final step for your Critical Analysis assignment 3 or 4, is to upload your document to the corresponding folder in D2L. Be sure that your document is uploaded in either Microsoft Word or PDF format. Follow the due dates for each unit. These two Critical Analysis assignments will help cultivate a better understanding and appreciation of cross-cultural experiences, global citizenship, and skills in reading, critical thinking, and writing.
