Provide a copy of the article in your submission. If this article is on a newspaper you may scan the article for the class and instructor to review and attach it next to your review.
Please follow these instructions in detail as you will be evaluated in your ability to perform the following:
1. Come up with a title for your article review paper. This title should reflect the focus of your review and NOT the title of the article. Decide between a declarative title, descriptive title or interrogative title. Write your cover page properly. Ensure that you follow APA guidelines for your paper. If you should have any questions about APA format, you are encouraged to use the APA resources available in the course.
2. Write the introduction of your review. The introduction of the article review will have the identification sentence. It will also mention the central themes of the article and the arguments and claims of the author. You also need to state the author’s thesis. Sometimes, the thesis has multiple points. The thesis may not be clearly stated in the article, so you may have to determine the thesis yourself.
Don’t: make statements in the first person (“I”).
Do: give an overall impression of the article using the 3rd person and a formal, academic style.
Summarize the article. Express the main points, arguments, and findings of the article in your own words, referring to your summary for assistance. Show how the article supports its claims. Make sure to include the article’s conclusions. This may be done in several paragraphs, although the length will depend on requirements established by your instructor or publisher.
Don’t: cover specific examples, statistics, or background information familiar to experts in the field.
Do: capture the main points of each section, as space allows.
Write your critique. Use your outline of opinions to write several paragraphs explaining how well the author addressed the topic. Express your opinion about whether the article was a clear, thorough, and useful explanation of the subject. This is the core of your article review. Evaluate the article’s contribution to the field and the importance to the field. Evaluate the main points and arguments in the article. Decide if the author’s points help her argument. Identify any biases. Decide if you agree with the writer, then provide sufficient support as to why or why not. End by suggesting which audiences would benefit from reading the article.
Don’t: fill your review with a long list of unrelated critiques.
Do: tie your grievances and praise together into a coherent argument, forming your own thesis.
Conclude the article review. In a paragraph, summarize the main points of the article, as well as your opinions about its significance, accuracy, and clarity. If relevant, also comment on implications for further research or discussion in the field.
Proofread. Reread the review. Look for grammar, mechanics, and usage mistakes. Make sure to cut any extra, unneeded information.
