A critique of two articles involving testing/experimentation on animals. (2 separate critiques of two different articles, in one document, so basically one critique filling the first two pages of the document, and the second critique filling the last two pages of the document for a total of 4 pages) In addition to a original assessment and response to the articles, I want the essay to answer, at some point, the three questions listed below. Explain what is at stake in the piece. What, in other words, is opposed to what, and why, according to the writer (implicitly, explicitly, or both), and why does the writer think it matters? Determine what the reading seems to wish to accomplish, which is not always the same thing as that which it explicitly argues. (THE PITCH, THE COMPLAINT, and THE MOMENT). Try to figure out what the consequences of the piece might be. That is, if we think in the way that the reading suggests, what might follow? What might we gain? What might we lose? Organizing the Critique (in 3 – 4 paragraphs) Paragraph 1 (INTRO)— title and author of the article you are critiquing brief overview / summary of article PITCH, COMPLAINT, MOMENT Thesis—your assessment / evaluation of the article Paragraphs (2 and 3)—(BODY) QUESTIONS and POINTS TO CONSIDER FOR THE EVALUATION OF YOUR PIECE What are the aims of the work? Were the aims achieved? Evaluate the means by which the author has accomplished his or her purpose (aim): If the purpose is to inform, has the material been presented clearly, accurately, with order and coherence? If the purpose is to persuade, look for evidence, logical reasoning, contrary evidence How well does the evidence in the piece seem to support its claims? How well does the writer explain her reasons for saying the evidence means what she says it does? What types of evidence or persuasion are used? Has evidence been interpreted fairly? What about the subject matter is of current interest? What are the piece’s strengths and weaknesses? Final Paragraph (CONCLUSION)—your final thoughts on the matter, the article, the subject. This is a good place to discuss what the consequences of the piece might be. That is, if we think in the way that the reading suggests, what might follow? What might we gain? What might we lose? Essay Requirements: MLA format and Works Cited page (including in text citations). Create a citation for the article you are critiquing. Each critique should be about 2 pages long and roughly 750 words. Please submit BOTH critiques as ONE document—separate essays, but one document.
