Article Critique

You are required to locate, read, and critique an article on an advanced technology used in corrections’ facilities to reduce the likelihood of contraband being introduced into jails and prisons. Some suggested topics are found in the Unit VI Lesson.

The first major element of this assignment is, of course, the selection of a topic that is appropriate for the course or the audience. Next, you should identify the premise(s) of your argument in support of the article or refuting what the article purports. The next step is to apply a proper analysis, which is predicated upon some knowledge of the topic, and a review of literature containing contravening arguments made by other researchers or experts. This is followed by putting forth your critical evaluation of the premise(s) of the article under review and supporting your position supported by the literature. Some of the questions you could ask include the questioned listed below.

What biographical data about the author of the article is important?
What are the purpose, tone, and format of the article?
How can the work be interpreted?
Based upon your review of the literature, is there any information in the article that is inaccurate or incomplete?
In what way was the article successful, or did the author succeed in what he or she was trying to accomplish?
How does the author fail? What did you find in your review of the literature that brings you to that conclusion?
Are there any historical, psychological, geographical, gender, racial, cultural, religious, or sexual considerations that have an impact on the article?

  3. Next paragraph. Discuss the sources upon which the author bases his/her book. What research materials did he or she use?
  4. Last paragraph. Assess the book. DO NOT tell me whether or not you like it or found it interesting, but tell me how successful the author was in achieving his/her objective.

Writing a Book Precis

Instructions for Writing a Book Precis
Writing a book precis is a different task than writing a book review. The most important aspect
of a book precis is its brevity and concise writing. The following information will be required for
writing a book precis for this course:
1) The precis will be limited to one-page. Normal page margins (1-inch) will be used and
text size will be 12-pt., single-spaced.
2) The precis will include three sections: A) Author’s argument, 2) Support for Argument,
and 3) Evaluation and conclusion.
3) The author’s argument should encompass the overall argument of the book. Why did
the author write the book? What point was the author trying to make to the reader?
4) When writing the Support for Argument section, the student should be very concise in
their writing. Take the author’s argument and explain how the author supported that
argument in the book. Don’t retell parts of the book. This section requires you to look
at the big picture and determine the author’s overall approach to convincing the reader
of their argument.
5) The final section, Evaluation and Conclusion, requires the student to evaluate whether
or not the author’s writing convinced you of their argument. This section should be
brief, concise, and leave no doubt in a reader’s mind as to the value of the book.
The written book precis should be limited to one page. If, after writing your precis, your paper
is longer than one page, you must edit the paper to tighten the narrative and limit the writing
to your strongest arguments and statements.
