Article Summary and Critique Suggested Guidelines

The summary and critique should have three parts:

1. A concise statement of the thesis of the article.

2. A summary of the contents of the article. Track the logical flow of the article (assuming there is one).

3. A critique of the validity of the thesis. Include a dicussion of the evidence used by the author. Express your own judgment on the strengths and weaknesses of the article's argument and conclusion.

Some thought is expected. Good writing is appreciated. Correct grammar is required.
