Using the tools of evaluation and analysis you learn throughout the course, you will critique three assigned articles. You will put your critiques of the articles into a paper of no more than two single-spaced pages which will be due before class on Wednesday 20 September (Posner – Article Critique #1). There is a worksheet available to you on Blackboard that should assist you in organizing your thoughts. A good article critique will provide a brief summary of the article, mention explicitly the articles methodological and analytical strengths and weaknesses, and suggest possible improvements with an explanation. When writing Article Critique #1 pay particular attention to research design.
