Critical Reviews



Assignment-1 Portfolio Assignment-1 Portfolio by Critical Reviews You will develop a portfolio of resources by writing five critical reviews. A critical review requires you to summarise and evaluate an article, and find additional articles to support your evaluation. Each critical review should include an introduction, a summary, a critique, a conclusion and references. Each critical review should be 400-500 words. The articles to evaluate will be provided on the course website. Introduction In the introduction, you should identify the thesis, or aim of the article. You should also provide an overview of your critique. In other words, is your critique mostly positive, negative or a mix of both? Summary Use the SQ3R method to summarise the article: Survey/scan the article and identify the main topics from the headings and the first sentence of each paragraph Use listed aims, goals or objectives to ask yourself what am I about to learn? Read Actively, e.g., by reading aloud After each paragraph, look away and repeat the key aspects; and After you have read a section, paraphrase the section using reporting verbs, e.g., Lee argues that… Critique To critique the article, you should discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the article: Evaluate the significance, the methodology, the arguments, and the style used in the article, Find at least one other reference that supports or refutes the central theme of the paper, Make recommendations for improving the article. You do not need to evaluate mechanics such as grammar or spelling errors. The following table should help focus your evaluation (UNSW, 2014). Consideration Possible focus questions Significance & contribution to the field What is the author’s aim? To what extent has this aim been achieved? What does this text add to the body of knowledge? (This could be in terms of theory, data and/or practical application) What relationship does it bear to other works in the field? What is missing/not stated? Is this a problem? Methodology or approach (this usually applies to more formal, research-based texts) What approach was used for the research? (e.g., quantitative or qualitative, analysis/review of theory or current practice, comparative, case study, personal reflection etc…) How objective/biased is the approach? Are the results valid and reliable? What analytical framework is used to discuss the results? Argument and use of evidence Is there a clear problem, statement or hypothesis? What claims are made? Is the argument consistent? What kinds of evidence does the text rely on? How valid and reliable is the evidence? How effective is the evidence in supporting the argument? What conclusions are drawn? Are these conclusions justified? Writing style and text structure Does the writing style suit the intended audience? (e.g., expert/non-expert, academic/non-academic) What is the organising principle of the text? Could it be better organised? Example Critical Review Example Self-Evaluation Complete and submit the self-evaluation form with your portfolio.
