To prepare for this assignment, please re-read your selected article and your notes from Module 1. Then, either using the MindEdge Notebook or a Word Document, answer the following questions:
- Who do you think your audience will be in your critical analysis essay? Describe this audience, and explain how they would benefit from any insights produced from your analysis of your selected article.
- Why is analysis so important for your selected reading? How will it help your audience understand the author’s goal in a clearer, more captivating way?
- After re-reading your article and notes from Module 1, what do you believe is your goal in analyzing your selected article? Will you provide additional context to help your audience understand the importance of the author’s goal, or will you use your essay as an opportunity to persuade your audience that the author’s goal is incorrect?
In total, the reflection should be three fully developed paragraphs (5-8 sentences each) in length (consider one paragraph per question). As you work on the journal, remember to refer to the assignment guidelines and rubric (click here) to make sure you’re fulfilling each critical element.
