Please write the critique as a traditional paper, including a thesis statement and body paragraphs with supporting points to your argument. Please also make sure to feature critique, not summary.
Summary writing is when you demonstrate understanding. Articulating the authors arguments, for example, is a summary. Listing the methods used are also a summary. Some students focus on demonstrating they understand the article and stop there. Thats a useful skill, but critique requires more understanding. Critique occurs when you question the points made by the author. You have to know what the points are, so in a sense, summary is required for critique. You push further and argue or defend the choices made by an author. There are several aspects of a research piece you can critique, but Ill provide an example of theory, method, and overall critique.
Do you buy that argument? What if social media is helping their grades and concentration in some way, like talking to classmates to clarify something, or it helps them with anxiety from being away from social media. Next is critiquing my methods. Say I gathered social media use data and grade data from one communications class compromised of mostly females. Can I say that my findings apply to all people? Why or why not? What if I looked at grades as the scores on tests? Would that limit those that are, for say, bad test takers? Thats a critique of a way of measuring ones concept. Finally, you can offer an overall critique, saying what you would do differently to improve the study. Say I did the study above. Id say critique the piece and say test grades are not reflective of the whole grading process, and you cant generalize results when you have one class of mainly women. Males might behave differently with social media and their grades.
