Journal Critique Assignment Instructions

For each Journal Critique, you will evaluate and critique 1 research article from varying professional journals. The journal can be from any discipline that addresses a topic in higher education specific to the module assigned. All articles must be current (5 years or less). Each paper will include a title page, a reference page, and have a 225–250-word limit. Title page, in-text citations, and the reference page are NOT included in the word limit. Journal critiques consist of 3 parts (each part should be 1 paragraph only): Part 1 Summary Paragraph, Part 2 Analysis of Author’s Key Points, and Part 3 Personal Response. Specific to Part 3 Personal Response, personal pronouns are appropriate in this section only of the journal critique.

When composing your reviews, remember to use graduate professional writing. Do not begin with “This article is about…” Instead, open the review with a strong thesis statement and concisely summarize the author’s main points in the first paragraph. Using third person, state your personal reaction to the article in the final paragraph with insight for future use (“This author agrees/disagrees…” or “one can see that…”). Writing should contain introductory and concluding sentences that are concise, interesting, and focused.
