In this guided activity, you’ll walk through the answers you submitted for Assignment 1: Finalized Writing Plan and expand on them by re-reading and re-evaluating your selected reading. Remember, writing is a continuous process—it’s important to re-explore the materials so that you can write the most effective essay you can write this term. You’ll also pull additional quotes and paraphrases and develop summarizations that will be used to further support your points. Finally, you’ll apply your instructor’s feedback from the Assignment 1 submission to this assignment, which will prepare you for your Assignment 2: Critical Analysis Essay submission in Module 8.

 

Planning for Assignment 2, Milestone 1

First, you should re-read your selected article and jot down any new ideas or reactions you have to the reading. Then open up the Word document that you submitted for the Writing Plan. (You can return to 5-1 to download another version of the document.) Look over your instructor’s comments and consider how you could have improved your answers to any of the questions. Also think about how your answers might change now that you have had some time to step away from the reading.

Constructing Assignment 2, Milestone 1

Answer the following questions to help you construct a draft of your Critical Analysis essay. 

 

1. After re-reading your selected article, write a 3-4 sentence overview of the work, briefly describing main points and your thoughts about the writing. Include the author’s name and title of the article in this overview. These sentences will be part of your Introduction.
