This week, you learned about active reading and analysis by looking more closely at a selected reading. In doing so, you uncovered ideas that may have been difficult to identify during your literal reading of the text.
To prepare for this assignment, please re-read your selected article and your notes from Module One.
Note: Remember to cite any works you use in your assignment. You will not be graded on the citations; the purpose is just to make certain you are practicing using citations.
Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:
- Discuss the context of your selected article, the author’s purpose, and the style and tone. What have you learned from this early analysis?
- How will a closer analysis of the author’s claim and the writing structure help you to learn more about your selected reading?
- Now that you have discussed the author’s purpose for writing the selected reading, do you think the author’s writing effectively achieves their purpose? What led you to this conclusion?
In total, the reflection should be three fully developed paragraphs (5–8 sentences each) in length (consider one section per question). Remember to refer to the rubric below to make sure you are fulfilling the requirements for this assignment.
Guidelines for Submission
Save your work in a Word document and include a page with references. It must be written in MLA or APA format. Use double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins.
