Transcript of Critique Etiquette

Criticism Criticism: the scientific investigation of literary documents (Webster, 2012) Criticism is a disciplined examination of a created work.
The term is probably most familiar from the term critics, who are people that criticize movies and books.
Criticism involves three unique steps. Steps to Criticism: 1.) Summarize the text you are reading.
2.) Evaluate the text you are reading
3.) Analyze the text you are reading. Evaluation: Judging the
information of the work. Is the
argument valid? Summary: A brief explanation of the work, its thesis, its evidence, and its conclusion When it comes to analyzing an article there are three choices to make:
1.) I agree.
2.) I disagree.
3.) Something is missing.
You can only choose one of these options. After choosing one of the options the answer to "why" you picked that option becomes the thesis statement of your analysis Analysis: Breaking something into its component parts (Webster, 2012) This means that everything that was said in the article is as accurate as possible and that you agree with it completely.
This option occurs rarely in research. I agree Format for I Agree: The Intro tells the reader what the article said and what methods were used in the research/study. The Thesis says that the article is correct in everything.
The body offers evidence from the article.
The Conclusion ends with the next steps to further research or how the research can be applied to the world. This means that everything said in the article is completely wrong.
This option occurs rarely in research but a little more frequently than I agree. I Disagree Format for I Disagree The Intro states what the article says and what methods were used in the research/study. The Thesis Statement says the article is wrong in everything is says.
The body summarizes the evidence of the article and shows what is wrong with the information.
The conclusion presents how to prove the article completely wrong or the damage the erroneous work has done. Format for Something is Missing This means that when reading the article you felt that something else need to be added, or that there was another explanation for what the article said.
It is the most popular option for criticism The Intro states what the article is about and the methods used. The Thesis states what is missing from the research/study.
The body uses a summary to show the missing parts or alternative idea.
The conclusion states how to do research that will fix this problem. Something Is Missing It is your decision to:
Or want more Information. In the End But Just Remember
People are allowed to criticize you

AND ONLY CRITIQUE THE IDEAS NOT THE PERSON Criticism is about the facts not your reaction to them.
