• The review should be written in APA format- double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 font
• There should be a cover page, 2 pages for the review, and a reference page (if you use any references from other articles or your text book, please put them as a reference)
• Assignment will be uploaded to Turn-it-in
*The assignment will not be accepted if the article is over 4 pages to include the cover and the reference page.
The article review should consist of the following five sections:
1. An APA citation of the article you chose at the top of the page.
Baber, C. R., Cooper, J. E., Kurtts, S., & Vallecorsa, A. (2008). A model for examining teacher preparation curricula for inclusion. Teacher Education Quarterly, 35(4), 155.
2. Reason for choosing the article (introduction to the review)
Why this one? You can include a personal reaction to the issue/topic and the article itself here.
3. Brief summary of what the article is about
write this immediately after reading your article…when it is freshest in your mind. Summaries are difficult for most of us to do…so think of it as your “impression” of what it is about. This is not the place for detail after detail…that’s not a summary. A summary contains a balanced presentation of relevant ideas about the article so that…another person is able to tell what it is about. The suggested length is 1/2…much over a page and you are really beyond summarizing.
4. Assessment of the article
This is the core of the review. assess the article critically…which doesn’t necessarily mean negatively. “Critically” here means going beyond surface reactions, delving into the why’s of the author’s thoughts and writing. For instance, what did you think of the article…what about the main theses/purposes of the author? How well did the author(s) state and support their position? What do they use to do so? What else do you feel needs to be said or examined besides the points the author(s) made? What relationship did the article have to your area of study? Could this article help you in your line of work?
5. Conclusion of the review
This should be where you wrap it up and no more than a paragraph. Perhaps a final, overall summary of what you read and what more you would like or not like to see about the topic.
