Article review

Find and read an article in the media or a video clip that reports the results of a scientific study. write a one-page critical review of the article. The review should answer each of the five questions. You must cite your source. If it is a website, please make sure you put the entire web address. Remember you are evaluating critically, not just summarizing. See the examples below the grading rubric: Where: Where did this article/Web page appear? Is this reasonable? Is the publishing entity respectable/responsible?

Who: Who wrote/published the articleNVeb page? What are their credentials? Are the credentials appropriate for their argument? When: Is this current information? If yes, do you think it will stand the “test of time’? If no, is it outdated or is it classic? What: What argument is/are the author(s) making? Is it logical? Based on what you know, is it reasonable? What evidence is given to support the argument? Can you think of evidence to refute it?

How was the supporting/refuting evidence collected? Is this credible? What kind of evidence do you think needs to be gathered to test the argument? Did the author(s) do this?

Summarize the quality of the article (it does not have to be a “good” article in your opinion), and whether you consider this to be a worthwhile and trustworthy article. Did you think it was biased? Could the author have underlying motives? What do you think? Is it valid?
