Journal-Article Critique from the Therapeutic Recreational Journal

What is a critique? A critique is NOT a “book report.” It exceeds summarizing the content of a book in that it provides a critical estimate of the work. In part, this may depend upon comparing the work with accepted standards, but also demands a personal critical response on the part of the reviewer to the work of the author. Practice in such critical analysis of material read will aid the reviewer in becoming a more discerning consumer of ideas and professional writings.
Outline for a Critique A written critique should include these four essential areas: a. Identification of the material read; Simply use title of article and authors name. b. Abstract of the major ideas of the work (1) The research problem, the methods of research, and the major findings. (2) Analyze the work to identify the major idea(s)/concepts of the author.Specifically identify the major play concepts of the work. (3) Find the conclusion(s) and recommendations, paying special attention to the issues and problems involved.
Critical Evaluation of major ideas: What terms did the author define? What were the author’s definitions clear)? What are the author’s conclusions? Examine the logic supporting the author’s offered and the conclusions reached? Has the author substantiated the ideas through logical reasoning; flawless? Were the supporting arguments adequate? Were the premises such that any person would have logically ceded to them?
Implications: either from ideas given in this author’s work or from ideas developed on your own in the critical response to this article, what, then will be the implications of this work?
