Make sure that you are familiar with writing Summary & Critique Essays
Please write a Summary & Critique essay on the attached article “why do we need a market for human organs”
You are required to do 1 Page of Pre-writing followed by 3 pages of rough Draft as separate documents.
The pre-writing is like a brainstorming practice to get ideas of what you want to talk about in the rough draft, like a sketch draft so it’s ok to sound a little casual and no quotations are needed in the pre-writing. (Pre-writing should be done before starting to work on your rough draft)
please carefully follow instructor note:
In writing this critique, develop both an introduction and a conclusion as well as the main body of the critique. See particularly the guidelines for writing box in chapter 5, as well as the model Summary & Critique essay also in Chapter 5 (I have attached chapter 5)
- To begin, you will first need to summarize the entire article (remember to cite it!).
- Next, craft a thesis that states the extent to which you agree or disagree with the author and that states your overall evaluation of the article.
- Organize and develop the body of your evaluation around specific points:
- State the point of evaluation as a clear topic sentence.
- Cite specific examples in the selection that illustrate this observation.
- Discuss these examples in two or three follow-on sentences in one paragraph or at greater length in two or more paragraphs.
- In preparing to write, consider the following questions. Your responses may help you to formulate elements of your critique:
- To what extent do you agree or disagree with the points in the article?
- What underlying assumptions has the author built his or her claims on? And are those assumptions valid?
- What is the purpose of the article: to persuade, to inform, to entertain?
- How well does the author succeed in his or her purpose?
- What is the tone of the article and does it serve the author’s purpose well?
- What assumptions does the author make about the readers, their belief system, their values, their knowledge of the topic?
- Can you detect any bias in the author?
- What issues are ignored?
- Assess the quality of the author’s evidence.
- Does the author establish strong ethos, and if so, how?
- How does the author exhibit and pathos and logos, and is this done well?
The summary and all quotations and paraphrases must be documented with in-text and on your Works Cited page. Only MLA format is allowed.
