JOURNAL CRITIQUE

 

Journal Critique Assignment: This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade.

 

Choose an article from an academic journal at the library, or get one through an Internet search engine. Pick an article based on one of the leadership topics covered in the particular section covered (i.e. An Article on Organizational Structure).

 

Your job in the review is to simply describe the thesis and evaluate its persuasiveness.

The review should do two things:

 

A)     Summarize the article in a fair, complete, and balanced manner. To do that describe:

 

    • What the article tries to argue or what the author is trying to convince you of.

 

    • Describe how the author defended or justified their argument (what data, information, ideas, theories, etc. did he/she use)

 

    • Describe the conclusions or findings of the article.

 

NOTE: After reading your summary, I should be able to describe to anyone else what is argued or explained in the article.

 

B)     Critically Evaluate.

o   Tell me what you think of it.

o   What are its strengths and weaknesses?

o   Be sure to fully explain your statements (e.g., don’t just say the article was creative, explain why you came to that conclusion).

o   Discuss the implications of the content on the practice of criminal justice.
