Project #80841 - project 4

 I am asking you to write a 1150-1300 word critical review of Daniel  Coyle’s article, “The Sweet Spot."

, I am asking you to do the following: 

●summarize his project in his terms (use and cite his terms, ideas, and evidence to convey his arguments);

● quote and analyze key words and passages from the text; and

● assess the uses and limits of his argument. Although you are sharing your assessment of Coyle’s argument, resist praising or criticizing Coyle’s  argument in sweeping ways. Rather, assess the uses and limits of his argument and/or approach. For  instance, instead of writing, “Coyle writes a great article” or “Coyle writes a terrible article,” this  assignment asks you to consider which aspects of his article are useful (Coyle’s ideas about practice  seem especially relevant for …) and which aspects of his article might be limited (However, Coyle’s  ideas about practice do not seem applicable in the case of …). For more insight into how to  accomplish an effective critical review, see the sample critical reviews posted under “Readings and  Resources.” You can use these as models for your critical review.  Questions to Help Guide You Consider the following questions as you develop your critical review: 

● What is Coyle’s main argument/claim?

● What evidence does he draw on?

● Does Coyle have any sub­claims (smaller arguments)?

● What are his aims?

● What methods does he use in developing his project?

● What are the key terms, phrases, and sentences in his argument? ● What is the context/occasion for his argument?

● What are the potential uses of his argument?

● What are some possible limitations of his argument?

●What questions does he raise? What questions does the text raise for you?

 

Integrating Evidence and Citing the Evidence Integrate evidence into your critical review by effectively incorporating quotes and paraphrases using data, quotes, paraphrase and 

for example:data or quotes (Middle of sandwich): evidence Slices of bread Top of bread: This is where I introducing evidence I situate evidence for my readers I offer context/background Bottom of bread: This is where I explicate why I’ve included that particular evidence I make it clear to readers what they’re going to get from this quote Sometimes this happens at the top layer too.

paraphrase

Enables you to succinctly draw on another’s point When is it preferable to quoting? When you’re more interested in the substance than the style of the source material Specific moment in text example

 

summury.

Condenses large amounts of material into less Enables you to draw briefly on others’ work Tends to be interpretive Not just providing totally objective data Presenting your take on this author’s view A critical evaluation Positions your argument Ex: Transported to a foreign landscape, a young girl’s house lands on and kills the first person she meets; she then teams up with three strangers who together bring about the death of the victim’s sister. (--Wizard of Oz) Unlike paraphrase, summary is much shorter

 

 You should choose a citation method  with which you would like to gain more familiarity and/or that seems most relevant for your future  pursuits. Include “Works Cited” or “References” at the end of your work listing Coyle’s article (if  you use any other texts, which you do not have to, cite those as well).  Your Readers Imagine that your readers are interested in questions about expertise, but are perhaps  unfamiliar with Coyle.  Grading Criteria An excellent project will meet the following criteria, showing that you can:

● summarize Coyle’s project in his terms

●effectively use Coyle’s text to support and develop your own argument

●effectively integrate evidence in the form of quotes and paraphrases

● employ scholarly conventions for citing sources, including in­text citations and references

● recognize the uses and limits of Coyle’s argument

● organize your review clearly

● revise deeply as well as edit carefully

● include an effective title
