Write about hip hop video study,just use the sources in that study.
For much of your education you were probably rewarded for descriptive writing (“they said…”). You were rewarded for simply reading comprehension and might even have been penalized for offering up your ideas! Hopefully in college you have been encouraged/required and rewarded for critical writing (“I say…”). To help you see the differences between these two types of writing.
So what do I expect you to do for this class? Your assignment is to write a two page essay that is a critical analysis of ANY of the assigned empirical articles from this semester. The essay should use standard essay format with proper citation (APA or ASA) and proper grammar/mechanics. Your essay will be critical in that you will be demonstrating that you can apply the concepts learned in class to a “real” research project. This paper is worth 20 points. Here is a repeat of the document from the beginning of the semester which explains what kinds of things you should be questioning as you read..
Use this document as a brainstorming guide, NOT as a template for your paper. Please note that I have read all the assigned articles, so while you should include a brief overview of the article, the emphasis should be on BRIEF.
Rubric for critical analysis paper:
An introduction that contains a thesis statement. (2.5 points)
Proper organization and mechanics. (5 points)
The body of your paper contains at least 3 critical points about the article whether that be indicating the article’s strengths, weaknesses or a combination thereof. Appropriate vocabulary and concepts are used in that critical analysis. (12 points)
A conclusion (2.5 points)
