CRITICAL BOOK REVIEW INSTRUCTIONS
A critique is more than a summary of the book, article, and/or chapter being reviewed. The emphasis is on a discussion and evaluation of the topic, not just a description. Further, it must be remembered that critical is not necessarily synonymous with bad or unfavorable. Critical reviews may be positive, negative, or a combination of both.
In Module/Week 4, you will submit a 5-page critical book review over the Laaser text. Three specific sections (Summary, Analysis, and Conclusion) will be required. Adhering to current APA format guidelines for in-text citations and references is required. View the instructions and grading rubric located within the Assignment Instructions folder in the course for specific expectations for this assignment. This assignment must be submitted no later than 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 4.Your critique must be 5â€“6 full pages of content and include the following 3 sections:
â€¢Summarize the issue/topic addressed. Explain why the author(s) think the issue/topic is important.
â€¢Briefly highlight the major themes (or sub-topics) being explored.
This part of the critique must be about 2 pages, double-spaced. Do not make it longer than 2½ pages.
This section must critically analyze and evaluate the work being reviewed. Some of the questions you may want to consider in this part are:
â€¢What is the point of view of the author(s)? What perspective (ideological, philosophical) do they bring to the work? Is their perspective implicit (gleaned from reading â€œbetween the linesâ€ ) or explicit (openly stated)?
â€¢What kind of evidence to they bring to support their viewpoint? Is it adequate?
â€¢How clear is the argument? Does it flow logically? Are there gaps, inconsistencies, or contradictions in the discussion or argument?
Support your response with examples from the work itself and from your knowledge of the issue/topic. Be sure to go beyond stating your opinion; it is not enough to say you agree or disagree with the authorâ€™s point of view. Substantiate your claims!
â€¢Of what value is the book? What does it add (if anything) to the discourse?
â€¢Who would find the piece helpful and why?
â€¢Is to be an original work of the author and written solely for this course;
â€¢Must be written using current APA format guidelines and include the following: title, abstract, and reference pages (which do not count toward the 5â€“6 pages of content);
â€¢Must be submitted as a Word document (.doc or .docx);
â€¢Must be typed in Times New Roman or Arial 12 point font; and
â€¢Can be written in first person.
Submit this assignment by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 4.
