This assignment focuses on:

This is an individual assignment. You must work on your own (but you may talk to the instructor and/or a librarian).



  1. You will submit a printout of your assignment at the beginning of class on the due date.
  2. You should use MS Word or Google docs to type up your document and format it appropriately.
  3. Submit a printout of your document. The document should contain:
    • Your name, class, date, etc. at the top
    • The title of the article you found.
    • The summary of why you thought this article was important and what have you learned from reading it (100-200 words). Again, I do not expect you to fully understand the article (but you should be able to understand some of it).
    • Two to three questions you have from reading the article.
    • The bibliography with six items (as described above).
    • Attach a printout of the original article (highlighted as described above).


Your grade will be based on how well you followed the above instructions and the depth/quality of your work (e.g., explanation, questions, etc.).
