Give yourself plenty of time to read the first article (do not read the primary source until after this analysis is done).
Analyze the secondary source article using the questions listed below (drawn from the Campus Library at UW Bothell and Cascadia College). Do NOT complete in short answer – this is an essay. It will work best if you view each major grouping as a paragraph, therefore ending with a 5 paragraph paper.
Before you turn in the assignment, work your way through what you have written, highlighting and commenting to show where you answered each of the questions listed below. This exercise will allow you to double check your work, and prevent you from writing a summary instead of an analysis. A complete analysis will have 17 comments that I can see. You will find the New Comment prompt under the Review tab at the top of your paper. Here is a video to describe how it is done. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/video-insert-and-review-comments-in-word-5d50bf36-a069-41d5-b805-ceacd0762cdc (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
