I need summative article evaluations on the attached 12 articles based on the following guidelines. I selected 20 pages to give the writer leeway to use more than 1 page for review. If more pages are needed, please let me know.
WHAT IS A SUMMATIVE ARTICLE EVALUATION?
A Summative Article Evaluation is a list of citations to books, articles, and documents. Each citation is followed by a brief (usually about 50-75 words) descriptive and evaluative paragraph. The purpose of the summative article evaluation is to inform the reader of the relevance, accuracy, and quality of the sources cited.
Introduction- The Introduction should identify the topic and explain why it is important. It must be adequately informative, yet easy to follow. It should state the problem as simply as possible, taking into account the broader view of the discipline as a whole. The student should not overestimate the reader's familiarity with the topic. The Introduction will be read by those who are somewhat acquainted with the general area, but not all readers will be specialists in the particular topic. The student should write in an intelligent, logical, concise manner, but the Introduction should be presented in such a way that one who knows little of the literature or particular topic will gain a solid understanding of the dissertation's purpose and subject matter. The Introduction must be interesting, as well. If the reader becomes bored while reading the first section of the dissertation or thesis, he or she is unlikely to regain interest in the following sections. In fact, the reader may stop reading altogether! To prevent such disaster, tradition permits prose in the first few paragraphs that is less dry than the formal, scientific or literary norm.
Review of the pertinent published research material that explains, evaluates and summarizes the material to support your thesis theory/rational. As for the discussion, the writer must critically analyze the unbiased results of the research. One should present statistical data an analyze the resulting figures in an attempt to judge the suggestions inherent in his or her findings. The writer may also reference the literature order to show how his or her research builds upon previous work in the field of study.
The conclusion may be the most important part of the project. The writer must not merely repeat the introduction, but explain in expert-like detail what has been learned, explained, decided, proven, etc. The writer must reveal the ways in which the paper's thesis might have significance in society.
A conclusion should strive to answer questions that readers logically raise--"Why are you telling me this? Why do you think I need to understand your main point?" The conclusion may place the paper in a larger context, serve as a call for action, set forth a warning or hypothesis, intentionally complicate the issues already introduced, raise a question or questions, introduce a relevant quote, or tell an appropriate anecdote.
Summary can be an important function of a conclusion, but this part must be brief; readers know what they've just read. The writer should point out the importance or implications of the research on an area of societal concern. The writer could also mention the lack of conclusion in the field. This demonstrates understanding of the subject's complexity. The writer may choose to propose what may be the natural next step to take in light of what the argument is attempting to convince. The conclusion should not end with a quotation or statement that could very well be the subject of another paper. The former deflects attention away from one as writer and thinker; the latter deflects attention from what one is conveying in the paper.
