in this journal, reflect on the importance of active reading and analysis by further revisiting the article you selected for Writing Notes. Please note that you will not be doing a deep dive analysis yet—that will come next week. For now, simply consider the importance of analysis and how it will help you write your final essay.
To prepare for this assignment, please re-read your selected article and your notes from Module 1. Then, either using the MindEdge Notebook or a Word Document, answer the following questions:
- Who do you think your audience will be in your critical analysis essay? Describe this audience, and explain how they would benefit from any insights produced from your analysis of your selected article.
- Why is analysis so important for your selected reading? How will it help your audience understand the author’s goal in a clearer, more captivating way?
- After re-reading your article and notes from Module 1, what do you believe is your goalin analyzing your selected article? Will you provide additional context to help your audience understand the importance of the author’s goal, or will you use your essay as an opportunity to persuade your audience that the author’s goal is incorrect?
In total, the reflection should be three fully developed paragraphs (5-8 sentences each) in length (consider one paragraph per question).
