I’m studying and need help with a Art & Design question to help me learn.
The professor defines a reading response as:
I define it as your own critical analysis of the material presented in a reading. A successful response should identify the author’s topic and thesis, and then present an argument concerning the effectiveness of the author’s argument. A response can engage both the content of the material (the important points, including any arguments) and the way that content is presented. An article analysis is NOT a book report that merely summarizes the reading and repeats the author’s points.
FIRST: How to read critically
To move through any reading and toward a thorough understanding of the reading, consider answering the following questions:
1. What is the author’s subject?
2. What is the author’s thesis?
3. How does the author support the thesis (e.g. examples, description, opinion,
anecdotes) and how do these examples, etc., specifically support the thesis?
4. What is the author’s purpose (to persuade, argue, describe, entertain, explain)?
Authors often answer questions in their writing, but they can also raise them. You should consider whether issues raised in the reading are addressed adequately, passed over with sufficient discussion, or even ignored.
SECOND: How to formulate a response
There will be readings to which you immediately have a response to the author’s thesis and main points. Your analysis is NOT A SUMMARY OF THE ARTICLE. If you are stuck, think about the elements of the article that you remember most readily, and what did the author do to makes those element(s) more memorable. Did anything about the article stick out to you as jarring? Interesting? Inappropriate? If so, that section of the article may be a good place for you to focus your own critique of the article.
THIRD: How to write the response
A paper “heading in the right direction” might:
A paper “veering off course” probably:
