Social Media part 2
Reading Critique (300 words per article)
In the course you will have inevitably come across readings that you disliked or disagreed with. This section provides the opportunity to offer up critique of three readings. Here you should summarize the main thesis/argument of each reading. Then, describe your critique of the reading – what is it that the author gets wrong? What was missing? What further evidence would be needed to sway your opinion? Here it is not enough to state you disliked a particular article, you must also explain – as specific as possible – what about the article you disliked and why.
