answer the following:

  1. Which article did you choose? Who wrote it? What journal was it published in? In what year was it published?
  2. What is it about? What is its argument?
  3. How is it written? What is its style and tone (how does it sound)? What kind of diction (word choice) does the author use? Who would enjoy reading this article? In other words, who is its primary audience? Who is it designed for? How do you know? (Hint: the journal it was published in might be a clue.)
  4. Even though they may not be directly connected, how does the article you chose help you understand one of the narratives by Tan, Hamilton, or Arellano that you read last week? Be specific.
