B. Central Theme of the Article 5pts

Write 2 or 3 sentences giving the overall theme of the article. Think about the article and then narrow the main concepts down to a few sentences. What are the broad themes? What point is the author trying to make overall. This is NOT the place for detail. This is the overall theme.


C. Article Summary (2 to 3 paragraphs) 20pts

 Using 2 to 3 paragraphs, summarize the article in your own words. Think about how you would tell someone else about the article if they had not read it.  This is the place for detail. In order to summarize, you need to critically analyze the article for classroom purposes and application. Use scientific inquiry questioning when you read the article: Who, what, when, where, why, how to make application?

Information from the article that you use must have in-text APA and end of text references that shows what you borrowed from the article.

Example: (in-text citation APA)

Reading literacy in the content areas is critical to content area subject success (Vacca & Vacca, 2010, p…).


D. Application in the Classroom 10pts

How could you, as an educator, take the information in this article and use it in your academic setting. How would you adapt it? Change the ideas to fit your educational style or philosophies? What did you learn that will impact your instruction in the content area? What MCCR-Social Studies Strand does this article fall under.


E. Article Critique 10pts

This is YOUR OPINION. Do not summarize the article in this section.  If you say, “I liked this article,” it is not a reflection.  A reflection explains WHY you enjoyed the article or why not based on instructional principles or educational beliefs.
