Hi, for this assignment I chose an article ( I’ll upload it ) then u will use it to answer questions.
Prompt: For this assignment, you will critique a secondary article of your choosing. First, you will choose an article from the American Historical Review or Journal of American History (I already choose one). This can be from any topic that you want, as long as it pertains to American history and falls into the timeframe of this class – 1865-2016. After reading the article, you answer the following question regarding your article.
1. Summarize the Article: What is the author discussing in this article? What is the argument/main point that the author is trying to make?
2. Evidence: What types of evidence does the author use? Is there any types of evidence that you could think of that would reinforce the author’s argument?
3. Analyze the article: After writing about the main point and the type of evidence, did the author use the evidence to convincingly to reinforce their main point? Why or Why not?
4. Further research: Do you agree or disagree with the conclusions of the article? If you were to research this topic more, what would be you next step to expand this research?
