Assignment: Critical Reading and Outlining
In this Weekâ€™s Discussion, you reviewed prewriting components of the writing process and examined your own writing in relation to prewriting. Now you will put these concepts and insights in practice for this Weekâ€™s Assignment.
To prepare for this Assignment:
Choose one of the preselected journal articles in this weekâ€™s Learning Resources. Applying the prewriting concepts from this weekâ€™s readings, critically read the journal article, taking notes or engaging in any other forms of prewriting that you would like to try.
Review sample outlines as provided in the Learning Resource â€œWriting a Paper: Outlining.â€
Select three related main ideas from the journal article (excluding the abstract). Compose a written outline of the articleâ€™s main points. Use the sample outline provided in the Learning Resource as a guide for capturing main points. Remember, you are not drafting a narrative summary of the journal article but short phrases of the articleâ€™s main points.
