Task Details PLEASE only use the references from the provided reference list – DO NOT use any outside references!!!!!! One reference to be used is high lightened yellow. ISBN, links and pages numbers have been provided. Please look them up properly and reference Harvard style. The minimum reference to be used is 4 but please use as many of them provided references as possible please. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU CANNOT ACCESS ANY OF THE REFERENCES AND I WILL SORT SOMETHING OUT You will critique the following article: Whitaker, D. J., T. Haileyesus, M. Swahn, and L.S. Saltzman. 2007. “Differences in frequency of violence and reported injury between relationships with reciprocal and nonreciprocal intimate partner violence.” American Journal of Public Health, 97(5): 941–947. http://doi.org/10.2105/AJPH.2005.079020 THE LINK IS IN THE REFERENCE LIST A critique is a type of essay that evaluates the effectiveness of a text according to specific criteria. The first step in writing a critique is carefully reading the text. Use a dictionary if you don’t understand words in the article. The critique involves the following steps: 1. Evaluate the accuracy of the text. 2. Make connections between your critiques of Whitaker et al. (2007) and the unit readings. (IMPORTANT – only use the provided references from the list) 3. Provide specific evidence from unit readings to back up your arguments/statements (what, why, how). 4. Demonstrate your understanding of the course content. 5. Use only unit materials as in-text references/reference list. REFER TO REFERENCE LIST I want to see that you have learned how to be a critical consumer of violence research based on assigned unit content. Use all assigned materials to help you identify strengths and areas of concern in Whitaker et al.’s (2007) article. Be sure to be specific in your critique. Provide specific evidence and examples with citations to unit content to support your conclusions. For example, don’t just say “the authors fail to acknowledge that their findings contradict other research.” What other research? What specifically is contradictory? Why is it a problem? What are the implications of this? What would have made the article stronger? As a whole, your critique should reflect a comprehensive understanding of the course content up to and including the week 6 content (these are all provided in the reference list). Being able to apply course content to critique an empirical article is an excellent opportunity to show me what you have learned so far. Academic Sources: You should incorporate a variety of assigned sources from this unit, citing and discussing a minimum of four substantive readings or films. All sources must be correctly cited in text and a correctly formatted reference list must be provided. You should cite to the assigned text rather than lectures for all assigned readings/films/multimedia in the unit. For example, if I talk about the Bancroft book in a lecture, you should cite the chapter that you read rather than the recap I provided in the lecture. For this assessment you should NOT cite sources other than those assigned in the unit. Introduction Provide a clear citation of the article. (You can then use Whitaker et al. (2007) when you are referring to the article in your work.) Provide a brief summary of the main arguments you will be discussing (Whitaker et al. (2007) is about…, The research was…). State your general assessment of the work (The main points…, The authors conclude…). Include your own thesis statement. Article Summary Present of brief summary of Whitaker et al.’s (2007) main arguments/ideas, key findings, conclusions/recommendations. What do the authors say? Remember, this is not where you evaluate. It is where you provide an accurate summary of the article’s main points. Critical Analysis You should critique three aspects of the article in total. Ideally, you should focus on substantive issues. Conclusion What does this mean for DV research and/or practice? What suggestions do you have for improving the article? References A minimum of four assigned sources from the list provided. No sources from outside the unit. Harvard style referencinG.
