You will need to use two sources to write this critique analysis. The first source is your textbook. (SOCIOLOGY BY RICHARD T. SCHAEFER). Your textbook will assist you in better understanding your article and writing your critique.

The second source is an article from a peer-reviewed journal published within the last five years that addresses a sociological concept or topic of interest to you. The article you select to write your critique analysis must be data-driven. That is, the research study must incorporate the experimental or correlational research design. Moreover, the article must have the major components of a research study (i.e., An Abstract, introduction, Methodology, Results, and Discussion sections) you must use the ASA Style manual to write your paper. Here’s the format for writing your paper:

1. A title page with the title in the middle of the page
2. Page numbering in the upper right corner beginning with 1 on the title page
3. In-text citations in ASA format (that means the citation follows either the quote or the paraphrase of the information provided)
4. A reference page at the end (called References) in ASA format
