ANALYSIS PAPER: This paper will analyze a text. “Text” is defined as anything that is “read” or interpreted. This paper should focus on how texts are interpreted or how meaning is created. Secondary research should be used, and primary research may be used if appropriate to the topic. A successful paper will interact with multiple sources, build one’s own ideas upon those sources, and argue logically.
Summarize(THRORY): You will use your own words to explain clearly what happened. If it is an event, you will describe the situation, people and circumstances. If you are dealing with a text or a performance, you will explain the author’s thesis, purpose and audience. Your summary is intended to help your audience understand this subject clearly and thoroughly.
Analyze: Next, you will explain the meaning of this event, text or performance. You will evaluate what happened and explain how it is either good, bad or both. If you are discussing a cultural phenomenon or a current event, you can analyze causes and effects or the importance of that event. For a written text or a performance, you will tell how well the author conveys their intentions to the audience. Are they convincing? What are the weaknesses?
Respond(INTERPRETATION) : Often, a Critical Analysis assignment requires you to present the summary and analysis objectively. However, another way of writing a critical analysis is to include your own point of view. Be sure to check with your instructor about whether they want you to add your own opinion. If you write this paper with your own personal opinion included, it is sometimes called a Summary, Analysis Response.
