Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Each student will critically review a peer-reviewed (refereed) journal article on the subject of:
The rise in global terrorist activities BEFORE the events of September 11, 2001.
Search for an article that speaks to political, social, economic, and/or cultural factors that may have contributed to increased risks associated with global terrorism.
The review should be three (3) pages typed, double-spaced (about 750 words).
Clearly introduce the article’s title, author, and source information (i.e., journal name, publication date, volume, pages, URL).
Introduce and discuss the article’s topic.
Summarize and discuss the major theory or theme(s) of the article as it relates to global terrorism before September 11, 2001.
Did the author conduct research? If so, what was the research question and methodology?
Discuss the author’s arguments/points of view.
What were the author’s Findings/conclusions/major issues?
What are the article’s implications for informing policy decisions relating to global terrorism?
Discuss what you learned from the article.
Critique the value of the information in the article in terms of how it can (or cannot) be applied to the field.
Please do not quote extensively from the article. Your summary/critique should be an in-depth ‘review’, not a regurgitation of quotes.
This is not a mini-research paper, but rather a review of an article on the designated topic.
Please include a “Reference” page with this assignment that includes the APA-Style reference of the article being reviewed. Additional peer-reviewed references are not required for this assignment.
