Mini-Assignment 2

For this mini-assignment, which will lead to the second major assignment, you will choose a scholarly, peer-reviewed article, in any discipline, and summarize it in about 300 words.

Before writing, refer to the textbook section about summary: pp. 86-97

Your summary should not be just a recounting of the article, piece by piece, but should instead be a selective construction of meaning–what does the article mean, and how does it come to mean that? Think about the article’s argument, and how the authors reached that argument–from the methodology, to the results, to the larger implications in the field.

At the end, include a citation of the article, strictly in MLA format. Refer to Purdue OWL for help with this citation.
