Weight Question Instructions
(30) 1. Read the essay and use one of the active reading techniques, SQ4R or Reading Inventory. Document your active reading, and submit your notes. For those steps usually done in your head (such as recite), write down briefly what you did in the step.

Note: if you use a Reading Inventory, when you reach rereading, only answer the questions from the first three bullets of rereading listed in the Reading Inventory table (Readers Choice 41).

Note: you may photograph or scan your active reading notes and include them in your assignment document.
(10) 2. Create an outline to help you make an accurate summary of the authors arguments. Identify the specific kind of argument being made, the subarguments, the assumptions, the critical details, and the important examples.
(20) 3. Recall that Unit 4 demonstrates outlining techniques. Include citations for paraphrased and quoted material.

Create an outline that sketches your critical review essay on the authors essay (Unit 9). Include what you think is most important from the summary for your critical review, and apply the standards of evaluation (Part B, Units 6, 7, 8, and 9) that you think are most appropriate. Include citations for paraphrased and quoted material.
(40) 4. Write a complete rough draft critical review essay (10001250 words) based on the outline you completed in question 3. Include citations for paraphrased and quoted material.

Note: do not submit your final essay at this stage. This version should require further revision based on your tutors feedback. Some errors are expected and thus the general grading matrix will only be loosely applied.
