Critical comment grade 11

Hi grade 11 ladies,

These are the directions for the critical comment you started writing in class last week.

Write a 300-500- word critical comment paragraph about the article “The satirical verses”.

Find the article here.

Here’s the structure your critical comment paragraph should be based on.

Introduce the work being analyzed. Include both bibliographical information and more in-depth information.

  • Specify the title of the work, the type of work it is, the author’s name, and the field or genre the work addresses.
  • Include information about the context in which the article was written.
  • Clearly state the author’s purpose or thesis.
  • The overall introduction should only consume roughly 10 percent of your paper’s total length.

Include your own thesis. Your thesis should be a brief statement that summarizes your overall evaluation of the work being critiqued.

  • A thesis that is both positive and negative is common for a critical review, but it can also be strictly positive or strictly negative.
  • Note that your thesis statement is technically part of your introduction.

Summarize the work. Quickly sum up the key points the author of the original article mentioned in his or her defense.

  • You can provide a limited number of examples, but be brief. Overall, the summary should take up no more than one-third of your paper’s body. Less is usually preferred.
  • You can also briefly describe how the text is organized.

Break into your critique. The critical analysis itself should form the majority of the body and should conform to the guidelines mentioned.

  • The analysis plus the summary should form roughly 80 percent of the overall paper.
  • Each separate idea should be addressed separately.

Conclude with your final judgment. In your concluding sentence, clearly restate your thesis or overall opinion of the analyzed work.

  • You should also use this space to briefly present recommendation on how the analyzed work could be improved. Improvements can include ideas, appeals, and research approach.
  • The conclusion should only take up about 10 percent of the overall paper.
