Book Critique forms for extra credit

There are hard copies of the book critique forms outside the classroom on the first table. However, here also are the questions you must answer. The total length of this book critique should be about 500 or more words (2 pages).

Subject of book:

Title, Author, Place of Publication, Publisher, date of publication, number of pages.

An overview of the contents of the book. Outline the author’s argument or thesis. Is there any controversy regarding the thesis? Be specific?

Purpose or audience for the book. Is this written in an expository or narrative style?

Your reaction and evaluation: How well the book has achieved its goal? What possibilities are suggested by the book? What specific points are convincing (or not?)

What kinds of sources did the author use? Be pecific.

Conclusion (For instance, was this book valuable in expanding your knowledge?)

  1. Are we supposed to just do this at home and turn it in to you?
    And do you want it in paragraph form or in short-answer form?

  2. Paragraph form, done at home, turned in to me in my hand NO LATER than 10:30 am on December 22.
