Ritical Social Analysis of readings (attached)

Attached are 3 readings that are required for this assignment, basically you need to read the attachments and then analyze them as per these instructions:

Each mini-paper will be based on your class readings and shall be made for each calendar week. Mini-papers should be typed and double-spaced. Each paper should include the author and title of the work(s), a brief summary that states what the text is about, and then your critical social analysis which explains and discusses what is important and why, including your reflections and reactions, what connections can be made, what is omitted/neglected, what are the author s biases and/or your own, what implications there may be, what solutions or suggestions there are, etc. Depending on the reading, the length of your entry will vary. Remember that quality is more valued than quantity. In general, each mini-paper should cover all of the week s reading as holistically as possible and should be well crafted, logical, and original.

In order to provide a substantive and critical analysis of the class readings, I am providing a set of questions that I would like each student to consider. I strongly suggest that you sketch out for each assignment some notes that indicate your answer to the following questions. The point, of course, is that we need to ground our discussions in a more critical and substantive analysis of the readings themselves. The outline below simply provides a method of inquiry that will facilitate a more critical reading of texts under analysis.

1. What are the basic assumptions that inform the reading?

A. What are the major organizing ideas?
B. What re the subordinate ideas?

2. What serious questions does the reading raise?

3. What serious omissions are left out of the article or reading? How do these distort or undermine the author s position?

4. What ideology or worldview governs the author s view?

5. In what ways does this article reinforce, extend, challenge, or oppose your own views? Be specific.
