Annotated Articles about the Little Prince
Annotated Articles about the Little Prince.For this task, you must select one scholarly article related to one of the course texts from an appropriate scholarly database (such as JSTOR).
Once you have chosen your article, print it out and follow the steps below:
1. Read the article at least once. You should be familiar with the content and be able to discuss and respond to the point of view / argument that the author is putting forward.
2. Annotate the article. This means making notes on the article, using the paper itself and its margins to note down your responses, thoughts, and to highlight any important
information. Do not simply make marks at random on the page without reading the article properly. It is very obvious when the student does this, rather than reading and annotating thoughtfully. You’ll be asked to engage with your own annotations, so don’t try to fake it!
3. Write three paragraphs responding to the article. These paragraphs should be around 150-200 words each (for a total word count of 450-600 words), and should follow this format:
Paragraph 1: Summary
In the first paragraph, you should summarise the article’s content using your own words,
using paraphrasing only. Where paraphrasing is used, page numbers should be cited.
Paragraph 2: Analysis
In this paragraph, you should respond critically to the author’s argument / viewpoint,
addressing the strengths and weakness of the article, and posing counterarguments where relevant. You should use a mixture of paraphrasing and direct quotations when writing this paragraph. Where paraphrasing or quotations are used, page numbers should be cited. Note: any direct quotations will be excluded from the total word count of this section.
Paragraph 3: Evaluation
In the final paragraph, you should critically evaluate the article in terms of its usefulness
(or lack thereof!) for developing your own research. Some questions to think about might include: how helpful is the article for my own ideas? How would I use this article to support my own arguments? What did the article teach me?
