A critical analysis essay

you systematically evaluate a work’s effectiveness including what it does well and what it does poorly.  write a critical analysis of Christopher Rowland’s article entitled With fitness trackers in the workplace, bosses can monitor your every stepPreview the document  

A critical analysis has a similar structure to an essay.  You must include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion, but what you include in each section is different.

  • What is the author’s claim or thesis?  What assumptions are being made – and are they acceptable?
  • What support (evidence) is offered on behalf of the claim? Are they relevant and are they convincing-Why?
  • How does the author use the rhetorical appeals: logos, ethos, and pathos?
  • How does the author establish the image of himself or herself that we sense in the article? What is the author’s tone, and is it appropriate? 
  • Does the author seem to you to be fair-Why? Is the author a critical thinker, biased, or open-minded? Are counterarguments adequately considered?

How to Structure a Critical Analysis

  • State your overall impression of the article, this is your thesis statement for this assignment

Body (2-3 paragraphs)

  • Provide your analysis of the findings/arguments/conclusions of the article
  • Discuss the strengths and weaknesses, limitations, and problems with the material
  • Make sure to reference the author and the material (use direct quotes and/or paraphrase evidence) to support your analysis

Conclusion (1 paragraph)
