  1. Next, choose two different articles from two different scholarly sources, pentagon reports, or government policy statements, on the same issue. Note: The source must be from a credible source.
  2. Clearly identify the author, title of article, and the name of publication. Take notice of the type of article: local, national, or international research.
  3. Identify the main claim and supporting reasons or premises of your selected article.
  4. Analyze the logic of the research article according to the critical analysis tools we have been studying throughout the course, including identifying fallacies and rhetorical devices.

Try looking deeper into the news coverage to discern the significant information that is omitted, and if the evidence is viable. Discern the logic of the arguments in each specific news article. Be alert to determine if there are rival causes and if the evidence is deceptive. Consider what significant information is omitted or if other reasonable conclusions are possible.

Sources and Citations: In addition to the two news articles, find and cite two scholarly sources to back up the claims and conclusions of your analyses. Feel free to use the readings from the course. The CSU-Global Library is another good place to find your sources. Remember to include all the sources that you used, including the newspaper articles, in an APA-formatted reference page.

Your paper, including citations and references, should be 4-5 pages in length, well written, and formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA.
