LIT. REVIEW – SLAVES OF THE STATE
Guide to Writing Literature Reviews
Literature Reviews gives students the opportunity to show their comprehension of assigned readings. Lit-Reviews also help students develop critical writing and reading skills. Successful lit-reviews show that students have read, comprehended the main concepts of an author’s argument and show the ability to critique and/or analyze the ideas being set forth by assigned authors. Thus, students are asked to be critical readers as well as analyzers of given arguments and concepts espoused by scholars.
Lit-Reviews should consist of at least four major paragraphs. (See the creation of 5-step paragraphs below as a good guide)
