2. Select one of the papers below and write a critical essay about the method used in this article. Use peer-reviewed articles to compare and contrast your critical analysis. Cite accordingly and avoid long — and verbatim — quotes; instead, restate what you have read in your own words (once you feel comfortable that you have grasped the accurate meaning of the original document). And always remember: it is you, your essay — your idea — that comes first. You gain points for using the literature to strengthen your own/original argument, not the other way around.
