how do you write a critique for more than one paper?
David Taylor (2 months ago)
Do you mean a critique of more than one sources--a group of sources you have read? I think you are referring to a literature review: You may want to check out this online tutorial on how to write a lit review in 30 minutes or less: https://youtu.be/TdJxY4w9XKY There is also a text version - http://www.peakwriting.com/litreview/Index.html

Hi Prof.David, What a wonderful lecture!! I learned a lot from this 9 minutes short lecture. About to do a ''Critical Analysis of Landmark Public Health Case Studies'' could you please suggest any article from public health journals? Major public health case studies like smoking, obesity, Zika virus, HIV infection, these are some of the much-researched areas. Kindly advice.
Sarvat Kazmi (7 months ago)
Thank you Prof. That would atleast help me to narrow my search. Very helpful ☺
David Taylor (7 months ago)
Thanks for the good words, Sarvat. I don't know much about the public health field. If I had to choose one from that list, it would be Zika.

Sheila Bell De Leon (11 months ago)
every-time my teacher on English gives us work , we don't get it or she just doesn't explain it well or detailed like what you just did so we will transformed into researched maniac. The internet is our only hope!!!! but its hard to search if you dont know how to begin so thanks to you!!! Can i put you on my pocket?? hahahah kidding. you were so much helpful thank you very much..
Sheila Bell De Leon (11 months ago)
i think i get it... but how can my teacher know that it is my evaluation or the reader know that "that info" is from me??nahh they can manage hhahaha. thank you again!! very much!!
David Taylor (11 months ago)
Write your introduction and send it to me and I'll make sure it's in 3rd person. Instead of saying, "I think Salinger's works are overrated" you would simply say, "Salinger's works are overrated." That switches it from 1st to 3rd person.
Sheila Bell De Leon (11 months ago)
you said i need to use 3rd POV or formal choo chooo. well on the intro part . how can i state my evaluation using 3rd POV?? thats the only partttt i dont know how to do and im freaking nervous really. i need to make a 1000 words today and i need to pass it tomorrow . im a freaking mess. sooo thank you very much. i know how to start my critique .youre really a big help!! i meant it!

Nicholas Jenkins (1 year ago)
Your entire critique outline seems to hinge on their being an obvious take away on which to base how successful the source was in conveying the take away; however, when faced with a material where the takeaway is not clear, for example poems like "the hills like white elephants," what is one to do? A writer couldn't just declare what they felt the poem was about and then critique it based on that, as it would be unsubstantial, as such one would have to write a whole other essay arguing what the source's take away was before doing the critique! How could one be a judge when they don't know what the performer was attempting to do? Thoughts on what to do in scenarios like these?
David Taylor (1 year ago)
Agreed. Nicholas--this critique is meant for expository writing only, not creative writing.

Thank you so much. I was having anxiety on doing my Psychology Critical Review assignment but the way this video delivers all the information that doubles well with the provided guidelines, I feel much more at ease. Even just looking at the word differently from Critical to Evaluation helps bring concerns down so much. Thank you again for making this video available.

Sir is Critique on an essay is the same as Critique of a novel or story?
David Taylor (1 year ago)
Search YouTube for "how to critique a poem" or "how to analyze a story" and you'll find what you're looking for
Ma Arabelle Ampo (1 year ago)
Our assignmnet is,write a critique essay on any literature work like story, poems,etc
David Taylor (1 year ago)
I think the critique essay as outlined in this video is more formal than a reaction essay. If you can send me the assignment instructions, I can show you how to outline it.
David Taylor (1 year ago)
Ma, this version of the critique essay covered in the video is for nonfiction works. A critique of a work of fiction who have a different structure. If you can send me the assignment instructions, I can show you how to outline it.
Ma Arabelle Ampo (1 year ago)
Is the critique essay is more likely a reaction essay?

Jayar--No, they are not the same. One is nonfiction, the other is fiction. Therefore, the critieria for evaluating them are different. If you have your teacher's assignment instructions, you can post them here and I'll try to help.

Also the research paradigms/worldviews, I really still am struggling sir. Your help will be so appreciated. thank you

Hi Dr Taylor, can the topic sentences be. Inadequate healthcare is a characteristics of poverty that leads to a loss of hope. Another type of poverty that leads to a loss of hope is inadequate education. Finally, poverty is a contributing factor that leads to social exclusion and a loss of hope.
David Taylor (1 year ago)
Nicoleen--yes, those can be topic sentences, but they need to be sentences written in the same format and with transition words---First, poverty can be definted by inadequate healthcare. Second, poverty can be defined by inadequate education. Finally, poverty can be defined by social exclusion.---Then in your conclusion you bring in loss of hope. --In conclusion, when a person lacks adequate healthcare and education, and feels excluded from mainstream society, that person takes on the final characteristic of poverty, the loss of hope.
nicoleen brooks (1 year ago)
Hi Mr Taylor, I am writing a definition essay would you say this thsis is befitting for a definition essay on poverty. The affordance of healthcare, education and the culture of social exclusion leaves an indiidual with a hope of no bright future.
nicoleen brooks (1 year ago)
Thanks a lot sir
David Taylor (1 year ago)
Nicoleen--I like the thesis. It just needs to include the word (poverty) that it is defining: "Poverty can be defined by the lack of adequate healthcare and education, and a culture of social exclusion that leads to the loss of hope."

Haziq Aziz (1 year ago)
The video was very informative. Quick question, would a "Critical Summary" of a work be the same as a "Critique Essay" of the work? Thanks again!
David Taylor (1 year ago)
Sure. Send to [email protected]
Haziq Aziz (1 year ago)
David Taylor Thanks for the reply! I have the assignment, and the instructions. I have a graded version of the assignment; I didn't do too well. And, on top of that my teacher did not give too much feed back. If I send you the assignment instructions along with my marked "critical response" (including feedback), through e-mail, do you think you could briefly point out some things I could improve on? Thanks again.
David Taylor (1 year ago)
My guess is yes, they would be quite similar. The only way to know for sure is to send me the assignment instructions.

David Taylor (1 year ago)
Good luck, Maria. I hope this is what he is looking for.
