Homework Assignments/Articles Review:
Homework-assigned articles reviews will be graded on the following criteria:
It is recommended that articles come from a current event topic related to Airport Planning and Management. Examples include Airport Security, Airfield Operations, Aircraft Accidents, ARFF, and/or Noise Compatibility. Other topics covered in the text may apply (must coordinate with the professor before using something outside the issues mentioned).
Remember that an article analysis is NOT a summary of the article.
1. Identify the author's thesis
2. Discuss the facts in the article that support the author's thesis. In addition, discuss how the article's points relate to the course content. If you include facts from the article, I should see some paraphrasing with in-text citations. Use APA for in-text citations. Are there resources with the article? Are they current?
3. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the article as it relates to the profession? Is there evidence of bias or faulty reasoning? In this section, you will need to bring in outside sources to either support the "truth" found in the article or "faulty reasoning." What are others saying about this topic? Is there conflicting information out there?
4. Conclusions - concluding remarks regarding your review/analysis of the article.
The article review should be 2-3 pages long (not counting the Cover Page and Reference List) and include at least 3 References (original article and support of review).
