WCSS 6051 Week 2 Assignment Critical Reading and Outlining *****)
Assignment: Critical Reading and Outlining
To prepare for this Assignment:
Choose one of the preselected journal articles in this week’s Learning Resources. Applying the prewriting concepts from this week’s readings, critically read the journal article, taking notes or engaging in any other forms of prewriting that you would like to try.
Review sample outlines as provided in the Learning Resource “Writing a Paper: Outlining.”
Select three related main ideas from the journal article (excluding the abstract). Compose a written outline of the article’s main points. Use the sample outline provided in the Learning Resource as a guide for capturing main points. Remember, you are not drafting a narrative summary of the journal article but short phrases of the article’s main points.
Submit your Assignment using Walden’s APA Course Paper Template by Day 7.
