  • Summarize the central theme. (If the theme is unrelated to a significant aspect of your topic, it is not a good article to choose).
  • Discuss significant findings
  • Discuss the study's limitations
  • Describe the article's audience
  • Explain the article's usefulness in relation to your topic- WHY is the article a good one?
  • Explain why the article is significant in relationship to the other articles you have chosen
  • Potentially comment on the authority of the author
  • Note: It is wise to provide an introduction at the top of the document, explaining the significance of your topic
