you systematically evaluate a work’s effectiveness including what it does well and what it does poorly.  write a critical analysis of Christopher Rowland’s article entitled With fitness trackers in the workplace, bosses can monitor your every stepPreview the document  

A critical analysis has a similar structure to an essay.  You must include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion, but what you include in each section is different.

  • What is the author’s claim or thesis?  What assumptions are being made – and are they acceptable?
  • What support (evidence) is offered on behalf of the claim? Are they relevant and are they convincing-Why?
  • How does the author use the rhetorical appeals: logos, ethos, and pathos?
  • How does the author establish the image of himself or herself that we sense in the article? What is the author’s tone, and is it appropriate? 
  • Does the author seem to you to be fair-Why? Is the author a critical thinker, biased, or open-minded? Are counterarguments adequately considered?
