Step 1: Find an online, newspaper, or magazine critique/review of an art exhibit, movie, book, video game or musical performance/recording. Check online resources for newspapers... The New York Times, The Miami Herald, The Chicago Tribune are all excellent resources for reviews of any type. If you prefer to look at works of art, you can also search under Art News Magazine. Please avoid Blog websites.
Step 2: Read the article (this cannot be just a paragraph, it must be a full article from a professional Critic.) PHYSICALLY Highlight the important information that lets you know what he/she thought of the piece, exhibit, game, etc.You can do this on the page while it is online! Copy the article into a word document and then read and highlight.
Step 3: Draw a conclusion. State (In a sentence or two) If he/she gave a POSITIVE, NEGATIVE, or MIXED review based upon what you have read, and why do you think it is positive, negative or mixed? Include written portions from the article that help prove your point. Do this ON THE SAME PAGE! If it does not fit on the same page, please continue to another page but include all pages when turning this in.
Step 4: If you have seen or tried the thing you're reading about (for instance, have you seen the movie, read the book, played the game, visited the exhibit, gone to the concert in the article) - tell if you agree or disagree with the critic, and why; or.... if you have NOT tried it, tell me if you would like to (or not) based on this review and WHY! Write all of this on the document you have created. Finally, include your copy of the review, cite the source on the page (Title of publication, person who wrote the critique, date) on the top of your page and PRINT it out!
You must have the complete information in steps 1-4,and printed out to turn in to me by next Tuesday.
