This Journal Critique is an opportunity for you to critique an article on a topic about which you may want to

• To train you to write with clarity and concision.
• To develop your ability to critically analyze scholarly works.
• To teach you how to properly utilize the Turabian format.
• To improve your technical writing skills (e.g., grammar and syntax).
For each critique, find a peer-reviewed, scholarly journal article about 10–20 pages in length that covers an
