How could you use it in research, if you had to?

Please follow the guidelines below for the Renaissance option:
You are required to write 3 different secondary critiques/reviews out of 8 options throughout the semester. The responses should be no less than 750 words, double-spaced with one-inch margins—12-point font in Courier New or Bookman Old—and should be associated the material just covered in the last module. MLA formatting is required (in text and for your Works Cited page). The topics and due dates (ALWAYS before midnight on the Sunday following the module) will be as follows:
Step One: For each response, choose one of the peer reviewed Renaissance articles below, or you are welcome to find one of your own. If you choose to find your own, make sure the article is OVER 5 pages long (If it is not, you must send me the link to the article for approval) and accessed from a scholarly source. https://memphis.instructure.com/courses/48992/files/5262990?wrap=1 https://memphis.instructure.com/courses/48992/files/5262997?wrap=1 https://memphis.instructure.com/courses/48992/files/5262992?wrap=1 https://memphis.instructure.com/courses/48992/files/5262996?wrap=1 https://memphis.instructure.com/courses/48992/files/5262995?wrap=1 https://memphis.instructure.com/courses/48992/files/5262993?wrap=1 https://memphis.instructure.com/courses/48992/files/5262994?wrap=1
Step Two: Once you choose an article, read it and make notes. Here is what I am looking for:
Introduce the essay’s author, the title of the article, the essay’s primary argument, and your overall impression of it.
Summarize the essay you chose—what does the essay/article argue or explain (its thesis)? What are the main supporting points and the conclusion?
How valid is the argument or explanation? Is it easy to understand? Why or why not?
How has it broadened your perspective on the topic? If it hasn’t, why not? Did it confirm class discussions on the topic, or add new insight?
Did you agree or disagree with its insight and why? How could you use it in research, if you had to?
A conclusion that takes a side on why others should or should not explore this essay and why/why not?
Internal citations and a Works Cited page in MLA format is required.
*To add additional insight, feel free to further cite from primary texts relevant to the article to back up an interpretation or offer a rebuttal.
Step 3: Download your article and add it to the submission drop box along with your essay (or make sure the URL is on your Works Cited page if there is no PDF option).
