Write a 1-2 page evaluation of one (1) book.
You do NOT have to read the entire book to write a book evaluation.
Your goal is to evaluate your source (=book) based on C.R.A.P. (Currency, Reliability/Relevancy, Authority, and Purpose) criteria and provide your verdict on whether the book is an appropriate scholarly source for your academic research.
Your paper should be a Word document (double spaced) that should include:
An APA-style Title Page A 1-2 page book evaluation that consists of:
1st paragraph – A brief introduction (book title, author, purpose of the book)
2nd paragraph – A brief summary of the book (or a chapter of the book) with a direct (short) quotation (Your direct quote should be SHORTER than 40 words long. Don’t forget the in-text citation!)
3rd paragraph – An evaluation of the source based on your answers on the Evaluation Worksheet.
Do not just state the fact. You must describe your findings. Example: “The book was published by the University of Michigan Press and written by an author who has a PhD in Sociology. Considering that it was published by an academic press and written by a researcher in the related subject field, it is considered a scholarly book.”
4th paragraph – Your conclusion to your evaluation – Is the source relevant/credible for your academic research? Why or why not?
An end References List with three (3) book citations that you exported from NoodleTools – Although you only cited one of the books in your evaluation, include all three book citations in your References list for practice purposes.
