2. Abstract: The first paragraph will consist of a descriptive abstract of the article. In other words, summarize the content of the article. This section must be a minimum of five complete lines. Not five sentences but five full lines of text.
3. Comment: After the abstract, provide an evaluative comment on the article’s content. Explain your thoughts about the article. How does it apply to what we have learned in class? Do you see any future potential for the material or process you read about, other than that discussed by the author? This section must be a minimum of five complete lines. Not five sentences but five full lines of text.
An article review that does not have each of the three headings and/or does not cover all three areas will receive 0 points. You must have a minimum of five lines for the abstract section and five lines for the comment section.
