Article from The Chronicle of Higher Education, InsideHigherEd.com, 

1) introduce you to the literature of higher and post secondary education, (2) acquaint you with some of the issues that are in or related to higher education governance; (3) give you practice in developing and communicating thoughtful reactions to what you read in the literature; (4) help you make connections between theory/research and current realities of governance and organization of higher education; (5) help you reflect on what you bring to your analysis of the article in the area of biases and assumptions.

 The paper should address an article from The Chronicle of Higher Education, InsideHigherEducation.com, 

Your task is to find a major article that interests you and is relevant to this course, read, and reflect on it, and write a short 5 page paper which first, briefly summarizes the article and second, communicates a thoughtful reaction to it. Your reaction might be in the form of an opinion on an issue; a series of questions about the topic which, if answered, would further illuminate it; a careful weighing of the pro’s and con’s on an issue; etc. It is NOT enough merely to say so-and-so is “interesting” or that “you agree.” WHY is it interesting? What do you THINK about it? WHY do you agree (or disagree)? How is it RELATED TO OUR STUDY of the governance and organization of higher education? Given what you have studied in the course, how might you INTERPRET or MAKE MEANING of the article?

Your reaction paper should have several key content components and be well written. It will:

  1. Introduce the article and  provide an overview of the key concepts or ideas presented in the article
  2.  Describe what you believe, and what the readings in the course indicate, to be the weakness and strengths in the authors’ argument, claims, methodology, and/or best practices that are presented.
  3. Provide a personal, critical reaction and reflection to the article and make explicit your reasons for agreeing or disagreeing, and clearly articulate your own biases or assumptions that lead you to your position
  4. Offers new insights, or new interpretations of article based on knowledge gained from course material.
  5. Be written in a well organized manner, in APA format, and have few errors in grammar, punctuation, and spelling.

On the cover page, be sure to include a complete APA-style citation for the article. There is no need for a reference list unless you cite other sources in the paper. Also, you need not cite the article you are reviewing in the text of the paper. The source is understood. You must include  a link to the source for the article as part of the submission.
