The written analysis should include:
A very succinct summary of the readings. This should include:
What is the author’s purpose in writing this? What Big Idea is she/he proposing?
How does the author support this idea? What are the main supporting facts or arguments?
In what ways do you agree with the author? How? Why?
In what ways do you disagree or hold a different perspective?
How does this relate to the profession of nursing, patient care, or your own practice? What are the “real world” implications?
What questions arise from this reading? What would you like to explore or ask the author or the class?
