Text type 2: Critical analysis essay

A critical analysis essay requires its writers to write a critical evaluation of an argument. The main purpose of a critical analysis essay is to tell a reader about a subject, and to explain its purpose and meaning. You will also need to present your personal point of view and critically analyse the subject. 

Background Information: Give the readers some context; help them understand the nature of the work.  

  • Information 
  • Title 
  • Author 
  • Publication information 
  • Statement of topic and purpose 
  • Thesis statement: After giving the reader some context, provide your reaction to the work in a thesis statement. 

Summary: Demonstrate your understanding of the source, as described in the Summary section above. 

Critical Analysis (Interpretation and Evaluation): Here is where you finally present your analysis of the work based on your reading and critical evaluation.  

  • Talk about how the source is organized; 
  • Discuss the style and rhetoric of the source; 
  • How Effective was the source and the message; 
  • How was the topic treated; was the writer biased or did he do it justice? 
  • Discuss how the source appealed to its target audience 

ConclusionA key thing to remember is that you should not introduce any new ideas or arguments to your paper's conclusion. It should only sum up what you have already written, revisit your thesis statement, and end with a powerful final impression. The following are some points to consider when writing the conclusion: 

  • Wrap up” the entire paper 
  • Demonstrate to readers that the author accomplished what he/she set out to do 
  • Show how you the author has proved their thesis statement 
  • Give a sense of completeness and closure on the topic 
  • Leave something extra for your reader to think about 
  • Leave a powerful final impact on a reader

Design of a successful presentation

Design slides like academic paragraphs using PEE: 

  • Point – As the title of your slides 
  • Evidence – As the points of your slides 
  • Explanation – As your speech in the presentation 

Make the evidence visual: 

PowerPoint is a visual medium; its purpose is to help an audience visualise what the speaker is saying. The purpose of a presentation should not be information transfer, it should be about enabling understanding and encouraging further action or research. 

The best way to make your slides more visual is to use images and diagrams as the evidence to support or illustrate your main point (your slide title). For example, if you want to show the results of a survey, pie charts or line charts are useful figures to display such information. 

Microsoft has offered several templates for academic presentation. They are available at this link.
