Brief discussion of how the source is relevant to your subtopic of interest and why you chose it
Brief description of the source – research question findings key information etc.
Evaluation of strengths of source in addressing your subtopic of interest (note: if it is not helpful at all, it is not a good source and should not be included)
Evaluation weaknesses regarding how helpful the source was in addressing your subtopic of interest.
Comparative analysis – compare/contrast how this source addresses your subtopic of interest in comparison to another source (note: no source should be used in this section more than twice.
This could be based on type of methodology used, size of sample hypothesis, findings, how variable are measured, etc. If you analyze source 1 in comparison to source 2, then your source 2 analysis should be compared to a source other than source 1. Keep in mind all analysis should relate back to your research question.
