I need an explanation for this Social Science question to help me study.
1) Summarize the book. Tell the reader what you read.
(2) Describe what was important, and why. If you want to, describe parts that were not valuable, and why. In doing this, you might comment on the author’s perspective. What she neutral or biased and does this influence her presentation?
(3) Evaluate the significance of the book. Is the book important or unimportant, and why? What does the book contribute to our understanding of society? Remember, chances are the book would not be assigned if your instructor thought it was not important.
Throughout the above, be sure to provide the occasional example. You want to make sure that you show the instructor that you did read the book.
