History of Higher Education for Women

1. What’s the Point of the Book?

Most authors of non-fiction advance a statement(or point), which is something that holds the book together in addition to its covers. Your job is to find that point and present it, together with specific illustrations that will serve to make the book’s generalizations clear.

2. How Well Does the Author Support the Point of the Book?

Here you are asked to evaluate the book by discussing its persuasiveness. If the author is attempting to describe an event, he/she is attempting to persuade you that the event occurred, or that a state of affairs exists, and/or that it impacted future events. How adequately does the author support this point by evidence? Does the author cite the sources of the information used as evidence? If there are notes or bibliography, take a look at them. Moreover, does the author go beyond mere description and attempt to explain the event or state of affairs? If he/she offers an explanation, are you persuaded this is the only possible explanation of the event, or does the author ignore other possibilities?

Next, does the author go beyond description and explanation and attempt to evaluate the event or the state of affairs? Read between the lines if necessary to discover how the author feels about the story being told. Here also is an opportunity for you to comment on the author’s style of presentation. Finally, remember that criticism means evaluating, not just fault-finding. Summarize the weaknesses of the book (no book is perfect), but summarize as well its strengths. Weigh weaknesses and strengths to arrive at a summary judgment.

3. What Difference Does the Book Make?
Discuss the significance of the book by discussing if the author raises questions worth asking. To answer this third question, you must discover linkages between the book and this course. How does the book support, elaborate, or contradict other materials dealt with in this course? You might also link the book to your personal experiences outside this course.

Within these guidelines, prepare a 3-4 page book review that meets all of the above requirements and addresses the subsections, focus, and elements outlined in Dr. O’Brien’s guide.
