critique should include the following three parts: First, convey your understanding of the authors major
points; that is, their overall message. Second, your reflection about the reading—what it means to you as an
educator/student. Third, your critique should focus on the power relations promoted by the author’s Truth, that is,
how it would affect people of different economic classes, genders, and ethnicities if schools and society accepted
the author’s truth(s)? Use subtitles for these three different sections.
