Essay 1 – A Critique of “If Money Doesn’t Make You Happy, Then You Probably Aren’t Spending It Right”
3 citations and a Works Cited page required
This essay follows the “Critical Reading and Critique” chapter (Chapter 2). Please read the entire chapter, paying very close attention to the Model Critique section, pages 67-74, and Guidelines for Critiques, page 65.
Read the essay “If Money Doesn’t Make You Happy, Then You Probably Aren’t Spending It Right,” by Dunn et.al., pages 437-447.
Write a critique of this essay. Your paper should be 750-800 words (approximately 3 ½ pages). Use Word or Rich Text Format. Be sure to use appropriate MLA heading (see Model Critique) and double space.
A critique involves some summarizing, so you should briefly summarize the principles that the authors presented, but a critique goes beyond summary, as you will note in Chapter 2. Part of your critique will be your response. Prompt #4 on page 448 will help you with that part.
Note that the Works Cited page will have only one entry. Use model #24 on page 407 of your Hacker handbook on page: One or more selections from an anthology. Our textbook is an anthology (a collection of writings by different writers). Do not use any sources except the Dunn et.al. essay.
