Do not simply write a summary of the article or critique the topic itself. Your main purpose is to critique the authors presentation of logic, facts, reason, analysis, stance, etc. Though you can briefly critique the topic in your conclusion, at least ninety percent of the entire paper should be the critique of the author.
