CASIIR, This assignment could be on week 8 or 9 so I went with the easier writing version (1 chapter versus 2 chapters) Need a critical Summary on: Introduction to Systems Theory. Chapter I: Sociology and Systems Theory. Niklas Luhmann.
The critical summary is a 2-page (double spaced) maximum 3-page assignment. You will spend approximately 1 to 1.5 pages giving a succinct summary of the main point or argument of the reading. For the second 1 to 1.5 pages (approximately) you with offer your own critical engagement with the text. This may take many forms.
For example: criticize as aspect of the authors argument; bringing in new
lines of support for the authors position; raising and addressing important but
unaddressed questions arising from the article; applying ideas or concepts from
the text in a different context; considering how some ideas in the text may complement
or conflict with ideas in other relevant texts related to the subject domain. Self Note: Week 9 assignment
