Criteria for writing a science article review

If the article is taken from the internet or a magazine the length of the article must be at least two pages long. It is difficult to find a lengthy article in the newspaper so I am making the requirement length shorter if the source is the newspaper. However, the article should at least occupy half of the page of the newspaper.

Be sure to highlight the article before writing the summary. At the very least your facts in the summary, and the direct quote and statistics that you used in the reflection should be highlighted. Other facts, that you deem interesting could be highlighted as well.
