I used questions from Yuriko Baldin as guides for my review of the vignette. These are the questions:
- Identify the motivating central problem of the text and comment its importance. Then, comment if the problem is accessible, with brief justification of your answer. Comment also if the text clarified the motivating problem.
- Identify the results or questioning that the article intends to transmit or to raise. Point one or more parts of the text out that called your attention and you appreciated them more, with brief justification.
- Select the contents you found more difficult to follow. Identify them and specify the type of difficuty whether technical, conceptual, notation, language, etc. Comment shortly a possible cause of the difficulty. [It is recommended not to stop the reading at the sight of the first difficulty. Try not to miss the objective of the text, try to keep the attention to critically identify the types and the causes of the diffculty.]
- Contribute with suggestions that could help the text to be more accessible to the target public, especially about the needed complementary texts, references ( books, texts, articles, programs, websites, etc) that you know about the topic of the text you read. Comment also about the contents that could be included in the programs of professional development courses for teachers that may help them to read and appreciate the text.
- About the connections of the subject of the text with school curriculum: a) identify one or more topics of the secindary school curriculum to which the text may connect, with brief justification; b) comment a way in which the topic of the article could be worked out in a secondary school classroom; c) comment the validity of this article for the knowledge of a school teacher, even in the case the teacher does not take the subject into his/her teaching practice.
