The objective is to deconstruct the framework of an article and analyze it using the concepts found within the class. Your critique will likely expose conflicting concepts and meaning, biases, and other weaknesses detracting from the ability of the article to help solve a problem. For example, if you read a Depression-era journal article about bank regulation, you will find its framework?s outdated assumptions will not help you address the problems facing twenty-first-century banks. (In fact, the framework may be the cause of current problem observed within the banking industry!) Thus, it is important to understand how to deconstruct an article, grapple with its utility, and possibly transform it into a relevant modern study or perspective.
You may be asking, Why do I need to learn about deconstruction? The ability to deconstruct an argument or article is an important skill for understanding whether research findings, conceptual frameworks, basic concepts, and conclusions remain relevant to your research. Determining whether a finding, concept, or other element of an article remains relevant offers a chance to build sound arguments using previous research, find research topics, and wrangle with decision and policy processes relying upon a mixture of concepts and data. Such opportunities avail you to the argument and its counterarguments surrounding research, business, and academic problems while enhancing your critical thinking skills. In essence, you will have the chance to develop a skill allowing you to see more than one side of an argument.
