PA510: Administrative ThoughtShort Critical Papers – What are they? Critical papers usually consists of two to three very directed questions to help you synthesize scholarly debates. This means that you must pay attention to the argument that is being made and the assumptions within the arguments. A critical assessment means that you are discussing scholars’ arguments in the context of the debates and critiques surrounding the arguments (Rosenbloom readings [Waldo] is a good example of critique of the early models). You are demonstrating your understanding of the various arguments that have been made concerning the points to be covered in the paper. A critical assessment is not your personal opinion of the scholarly arguments; it is, however, your interpretation of the scholarly arguments. Short critical papers give you the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of the concepts, assumptions, and theoretical arguments of public administration/policy theories and your synthesis of what we have covered.Format – The paper must be a Word document of six to ten (6-10) full pages of organized text, double-spaced, with a font size of 12.
