I review a student sample of an Abstract & Critique in the last few minutes of the video lecture for this assignment.
Check your originality score after submitting your paper. Ideally, your score should be less than 15%. If it is higher, than go back and look at what is highlighted on your paper and add appropriate citations. Higher scores are usually associated with excessive cut and pasting. Paraphrasing and citing within the text is the best route to take when writing. I am only concerned with the work that you are submitting as your own and do not give weight to titles of articles or templates.
