First, answer these questions:
- What is the article’s claim/argument/thesis/major finding? (i.e., what is its purpose? what is it trying to convince you of?)
- What disciplines did the article appeal to/use/integrate?
- What evidence did the article employ to support its claim/argument/thesis/major finding?
Then: Consider how the article’s findings represent a real-world application of interdisciplinary studies. Using specific examples and evidence from the article, explain how an interdisciplinary approach/method/synthesis helped understand the problem or issue in a way that a disciplinary approach or method might not have.
