What should my response be like?
Responses may take a variety of forms, but the typical assignment will be 300-400 words . In most cases, you won’t have a specific writing prompt. You will instead choose which aspects of the text you found most engaging and write about those.
Your response should do the following:
- – Reflect thoughtfully on course texts
- – Use quotes from the text when appropriate and supply page numbers
- – Take into account multiple perspectives on the issue at hand
- – Contribute interesting ideas or questions for discussion
- – Explore new insights
- – Show a willingness to engage with challenging material
- – Be respectful of other points of view
- – Avoid summarizing the text
