A 300 word minimum response paper on the assigned text book reading for that week is due.
It is not and I do not want a summary of the readings. It is to be your own original thoughts and opinions on the assigned readings. Showing me that you have an understanding of the material, what it makes you think, feel, believe… tells me you understood it, that you got something from it. Spitting out some basic summary tells me nothing and can be done without you really having read the material. You need to show me that you learned. This is purely on the readings assigned. Think of it like an in person conversation, what would you say if I asked you to explain what you got from the readings, what you thought of the readings
These assignments need not conform to any particular essay format, I ask only that you use proper english and complete sentences, and that it be a minimum of 300 words (yes I will check).
