The response must be 500 to 800 words, 12 font, and double-spaced. More than a summary of the reading, I expect you to engage critically with it. This may include, but is not limited to: providing salient points, expanding on issues you find interesting, problematizing some of them if you wish, and putting them in dialogue with your own ideas/experiences. The prose of the paper should be fluid and cohesive. Full paragraphs must be used. Bullet points are not acceptable. Use proper formatting (Chicago or MLA are acceptable) and citation etiquette. All materials used in the responses (and in your writing more generally), whether quoted verbatim or paraphrased, should be properly cited. This include class slides and past writings by yourself.
