Reading Responses are writing and thinking activities that allow students to engage with the course readings. They are designed to serve as a course resource to help student-players establish conceptual grounds and engagements for later course work. That is, Reading Responses are not just busy work, nor just mechanisms to ensure students are doing the course reading, but are opportunities for students to stumble upon key ideas or concerns that they might later pursue in course work.
There are 5 Reading Responses available to students in this course.
– RR1 and RR3 are designed around summarizing course readings.
– RR2 and RR4 are for engaging and applying key ideas from course readings.
– RR5 is for engaging concepts, issues, and connections that emerge across course readings.
Reading Response 1 and Reading Response 3 should be submitted for grading on the day we discuss the reading in class.
Reading Responses 2 and Reading Response 4 should be submitted for grading within five calendar days of discussing the reading in class.
Reading Response 5 should be submitted for grading within 7 days of discussing the reading in class.
Failure to stay within these “turn in” time frames will result in the work not being accepted.
