Provide a commentary on a single aspect of that week’s assigned reading.
What was being conveyed, elaborated, or argued?
Why did you find it interesting or provocative?
Did you agree or disagree? Why?
What are the implications of what was being conveyed, elaborated, or argued?
Should rely on your own reading, thinking, and analysis, not on outside research
No need to provide a bibliography, list of references, footnotes / citations
However, be sure to 1. Scope:
You can make the scope of your reading responses very narrow if you wish (eg. you could focus on one aspect of one letter reading – for example, you could focus on the subsection, “Citizen Control and the State” (p.2) of reading 1(a).
Or you could be broader and focus on the whole of an individual letter reading: 1 (a), 1 (b), 1 (c) etc. Either approach is satisfactory and one is not better than the other.
2. Structure: POINT – EVIDENCE – EXPLAIN (“PEE”)
Make your point, provide evidence (a brief quote or paraphrase), then explain how the evidence supports your point.
3. Quotations: Direct quotations can be very helpful.
Explain what you want me to see in the quote (PEE!)
Keep any quotes fairly short.
Don’t let the quote ‘speak for itself.’
