Reading Response 10

Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing project and need support to help me learn.

Reading Response Instructions

Reading is an integral component of this course. Many of the readings I have assigned you may find difficult due to the length, complexity, unfamiliar structure and language, or abstract concepts. Because these readings are complex, it is important that you annotate them as a reader, especially if you don’t fully understand them as you read. The reading response assignments are designed to help you with that. These responses are meant to be low-stakes. Don’t worry too much about getting the “right” answers; the responses are here to help you think about what you’re reading and to prepare you for class discussion.

Suggested Reading Approach

  1. Make sure you have the time and energy to devote to the reading(s).
  2. Look over the Reading Response prompts and reflect on our Unit project. Keep these in mind as you read and annotate.
  3. Skim the reading(s) and pay close attention to section headings and pull out quotes (no more than 5 minutes).
  4. Read and annotate the text. Annotating is key!
  5. Take time to reflect on your reading. Try to explain what you’ve just read to someone else (or to yourself, if no one is around). Talking about a reading can help the content stick and can help you work through unclear concepts.
  6. Write your responses to the reading prompts I’ve provided (approximately 250 words). These do not have to be written in an “academic” voice. A good response will address the prompts, ask new questions, challenge conclusions, and/or make connections between this text and other texts or this text and your own life experiences.
  7. Provide in-text and work cited citations for any information you use that comes from the reading(s). These responses will likely be citation heavy since the prompts are asking you to draw on content from the readings.

How to Annotate

Annotations should help you make connections between different sections of the article, between this article and other articles, and between this article and your own experiences. To annotate, you should underline, highlight, bracket, or circle important information in the text. Then, you should write something next to it to help you remember why it has been marked. Main ideas, theses, supporting evidence, new claims, new/important terms, or personally relevant information should be marked. NOTE: marking too much is as unhelpful as marking nothing.
