The reading response papers should do three things: (1) Briefly summarize key
points from the reading, (2) critically reflect and evaluate the author’s ideas and assertions, and (3)
articulate what arguments and assertions were illuminating, or helpful, or provocative. Make clear and
specific points while demonstrating engagement with the reading for best results. Each reading
response should be 4 full pages, double spaced, Times New Roman or Helvetica, 12 pt. font.
