This is not an essay but an “engagement,” a thoughtful consideration of the ideas positioned in class and in the texts. If possible, try to include at least three quotations from the reading (do not cite the words or quotations in the class notes, it only helps you understand what we talk about in class, and help you get to the right track). Use the proper form for citations and references where required.
please read the class discussion notes and really get a sense of what we focus on, and correspond the idea with the reading. Our professor really cares about whether or not we do the reading and attend class, so please show it in the critical response, thank you so much!!
