Read the assigned text carefully, then prepare a 2 page essay reflecting on, and responding to the text. No sources are needed for this, but you are advised to use what we discussed in class to ground your opinion and reach an educated reflection on the text. After presenting what you think to be the article’s main argument, find an idea or two that draw you to the article, present your idea(s) as best you can, then interact (critique, explain, refute, etc) with the idea(s) presented. As will all academic writing, this must be cohesive with a clear thesis statement in your introductory paragraph, a development of paragraphs that link to the thesis statement, and a conclusion.
