Ensure that your response essay has the key points in this document, for full credit consideration, I will be looking these points as I grade/give feedback (on) your response essays.1. Provide a summary of each article or book chapter assigned. Summarize the main argument and findings. Include any salient quotes you think are key to the main argument. Treat the summary as a guide so a reader would know where to turn to re-read a particular point (i.e. include page numbers in parenthesis if you want to use a direct quote from the reading to which you are responding. This does NOT mean filling the pages with direct quotes from the readings).2. After you have gauged and summarized the entire readings, write 2-3 paragraphs critically discussing the readings: their similarities and differences in argument as they relate the theme of that week.3. At the end of the essay and in 1-2 paragraphs, discuss the articles limitations— critically assess the authors’ arguments, the validity of the points they are raising with in their article. What did they (not) do well? I want to read your thoughts, and your thoughts is NOT saying: “I love the argument”, “I agree with the author” etc. Think through what you have read and ‘tear’ through it.4. As we will review theories of mass communication in this class (and as you have started reading), you should think about specific international communication theories as you gauge the readings, and where possible, apply them in writing your response essay.5. Be sure to number the pages of your whole document Note: A critical discussion/engagement with the readings does not mean that you just summarize the readings, but that you assess the readings and add your analytical voice to what the readings are proposing or opposing. Your grade for the response essay will drastically reduce if you just summarize the readings or simply copy and paste the quotes from them.
