Reading reflection #1 (due Sept 6)
What are reading reflections?
Reading reflections are to be completed either while doing the reading or immediately after. An overview:
- Should take between 15-60 minutes to complete, depending on how quickly you read.
- You will be asked to highlight portions of the text on a print-out and submit it in the same class.
- There will be some questions that require reflection on your highlights.
- They will be due before the end of lecture.
How reflections work
- You only need to complete two reflections over the term.
- There are eight available.
- You may complete up to three reflections and the lowest grade will be dropped.
While reading or after reading "Designing the Mind" (The Standardistas, 2011) please highlight sentences in the text that evoke a strong response from you (positive, negative, or otherwise).
Once done highlighting, please:
- Select two highlights that evoked a strong response from you.
- Explain what was your response and why each highlight evoked a strong response.
Your responses can be submitted anytime before the end of lecture on Sept 6 to Andrew in class.
This reading reflection is worth 5% (5 points) of your final grade.
- 0.5 points for submitting your reading with highlights as requested.
- 1 point for clearly citing which two highlighted portions of the text you are referring to by including a quote and/or indicating a page or paragraph number (0.5 points per portion cited).
- 3.5 points for an on-topic explanation of what was your response and why each highlight evoked a strong response (1.75 points per explanation).
