Reading reflection #1 (due January 8)
What are reading reflections?
Reading reflections are a replacement for the reading quizzes that would usually take place in IAT-235. They 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.
- Will be completed on paper, during your lab time.
- You will be asked to highlight portions of the text on a print-out and submit it with your reflection.
- There will be questions that require reflection on your highlights.
- They will be due before the end of your lab time.
How reflections work
- You only need to complete two reflections over the term.
- There are nine available.
- You may complete up to three reflections and the lowest grade will be dropped.
- AI use is not permitted in reflections.
Reading reflections must be done in-person during lab times. Bring a print-out of the reading to lab if you choose to do the reflection.
While reading or after reading "Rhythm and Balance (48-59), Hierarchy (128-139)" (Lupton, 2015) please highlight sentences in the text that you do not understand or find confusing.
Once done highlighting, please:
- Select two highlights that you did not understand or found confusing.
- Explain what was not understood or confusing about each highlight.
- Explain why you believe this highlight was not understood or confusing to you.
Your TA will have a print-out for completing the reading reflection on in your January 8 lab. You will need to provide a print-out of the reading. Reading reflections must be completed in the lab time.
