Reading reflection #1 (due May 25)
What are reading reflections?
Reading reflections are a replacement for the reading quizzes that would usually take place in IAT-334. They are to be completed either while doing the reading or immediately after. An overview:
- Should take between 30-90 minutes to complete, depending on how quickly you read.
- You will be asked to highlight portions of the text either in the PDF or on a print-out and submit it (digitally).
- There will be some questions that require reflection on your highlights.
- They will be due before the following lecture.
At least five reading reflections are required by the end of the term. There are ten total. If you complete extra the lowest grades get dropped.
Remember you only need to complete five reflections over the term (there are ten available).
While reading or after reading "The Anatomy of Sketching (Chapter 9)" (Buxton, 2007) please highlight portions of the text that you believe are part of the argument or claims of the author.
Once done highlighting, please:
- State what you believe the author is claiming.
- Describe how the author makes and/or supports their claim with three examples.
- Explain if you agree or disagree with the author, and why.
Your responses can be submitted anytime before the lecture on May 25 to the reading reflection on Canvas.
This reading reflection is worth 4% (4 points) of your final grade.
- 0.5 points for submitting your reading with highlights as requested.
- 0.5 points for a clear and concise statement of what the author is claiming.
- 1.5 points are given for three examples and descriptions of how the author makes and/or supports their claim (0.5 points per example and description).
- 1.5 points for explaining if you agree or disagree with the author and why.
