Reading reflection #1 (due Sept 15)
What are reading reflections?
Reading reflections are a replacement for the reading quizzes that would usually take place in IAT-339. 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.
- 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 seven available.
- You may complete up to three reflections and the lowest grade will be dropped.
While reading or after reading "What a Year of Learning and Teaching Accessibility Taught Me" (Soueidan, 2019) 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 15 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 using a standard citation format and 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).
