Reading reflection #1 (due May 20)
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 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 four reading reflections are required by the end of the term. There are eight total. If you complete extra the lowest grades get dropped.
Remember you only need to complete four reflections over the term. There are eight available.
While reading or after reading "What a Year of Learning and Teaching Accessibility Taught Me" (Soueidan, 2019) please highlight portions of 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.
- Briefly explain what was your response and why each highlight evoked a strong response.
Your responses can be submitted anytime before the lecture on May 20 to the reading reflection on Canvas.
This reading reflection is worth 2.5% (2.5 points) of your final grade.
- 0.5 points are given for submitting your reading with highlights as requested.
- 1 point is given for clearly citing which two highlighted portions of the text you are referring to (0.5 points per portion cited).
- 1 point is given for a brief explanation of what was your response and why each highlight evoked a strong response (0.5 points per explanation).
