200-word Journal Responses.
Your responses must demonstrate not only an understanding of the text in question, but also critical engagement with it. This engagement may look like elaborating on an idea presented by the author, arguing against an author’s point, questioning a concept, pushing a claim further, or analyzing the features of a text. Essentially, your task is to comment on the text in any meaningful way. It is important that your responses do not simply summarize the text; instead, you should thoughtfully appraise some aspect of the text that has provoked your interest. This is your opportunity to investigate the text and, in doing so, show off your own ideas.
