Reaction Papers

  Reaction Papers are due every week and provide an opportunity for students to reflect, process and and interact with material covered in class discussions and readings.

  Use your Reaction Papers to, well, react with what you hear, read and think about. You do not necessarily have to agree with it all. But you do have to make your points logically, based on fact and not emotion.

  Each set of readings is accompanied by a series of questions or observations. These are merely meant as starting points, to spark your thinking; do not feel compelled to answer them in your papers though, of course, you can.

  Papers need be no particular length, other than to note that one page is probably not enough and 10 pages are likely more than enough.

  Reaction Papers must be typed, double-spaced and stapled with name, date, page number and total number of pages at the top of each page. Papers that do not conform with these standards are not acceptable.

  Make sure to make mention of both class discussions and readings in your papers as they are used to determine whether you attended class and read assigned material.
