Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Write a two- or three-paragraph reflection about each of the five assigned articles. Summarize each writer’s topic and point of view (or thesis, if there is one), and assess the content, support, tone, and other aspects of each writer’s approach. In each case, what kinds of material could a person gather in order to research the topic more fully? What “larger” topics or sets of issues does each article suggest? (Submit your finished reflections via the Uploads link when you’re done.
