Your response should illustrate your understanding of the text. The assignment should identify the key argument/idea of the reading and summarize key points. This assignment is about seeing you understand key points, NOT a statement of your opinion. Refrain from extensive introductions or preambles, just get right into the key ideas.
Please use paragraph format, and spell-check—no bullet points. Keep a copy for yourself on your computer or storage device in the event that the submitted assignment is lost or destroyed. Responses will be assessed based upon the quality and specificity of your summary as well as attention to key ideas from the reading.
