Format: This assignment will be one-page in length, doubled-spaced, typed, using a 12-point font, spellchecked, grammatically correct, with well-developed thoughts and sentence structure. The margins should be no more than an inch around. Read one of the articles listed on Blackboard and write a one-paper response/reaction (summarize the material in the article in the first paragraph and use the remainder of the page to record your reaction).
Write your full name on top of the paper followed by caption “Extra Credit” Then write the title of the article you selected in CAPITAL LETTERS and center it. Skip one line and start your first paragraph.
In the 1st paragraph, write an informative summary of the article. The summary should allow the reader to get a general sense of all key aspects of the article. Condense the content of the article by highlighting its main points and key supporting points. Do not include your personal reaction in this part of the paper as that should be in the next paragraph of the paper.
The next paragraphs should include your personal reaction. Focus on the following questions: Why did you choose this article? Is the article related to any ideas and concerns discussed in class? How is the material in the article related to your life, experiences, feelings and ideas? What emotions did the article arouse in you? Did the article increase your understanding of a particular issue? Did it change your perspective in any way?
Please follow this format: The response paper will be one-page in length, doubled-spaced, typed, 12-point font, spellchecked, grammatically correct, with well-developed thoughts and sentence structure. The margins should be no more than an inch around.
Here are some important elements to consider as you prepare a report:
Organize your material. Make sure each paragraph presents and develops a single main point. The first paragraph summarizes the article, and the following paragraphs your personal reactions to the article. Closes the paper with a short concluding sentence;
Again, summarize the article with the first paragraph followed by two or more paragraphs containing your personal reaction, followed by a conclusion. Use transition statements to bridge each paragraph;
Support any general points you make or attitudes you express with specific reasons and details. Statements such as “I agree with many ideas in this article” or “I found the book very interesting” are meaningless without specific evidence that shows why you feel as you do;
You may use very short quotations, but do not rely on them too much. Use them only to emphasize key ideas;
Edit the paper carefully for errors in grammar, punctuation, word use, and spelling.
