Response papers on ”of to the United States”
Students will also be required to submit short response papers (about two pages, double-spaced) addressing readings assigned for two separate classes (not the lectures). Briefly summarize/discuss the readings and describe your personal reactions/opinions (commentary) about the readings and topic. Papers should show evidence that you did all the readings (you should not just write about your own opinion based on your general knowledge of the topic or respond to only one or two specific things that the readings happen to mention). Good response papers should do more than merely summarize the readings.
Your response paper will be graded based on the following criteria:
a) Content (45% of grade): Is the student using and/or referencing material from the readings?
b) Reaction (30% of grade): Is the student expressing a thoughtful response/opinion/commentary about the reading/topic?
c) Organization and writing (25% of grade): Is the paper well-organized and written?
