reaction paper format
You will be asked to reflect and write on the issues discussed in class and generated by any additional readings. These are due at the beginning of class. You must have attended the class for the paper to be accepted and graded. One make-up reaction paper will be accepted, if negotiated with me and with the stipulation presented in our first class session.
Papers should follow the following format:
Each paper should be 1-2 pages in length, typed, double-spaced.
Headings must include your name, the date and the topic of the class attended. Also indicate the Reaction Paper #___.
Clearly state (number, bold, or bullet) one-three specific topics/thoughts/ideas you are reacting to. Agree or disagree and/or point out concepts that were important, using quotes or concepts from readings, the speaker, and/or class discussions; add any past experiences and feelings that validate your reaction/reflection.
Thought/Reaction Papers will be graded based on the following criteria:
-heading (see below)
-formatting (length, typed, double-spaced)
-one-three specific topics/thoughts/ideas, clearly listed
-quality of thoughts/response/reaction
-spelling, punctuation, grammar
Example of heading:
