Two paragraphs describing at least 2 of the main points from the reading or video in more detail. Each paragraph should be dedicated to one of these main points.
A short paragraph presenting your thoughts on the reading or video. This should be your authentic perspective and viewpoint of the content, and not a regurgitation of what it's about. (Questions to trigger ideas: How does this impact your life? In what ways have you seen these themes show up in the lives of your family, friends and loved ones? How do you see these themes play out on a national, or global, level?) Share your authentic opinion in your own words.
A question for class discussion. Remember to include your question! It is worth 4 of your 20 points and will be discussed in class. This should be a genuine, thoughtful question to raise during class discussion. Do not put it in "Yes/No" format, but in formats that generate dialogue such as "How," "Why," "In what ways," etc.
