Reaction Statement to assigned reading


Reaction Statement to assigned reading

Reaction statements should be at least 700 words in length (single spaced, 10-12 pt. Times New Roman font) and should be in response to the assigned

readings and weekly content that includes at least two critical questions for discussion. Please do not provide a mere summary of the readings.

Instead, please provide a thoughtful, scholarly reaction to the readings/content. Your reaction may include but is not limited to areas of

agreement/disagreement, affirmation (or you can offer a counter argument with outside academic resource support), or other influences/connections. Your

reaction statements should represent critical reflective thought.

You may want to consider some of the following guiding questions when preparing your reaction statement:

What biases does the author have? Are these biases stated or implied?
From what theoretical perspective does the author work?
What biases did you bring to the reading?
How was your learning enhanced or hindered when you read from your own perspective formed by your collective life experiences and theoretical

How did this reading and analysis challenge, extend, and/or align with your notions of how the world works?
Are there silent/missing ideas, concepts, or themes in this reading? How do you account for these gaps?
What new questions have you raised as a result of your reading and analysis?
