Three (3) motivated questions of 2 pages: You can write them in one of two ways:
1. You come up with a thoughtful question after reviewing the dayâ€™s reading(s), and base a question on any issues the readings raise or challenges they pose. Then you explain what leads you to ask that question.
You write 2 pages on why the question you are posing is an important question and what motivates you to ask it, or you spend those two pages analyzing the importance of the passage you selected. You may put texts in conversation with one another; point out contradictions you see in the readings, etc. You should cite text to support your points. Please include a short summary of the textâ€™s main argument. Contextualize your question in terms of topics we are discussing in class. The short response papers prepare you for class and help me understand how you are engaging the material. These are the essential characteristics.
