You are asked to write reading responses for ten weeks. Instructions below. You have two weeks where you do not have to write reading responses.

Write a response for each reading on the syllabus. If there are two or three readings in a week, you may read them both and comment on them using the guidelines below.

Or you can just focus more on one, if you prefer. Your choice.
Each week should be about 200-250 words.

Note that you may focus your analysis more on one reading each week but try to think of how the readings fit together thematically.

Hand in to your Tutorial Quercus Page in the dropbox corresponding to the week.
