The Reading Response Journal will consist of 1000 word (maximum) informal responses to each of the current week’s readings. . There is no specific prompt for the journal. It is also not a writing exercise that asks you to summarize the reading. Think of it as a space in which you reflect upon and think through what you’ve read–as a space in which you write about the questions, ideas, concerns, etc. raised for you in your reading of the text.
