What thoughts or emotions do the readings provoke? Do the ideas seem relevant to anything in your own life? We do not want answers to these specific questions! They are examples of the sorts of things you might want to think about as you read and then write. The questions above are intended to demonstrate that we do not want you to summarize each of the selections one by one. What we want is your best analytical thinking and an integrative response to the overall theme of the readings. Please do NOT summarize the reading, write your reflection about the reading.
