Urban Studies Reading Response
You are required to produce eight reading responses of 200-400 words during the semester, each of which is worth five points. We will cover ten topics; you can choose which two you don’t want to write reading responses about. Note that you can only turn in one reading response per topic. Responses can consist of intelligent questions, disagreements with the texts, interesting insights, linkages between readings, linkages to current events, or even linkages to things happening in your own life. The reading responses should not merely summarize the texts. These responses are not expected to be formal, polished pieces of writing. However, they are expected to demonstrate that you have (a) read the material and (b) thought about the concepts and issues discussed in the readings.
