Each reaction paper will be a 2-page, double-spaced typed response that addresses each of the following questions in the form of a complete sentence or as a short answer. Well argued perspectives, familiarity with the readings, concise writing style, and proofread papers are expected.
Major Claims: What is/are the major claim(s) set forth by the author(s)? A claim is the basic argument of a writer, which is then proven over the course of the article. Rather than trying to detail every nuance of a writer’s claim(s), try to narrow your choice down to one specific or overarching claim that can be summarized in one or two sentences.
Significance/Impact: What do you think is significant about these claims? In other words, how do these claims impact the study of gender, sexuality, and women’s studies?
Important Concepts: In your opinion, what are two important/interesting concepts or terms introduced in the reading? How would you summarize or define these using your own words?
Notable Quotation: What was the most interesting, enlightening, provocative, or wrong statement in this reading and why? Write down the exact quotation (use APA 6th Edition formatting to cite all sources) as well as a brief response to explain what you thought about it.
Staggering Statistic/Evidence: List a statistic or piece of evidence from the reading (cited using APA 6th Edition formatting). How does this evidence support or complicate the writer’s major claim(s)?
