Response Papers. A two-page essay is due every other Monday in class. The response paper is due as a hard copy and should be double-spaced, written in Times New Roman 12 with one-inch margins. Each paper will cover the readings for the previous two weeks, including the reading assigned on the date that the paper is handed in. These essays must reflect and directly reference the arguments and points made in at least two course readings, but can also integrate current events and issues. These assignments do not have to follow the format of an analytical paper, but should be organized and well written with a clear theme and introductory paragraph. Emphasis should be put on thinking critically about the issues in the readings and the papers should reflect your personal opinions and arguments on the subjects and theories that you have read. These response papers should not summarize the readings. Each paper will cover the previous two weeks of readings
