Read 5 essays then do 5 reading responses
After you finish reading an essay you will need to write a formal response analyzing the essay. As you read think about the essay. How is it written? Does it tell a story, lay out an argument, provide information..? What is the point of the essay? Is it well written? If not, why not? Where does it succeed and where does it fail? Be specific. If you are bored, why are you bored? Refer to the text to support your claim about the writer’s style and effectiveness.

Post responses to the last five essays here. They must be posted together. Make sure your name is on every page and that you’ve written about two pages for each of the essays you’ve read.

Type in size 12-font, double-space, and use one-inch margins. Avoid writing in first-person.

. Remember this is a critical thinking assignment meant to focus your attention on what works and what fails in the writing of an essay. Your focus is on the writing. The content of the essay is not the focus of this assignment. Still, sensitivity to the subject matter drives every writer’s choice.
