Purpose: You will be using a lot of skills we have addressed to effectively develop a reading response the articles we have read in class regarding immigration. Assignment: You should first annotate the text in a way that will help you write the summary of the article, as well as the response. Then, develop a summary for the articles. Finally, develop a reader response to this text. Summary: Your summary should contain the thesis, as well as main supporting ideas of the text. This objective summary should be written using your own words, maintaining the author’s assertions, but communicating them in your own language. In other words DON’T USE QUOTES. The last sentence of the summary should be your thesis – what you think about the immigration crisis and what should be done. Prompt/Response: What should we do about immigration? It is a question dividing our nation. On one side of the argument people are saying that we need to take drastic measures like building walls and banning people of a certain religion. The other side of the argument is saying that we are a country of immigrants – it’s at the core of our American Values – and that the purposed solutions are ineffective and offensive. What do you think? Craft your response using one of the articles that we have read for this unit as your focus article, and develop your claims around information in the article. Although you will be primarily responding to one of the articles we have read in class, you can use others to support your points if you wish. Outside article must be printed and turned in with your paper. Your reader response should address your overall feeling about the ideas expressed in the article. Then, choose three of the following supporting ideas to include as you explore the claim you make about the text. For each supporting idea, you should include a direct quotation to illustrate your discussion. You should also develop a conclusion paragraph that re-states the purpose of this essay. ? What does the text have to do with you, personally, and with your life (past, present or future)? ? How much does the text agree or clash with your view of the world, and what you consider right and wrong? ? What did you learn, and how much were your views and opinions challenged or changed by this text, if at all? ? How well does the text address things that you, personally, care about and consider important to the world? ? What can you praise about the text? What problems did you have with it? ? How well did you enjoy the text (or not) as entertainment or as a work of art? ? To sum up, what is your overall reaction to the text? Length Your essay should be at least three full pages, typed and double spaced. Please use Times New Roman, 12 point font.
