I’m working on a Art & Design exercise and need support.

Reading Responses

These responses/reflections (one-two page) are not simply summaries of the articles or lectures but include each student’s own perspective, what was unique or valuable, and concerns the student might have with the application in practice. Late submissions will receive a 10% deduction each day they are late.

Demonstrate careful reading, synthesize what you learned,

and apply those lessons to a relevant, everyday experience.
The best responses have personal stories tied to the
reading/lecture material.
