This is a short, critical reflection that synthesizes weekly readings in a thoughtful and critical way. It reflects a close reading of the work, contains specific examples drawn from the text (documented parenthetically with page numbers), and provides your analysis of the core themes, arguments, evidence of the weekly readings. The mini-paper demonstrates that you have engaged substantively with the readings, internalized and contextualized their arguments, and can articulate and substantiate your reactions to it with specific evidence from the text.
I attached the 2 long readings and also paper instruction. I want you to read these 2 readings and write critical reflection. The instruction is very clear and helpful, so please carefully check it.
Also this is a feedback from the instructor for the previous critical reflection which I wrote. I want you to follow this feedback as well.
—-This is a fine engagement with some of the core themes from the reading.
A few points to improve on for future reflections: 1.) Focus more on your analysis and less on a summary of the content of the reading. Much of your paragraphs really just summarize the two chapters we read. As a short reading reflection, it’s okay to jump right into the analysis. 2.) It’s important to have a main idea or ideas for your reflection, and I found it hard to pull out what the key takeaway(s) was/were for you. 3.) You should ideally engage with specific portions of the readings with page numbers for reference. 4.) Don’t hesitate to use the word “I”– for example, “Reading this, I was struck by …” This will help you make clear exactly what questions or points you think are important and why.—-
