READ the following article: Carolyn Dean, “The Trouble with (The Term) Art,” 2006
Settings , and write a response paper (800-word minimum to 1000-word maximum) in which you do the following:
As you read the article, see if the author provides compelling evidence to support her claims. Does she follow through on the argument presented in her thesis statement? After you’ve read the article, ask yourself if the author’s argument is relevant. How does it relate to our course material? Does she appear to have any biases that would unfairly prejudice her research? Address all these questions in your response. This is a critical response, not a summary of the article you’ve read. Your responses should be critically engaged. Do not generalize or summarize. Provide specific examples from the article to support your point of view.
Avoid numerous or long direct quotes. If you do quote or paraphrase, be sure to cite your source. You should always cite your sources for anything you write, every time. To not do so constitutes plagiarism. A reading response paper doesn’t typically include multiple outside sources (it’s not a research paper)–unless your want to use them, which is be fine. The best format for a reading response paper is to follow the in-text citation style guide at link below. If you only cite the article you’re responding to, then you are only using one source. For this, you can simply give all the article information in your introductory paragraph, which you should do anyway– so no need for “sources” list at bottom of your paper. Then follow the guide for the style you prefer (see three options at link below) for in-text citation. In this case, typically just the page number. The important thing is to be consistent throughout your paper for the style you choose. If you do cite outside sources, then you need to list them at the bottom of your paper with in-text citation as directed in the guide.
*Be sure to have a look at the rubric criteria, below, for which you will be assessed. Once your paper has been graded, be sure to read the comments/feedback embedded in the rubric, and/or provided in the comment bubble below your grade.
