Part 1: READING RESPONSE REFLECTIONS (FOCUSED)
Include a list of new and salient ideas, vocabulary (and names of important people and organizations),
information, issues, and perspectives learned from the weekâ€™s readings (you may use bulleted notes, and these may be brief).
This week’s readings are written by scholars within the disability studies community who also identify as disabled. Their unique insights and frustrations helps to deconstruct the everyday world and makes space for new interpretations.
Provide your reflection to the readings. You may use the following questions to guide you:
1) How did the readings for the week help you understand and/or rethink the topic for the week?
2) How have the readings supported and/or contradicted what you thought before?
3) Were there ambiguities, contradictions, areas of concern and/or confusions among the readings, explain the significance?
4) How do the readings inform your philosophy of Disability Services for Neurodiverse Students?
5) And/or were the readings useful (if so, to whom), explain?
Try to focus on your analysis rather than a summary of the articles.
Length: Total of approximately 250 Words (1 page â€“ Fill the page) for Reading Response (this includes the list and your reflection)
Part 2: GIVE A SYNOPSIS OF THE READINGS IN YOUR OWN WORDS (1 PAGE PER READING â€“ 2 PAGES TOTAL)
Your responses should be SUBSTANTIVE (but, not overly exhaustive when appropriate): they should demonstrate a serious engagement with the text(s), all claims you make should be fully and completely explained and claims about what the text says should be backed with PROPER quotations and/or evidence from the text. Be sure to provide enough reference information in your responses so that we can find the page/quotation/etc. that you are referring to or discussing in your responses.
YOU MAY NOT USE ANY OUTSIDE SOURCES â€“ ONLY WHAT IS PROVIDED.
This should focus more on your REFLECTION / REACTION (Light Citation 3-4 should be incorporated) in approximately 1 page (1 page â€“ Fill the page) per reading. Cite the source after response
