interpret the author’s meaning in your own words(this is a descriptive interpretation, not a judgment); (3) Clarify what is at stake in the reading

In two pages, you should: (1) Cite a key passage from the reading (directly quote, provide page #); (2) Unpack/interpret the author’s meaning in your own words(this is a descriptive interpretation, not a judgment); (3) Clarify what is at stake in the reading (why does it matter?); and (4) Write one related question for discussion you think is worthwhile. (You may agree/disagree at this point, but go beyond a thumb up or down response).
