DIVERSITY IN THE URBAN LANDSCAPE:
SEMINAR ON MULTICULTURALISM IN THE UNITED STATES
Reading Reviews: This is a written engagement with the readings submitted online by 6PM on Wednesday May 8. Students are expected to move beyond the simple observations of a reader response in order to grapple with the texts analytically and argue for or against specific claims and evidence in 500 words or more. Choose one of the following 2 options in organizing your Reading Review, and noting that each option must be chosen at least twice during the quarter. The options are:
Option 1- Summary: Write one short paragraph on each reading, identifying its site,
perspective, argument, data (if any), evidence, methods, and claims.
Option 2- Critique: Analyze the ideas and data of one reading and challenge them with a convincing counterargument or reinterpretation of the evidence presented.
