Responding to Literature [WLO: 2] [CLO: 5]Prepare Icon

Prepare: Prior to writing your initial post, read Chapters 1 through 3 of Journey into Literature.

Reflect Icon

Reflect: As you explored in the The Value of Literature discussion, literature can provide us with a multitude of perspectives, ideas, and experiences. Additionally, there is a long tradition of critical reading and writing about literature (i.e., analyzing literature to seek a deeper understanding about various interests and concerns). Chapter 2 in our course textbook focuses on these ideas. Consider why people develop responses to literature and how reading and writing a literary response is a worthwhile endeavor.
