For the first reading response, select one chapter from our Grabbs, Reitz, and Hwang textbook that we’ve read or will read in Module 1. This means your options are: chapters 1, 3, 4, 7, 10, 16, 17, or 18. From your chosen chapter, select one of the “Questions for Critical Thought” that appear at the end of the chapter. Respond to this question in 600 to 700 words. This constitutes your response! I’ll mark that out of 12 points using rubric

You’ll do this again in Module 2 for your second reading response.

An example for Module 1:

Perhaps you enjoyed reading Chapter 3: Class Formation in Canada. Out of the questions posed on page 39 (end of the chapter), perhaps you like No.1: Outside of sociology classes, do you think of yourself and your family in terms of class? If so, what class? If not, what identity or identities are important to you?

In 600 to 700 words, respond to the question and engage with ideas and concepts from our readings to show what you know and what connections you can make! You will likely pull ideas from Chapter 3 in this case, but may also find ideas from other chapters — like chapters 1 and 4 — useful too. That’s great! Just be sure to cite your sources in-text and through a reference list. 

Note that the chapters have different authors, so your citations will need careful attention here. For Chapter 3, the author is Jim Conley and an in-text citation might look like this: (Conley, 2017, p. 37). For Chapter 4, the author is Peter Urmetzer and an in-text citation might look like this: (Urmetzer, 2017, p. 49). Reference list entries would look like this:
