- The first paragraph should be a brief summary of the main argument of the reading. It should answer such questions as: What is the author’s argument? With what evidence does the author support their argument (methods)? Which individuals/groups, geographic region(s), issue(s) does the reading focus on? How does the reading change or complicate how we understand a particular issue? What broader conversations in anthropology is this reading responding to? (You do not need to answer all of these questions, but you should use them as guidelines.)
- The second paragraph should focus on your reflections upon the reading. What did you find particularly striking or important in the reading? How does it relate to other readings/films/podcasts that we have engaged in this course? What specific overlaps or contradictions did you notice?
