Please remember your reaction paper should be a maximum of 300 words, written professionally, and addresses the three key questions mentioned in the syllabus (i.e., what did you find interesting/valuable, what are the weaknesses or aspects you disagree with, and how will you use or apply this new knowledge).

The reaction papers will be scored on the key criterion of how well you have addressed the three required elements/questions in your write-up on a 3-point scale (0 – inadequate/not submitted; 0.5 – minimal analysis/room for elaboration; 1 – Meets/Exceeds expectations). That is, to score a full mark you should aim to exhibit a thorough and rigorous analysis and assessment of the content.
