You will eventually write a response explaining what you learned from your book (at least two total pages, double-spaced). Please practice being as specific as possible in your written response. Better to offer lots of detail about one or two questions, episodes, or passages than to summarize lots of material. This is intended to be low-pressure work.

Questions to Consider as You Read:

  • How is the subject’s life similar to yours?
  • • How is their life different than yours? What about their experience is unimaginable in your life?
  • • What issues, struggles, or goals from the book feel familiar to you?
  • • Are any strategies the subject uses to cope with these issues similar to those you use in your life? How are their strategies different from yours?
