Perspective
Reading Response Guidelines

MAKE
SURE YOU READ THIS ARTICLE, IN ORDER TO DO THE REQUIREMENTS BELOW: Article with the name:Esther Newton. Just One of the
Boys: Lesbians in Cherry Grove, 1960-1988.

The minimum length
requirement for the reading response is at least, 1 page in MS Word, double
spaced; 12 pt Time New Roman. Try to write a concise and meaningful response of
about this size. The substantial amount of text, that I request, should be
dense and thorough.

Here is one important thing for you to keep
in mind: please do structure your responses properly. It can’t be one chunk of
text – it needs to have structure, and dividing your text into logical
paragraphs is an important part of structure. This is a writing intensive
class, and it’s essential that students structure their writing appropriately.

The responses should address the
following questions:

1. What is the author’s main argument (or
arguments);
2.
What evidence does the author give to support the argument(s);
3. How does this article relate to your own
life and experience?
Make sure to
understand what the author’s main argument is. If you read inattentively, you
might have misinterpreted the real message. Make sure who the viewpoint belongs
to: the author or his/her subjects?

If you make general
statements, go beyond them and explain what you mean by using this or that
concept or term. Example: “people’s nature is the same around the
globe”. What do you mean by that? Same in what way? What do you mean by
nature?

Your responses are
graded. In this course, reading responses are one of the most important factors
on which your final grade depends. I can’t grade a short response: there just
isn’t enough information for me, as I can’t see how much of the text you read
and how well you understood the contents, not to mention the quality of
analytic work in short responses.

The response should be well structured. Don’t just offer a chaos of your
thoughts. Make a plan and think carefully, what ideas will come first and how
the response will logically unfold and end with conclusion. Good style of writing
will be a plus as well.

Skipping the details of the readings, go directly to the main point.
Make your own analytic observations and conclusions based on the evidence the
author used, the author’s ideas and your own experience.

In this class we study sexuality from cultural anthropological
perspective. Anthropologists study culture and the ways it is organized. Based
on the many accounts we will be reading, make a goal to understand the
mechanisms and logic of particular cultures and draw connections between social
institutions and cultural practices throughout history and nowadays.

Please use AAA format for this paper. I sent you a PDF file
with the AAA style-guide please do it according in my paper.
