Reading Response Assignment Checklist
(Use this as a cover sheet for all your reading responses, even if you turn it in on Blackboard.)
This sheet should be attached to every Reading Response assignment with check marks visible that you have checked your paper and that it follows the requirements.
□ Double space your paper.
□ 2½- 3 pages -750-1,000 words – double-spaced, 12 pt. Times Roman font.
□ Is the paper in APA style with in-text citations for everything quoted or paraphrased? i.e. (Haller, 2010) or if it needs a page number for a direct quote, (Haller, 2010, p. 21). Punctuation like a period goes after the in-text citation. http://www.apastyle.org/learn/index.aspx
□ The paper should have a full reference list in alphabetical order and in APA style. Please make sure you have the required number of references.
□ The paper should include at least 3 direct quotes from 3 different readings and/or screenings from the assigned class readings/screenings. This assignment is for class readings, not other articles you find on your own.
□ Put the word count on the first page before the first paragraph.
□ Run spell and grammar check. Points will be taken off for misspellings and incorrect grammar.
□ Please follow American spelling and punctuation style. American English style is to use double quotation marks and for all punctuation to go inside quote marks.
□ Italicize book titles.
□ Make sure the content of your paper matches assignment requirements.
□ Truly critique the course materials you read or watched. Discuss 3-4 specific things you learned from the materials; things that surprised you; things that might have upset you; things that made you look at disability in a new way, etc.
