Essay 1 - Reacting to a main idea from an essay

In this essay your task is to explain to the audience how you react to a main idea from one of the essays we read. Your classmates and I want to know what you think regarding the author's point. To that end, choose one author and after determining their main ideas, react to the one which most interests you. You'll be writing this essay for your classmates and me. Consider what you will need to do in the essay in order to let them easily understand your reaction. They'll need to know which author and main idea you're responding to, and they'll need to know not only how you react, but why you react that way. Remember, your audience probably won't share the specific experiences you've had that may explain your reaction, so you'll have to explain those to us.
