Responding

Checking Your Development Decisions

A hundred different developments might well be possible for your response, and so it should not be concluded that a rigid format for response is a reliable tool. It's not as simple as taking a formatted approach and simply plugging in your data, your evidence. Rather, the subject, the assignment, the audience, and the text itself should inform your decisions about the development options for your response. Given this caution, however, three of the most common methods of responding include:

  1. agree or disagreeing with text's points or presentation
  2. interpreting or analyzing the text's points or presentation
  3. critiqueing or reviewing the text's effectiveness
