Summary and response essay for Blindspot: Hidden Biases of Good People
Book by Anthony Greenwald and Mahzarin Banaji
The summary part of your essay should be brief (one paragraph), and the bulk of your essay will be response. When you write a formal response to a text, you must go beyond merely stating your opinion. You must examine, explain and defend your reaction to the text. There is no right or wrong answer to a reader response, but it is important that you demonstrate an understanding of the text and clearly explain and support your reactions to it.
You could approach your response in a number of ways:
Agreement/disagreement with the ideas in the book
Reaction to how the ideas in the book relate to your own experience
Reaction to how ideas in the book relate to other things you have read
Reaction to how ideas in the book relate to current events in the news
Evaluation of the quality of the book
Some combination of more than one of the above
Purpose of the Assignment
To practice critically reading and analyzing a book-length text
To practice writing a well-organized summary and response of a text, one of the most common forms of academic writing, and a form of writing you will continue to use.
To practice effectively using evidence from a text to support claims and analysis
Consider your audience to be people who have not read Blindspot but might be interested in it, so it’s important to clearly summarize the text and orient them throughout the essay.
Regardless of your approach, in your essay you must:
have a specific thesis statement related to Blindspot. The thesis must contain a central claim that needs to be supported with evidence.
convincingly support your thesis with your own analysis and evidence from the text (quotations and specific examples). Do NOT use quotations to simply summarize what the book is about. Instead, use them to illustrate and support the points you are making in your essay. Optional: Quote or paraphrase from secondary sources if you need additional evidence to support any claims in your essay.
effectively integrate at least four quotations from Blindspot into your prose.
have a well-organized and logical paragraph structure with an effective introduction, conclusion, and transitions connecting ideas. At least five paragraphs.
document any quotations or paraphrases in MLA style, both within the text of your essay and on a Works Cited page.
use the following format: at least 750 words, original title, MLA style.
make a minimum of grammatical errors and typos.
