As you do this part of the assignment, review the reading note instructions in Unit 1. The examples of citation style in this Assignments document will help you with your citations. Each reading note should be about 200 to 250 words in length, excluding the words in the citation. Do not write more, since the major goal of the reading note is to compress an author’s argument and analysis into their main components. This assignment is included to ensure that you have mastered the art of preparing reading notes and will be writing useful ones for yourself during the rest of the course—and, even, for the rest of your life!
