Question description

Reading Reflection

In two to four double-spaced pages (excluding title and reference page), analyze the works listed here:  Alice Walker, The Welcome Table and complete the following:

  • Explain why the literary work captured your interest, using terms and concepts from the text to support your explanation. The key terms are found at the end of Chapter 2.
  • Apply two to three of the key terms from Chapter 2 to your reflection. Review the Reader’s Response matrix (Figure 2.1) to help you frame your response.
Your paper should be organized around a thesis statement about the selected literary work and the approach you are using to analyze the work. All sources must be properly cited.  The paper must include a separate title and reference page, and be formatted to APA (6th edition) style. 

The paper must be two to four pages in length (excluding the title and reference page), and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library) other than the textbook to support your claims and subclaims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.
