1. Type three direct quotes that you think reflect the primary source’s most remarkable thinking (ideas). Think about including quotes from the beginning, middle, and end. Advice: Because you are looking for remarkable ideas, pick quotes that express thinking that seems radical or new or uneasy in some way. These may be passages that you don’t fully understand.
2. Citing evidence from your primary essay, write an exploratory paragraph that represents and deepens your reader’s understanding of what you think is the author’s most remarkable claim (idea). What is your author reckoning with?
3. Write an exploratory paragraph, citing evidence from the author’s essay that examines an idea that you feel they don’t fully explore, explore with a limitation, leaves you unsatisfied in some way, or you want to borrow an idea to test out in a new context. Perhaps they leave a question unanswered. What will you reckon with via your primary author’s essay? Show your mind “weighing” the complex matter.
