Optional Assignment: Response 1 Redo (for students who did not complete Response 1 or who did poorly on Response 1). Don't waste my time or yours. If you choose to do this assignment, you MUST follow ALL instructions and response requirements. If I find myself writing the same comments that I wrote on your original response (or if I detect a lack of effort/sloppy mistakes), I will not continue grading it.

Response 1 Redo: Requires additional reading (different essay) and contains different questions. See Response page for complete  assignment details.

warning: this is (purposely) a tough read and a tough response. If you want a better grade, you'll really have to work for it.
