Your second paper assignment is to write a response paper about Delbanco’s book: College: What It Was, Is, and Should Be. You should focus on answering the following question:
What are the three most interesting, surprising, or thought-provoking insights about college that I gained from reading Delbanco’s book? Explain why each insight was meaningful to you.
You should aim to write approximately 1 to 1 ½ pages on each insight.
Each of your insights should be accompanied by one or two quotes from Delbanco’s book. It is preferable to use short quotes that provide a starting point for sparking your own ideas and insights. Since this is a response paper, it is important to focus on your response to Delbanco’s book. You should not simply summarize what Delbanco says in his chapters…I can read that for myself!
