a textbook chapter.
â€¢ Comment on a particular part of the text that you find especially interesting and explain what you
find interesting about these ideas.
â€¢ Ask a question related to a particular part of the text that you want your peers to respond to, perhaps
because you think this is an interesting part and youâ€™re interested in otherâ€™s thoughts or because you
want some clarification.
â€¢ Make a connection between the text and recurring themes we are addressing in the course, especially
if the text changes or gives you new insights into these themes.

experiences might be cultural, personal, academic, professional, or something else.

additional perspective or explain more about their ideas.
