Reading Response Framework
A successful Reading Response will tackle one or two issues in depth.
1. Introductory Paragraph
Begin with the basic information about the book you read: the title, author, publication information (year published). The opening paragraph is also your opportunity to build interest by mentioning facts or circumstances about the author. Do your research, highlight the credential or noteworthy of the author. Cite your source.
2. What’s the book about?
In the body of the report—discuss these three things from the book. This is your chance to show you’ve read and understood the text.
In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi shares his own experience with racist thinking. How does his honesty help give us space to acknowledge and name our own racist behaviors and attitudes?
Kendi writes, “The only way to undo racism is to constantly identify it and describe it—and then dismantle it.” Why does he believe we need to call out racism when we see it, even if it can be uncomfortable to identify?
The book’s central message is that the opposite of “racist” isn’t “not racist.” The true opposite of “racist” is antiracist. “The good news,” Kendi writes, “is that racist and antiracist are not fixed identities. We can be racist one minute and an antiracist the next.” What does it mean to have to constantly reaffirm your identity as an antiracist? Is there any benefit to the fact that you can’t just decide you are “not racist” or an antiracist and be done with it?
(Use many supporting details from the book and cite the pages).
3. Personal Evaluation and Conclusion
You’ll like writing this section because it is here that you’ll be able to offer your own view. What is the first step you, personally, will take in striving to be an antiracist? How will you check yourself and hold yourself accountable if you notice you, or someone else, is being racist?
