What impact did the articles have on your thinking about the Organizing Themes of Adulthood?
It is your chance to share your thoughts about the articles you chose to read. Here are some questions to get you thinking about what you might include in this paper. Thoughtful, elaborate responses to just one or two of these questions would make for a good reaction paper. What were
the most important things you learned from these articles? What impact did the articles have on your thinking about the Organizing Themes of Adulthood? How did the readings build on the knowledge you gained from class meetings and discussions? Did you think about how information in the articles relates to your own experiences or the experiences of people you know (family, friends, community members, etc.)? Did the
readings make you think about connections to concepts learned in other courses you have taken? Do not simply summarize the info from the articles. Focus on what was going through your mind as you were learning from these sources. Please write in the first person. I want to know
about your thoughts and your reactions. Please use the author name(s) when referring to a reading. For example, you could say, “The article by Neugarten …” or “Ryan & Deci made several points that stood out to me…” It is not necessary to use APA citation format, and please don’t include a reference page.
