Read the article, then, write a response to the author. You can agree or disagree with him/her, but you will need to state your reasons/sub-claims why and develop/explain those well. You do not need to do extra research for this assignment. Just imagine you are having a conversation with your author (but a polite, formal one). These authors are all talking to each other within this academic conversation. Your job here is to join the conversation. Your response should at least 350-500 words long.
