Subtitle about what this reaction paper is about, if not apparent from Title
Since you may be doing multiple reaction papers by the end of your time in SGC, you'll

certain that you are presenting yourself as an educated individual.
We would really like to see some original synthesis on your part. We're not talking about some
deep philosophical tracts or profound poetry or the like (although if you are so inspired, we're
not going to stop you!) What we want to see is that you are able to make connections between
your reading or experience and your other classwork and readings (with SGC colloquia and
other classes, too.) Also, you can use this opportunity to show that you are a critical

particularly effective (or, alternatively, which you think might be better presented in
some other way), please feel free to write about that.
So, to review, here are the requirements:
