1) The Rubric gives you 2 points per week for Participation. We are going to use those points to grade your Reading Summaries. Each week, when prompted by your teacher, you will share certain reading summaries as a response to a thread under the discussion section of the Content. More details will be discussed in class.
2) Write a Critical Thinking paper in which you combine your personal experience with highlights from the week’s reading. In particular, write a one-page essay (double spaced) in which you describe your experiences with your grandparents, and connect them to at least 3 key points and research results described in your reading on Grandchildren and Grandparents (2 articles). For example, you might have or have had grandparents who played a major role in raising you and/or your siblings. Describe in what way they fulfilled that role but also point to and comment on the research findings about the involvement of grandparents in the educating, disciplining and otherwise contribution to the raising of grandchildren. Remember to cite and reference your reading according to APA format.
