The practice of active reading, or writing as you read, is essential to your growth as a writer. We will tap into this skill with the use of the social reading application, Hypothesis, which not only will help you to organize your thoughts in preparation for class discussion but will also make visible the comments of your peers across each of our themed class texts.
