Write a summary-response to “Rice for Thanksgiving”. For this writing assignment, your summary-response paper should display a clear understanding of the reading and should be divided into two parts.
The first part is a focused summary paragraph that briefly describes the author’s main idea, supporting ideas, and the author’s purpose. The second part is a detailed response paragraph that relates your own personal experience and opinions to the reading using your thesis statement, your supporting ideas, and your purpose.
Both paragraphs should have clear topic sentences, supporting sentences, and concluding sentences. A grading rubric will help you develop your paper.
