Use this optional (that is, non-graded) assignment to reflect on, provide evidence for, or otherwise argue on behalf of your participation grade at this point in the semester. What are you doing to participate in this class? What is the richest type of engagement? What are some conversations (in or out of class) that stand out in your memory? What was your favorite reading so far?
You can reply via text, recorded video or audio, a link, an upload -- whatever method you prefer.
I will use the argument you present here as well as my own impression of your participation to assign and/or update your participation grade.
