Please remember that over the course of the semester you need to complete a total of TWO of these essays. If you decide to complete the reaction essay below, please remember that you you can choose to skip the mastery quiz and the critical thinking discussion board. However, those grades will still be entered as zeros and then Canvas will drop them as the lowest grades as long as you have not missed other assignments. If you have missed other quizzes or critical thinking discussion boards, then I recommend still doing this lesson’s quiz and critical thinking discussion. Also, you DO still need to complete Launchpad.

Be sure to integrate this article into your essay and then be sure to cite the article using APA style both within the essay and at the end of your essay.
Write a 3-4 page reaction summary describing your reaction and opinion regarding the media you just listened to, read, and watched. You need to include an introduction with a thesis statement, supporting paragraphs, a conclusion, and an APA style reference page.
