For this summary and response, I’d like you to focus on Luna’s (2017) “We Are So Forked (Links to an external site.).” Recall what the authors write in TSIS about summaries: that you as a writer must find a balance between fairly representing an author’s point of view, while also tailoring the summary to your specific response. Also, remember that there are a variety of ways to respond: you can disagree or agree or both, you could explore a particular critique or question you had as you read, or you could add something to Luna’s argument – just about any response is appropriate as long as it respectfully adds something to the ‘conversation’ Luna’s text is part of.
