The Book of Joy” by Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu

: Reading Responses are some of the most important ways to engage with this course and each other. Through them you will offer, in writing, your thoughts, impressions, and opinions on a reading’s content, and any other observations that are meaningful to you. You will then draw upon these points and observations to enhance our discussions and any other relevant assignments you prepare for the course. Please keep in mind that each Reading Response forms part of your personal portfolio for this course.

This course’s required readings have been selected for particular purposes; however, it would be impossible to imagine all the various, diverse responses to them. With that in mind, you are not assigned specific questions to answer about each reading. Rather, you are encouraged to read, absorb, reflect, and respond to the reading in ways that are distinctly your own.

Please prepare a 750-word (which is approximately) 3-page typed response for the assigned reading

If you would like some general guidance on how to focus your Response, you may consider the following:

  • What topics or ideas in the reading resonated most strongly with you?
  • Do you agree or disagree with the ideas, perspectives, or information presentedby the author(s)? Why or why not?
  • What ideas or images does the reading elicit?
  • How might these ideas or images affect your learning, or support your personal,academic, or professional development?
  • please use the following headings to organize your descriptive narrative:
  • Introduction, Arrival, and Day 1
  • Days2and3
  • Days4and5
  1. Your response must be typed in a 12-point font, double-spaced, single-sided, and uploaded to our Moodle site as a pdf.Include your last and first names, student number, course name, and instructor at the top right-hand corner of the assignment’s first page. For example:Smith, Jan 1000000000 IDEA 1100 Dr. Daniel TonesTitle the assignment with the appropriate amount of detail, and centre the information immediately below your name. For example:Reading Response 1The Book of JoyCorrect spelling, grammar, syntax, and sentence structure are expected. To assist you with the best possible presentation of this assignment, please ensure that you proofread your work before submitting it.GradingEach Reading Response is worth 50 marks, and your response’s descriptive narrative will be graded in the following way:
    • Insight, analysis, and perspective 45 marks
    • spelling and grammar 5 marks

Hello there,

First,please keep in mind this is NOT a summary ,it is a reflection. I previously received a summary instead of a reflection which the professor reviewed with a failing grade as it was not what it was requsted. So please make sure you write a reflection.

Please read the full request which states exactly what and how you should write. The book (which i am also attaching here in case you don’t have it) is divded into multiple chapters. Due to that, your paper MUST have the following headings:

Introduction, Arrival, and Day 1



(papers which are not formatted this way will be rejected). In case you decide to outsource this task, I have to please you to double check the work you receive both in terms of content/ plagiarism and grammar errors. Sadly, i already rejected a version of this task this week due to not following the guideline and due to major grammar errors which i was not able to fix them myself.
