Choose two of the following TED talks (maximum of 2!). For each talk, write a one page (double spaced) reflection on the talk. No need to summarize the content — I have already seen the videos. No need to follow normal essay rules (e.g., no intro paragraph, no heading). I am interested in your critical analysis of the ideas presented. Assignments will not be graded traditionally. They will receive a “check” or a “check plus,” based on quality of thoughtful analysis. A check is worth additional 2 percentage points on your final quiz average and a check plus is worth 4 points on your final quiz average.
