Critically reflect on ONE of the prompts below in response to Episode 4, “Neon Moss,” of Jad Abumrad’s Dolly Parton’s America podcast series. Aim for 500 words. **Successful critical reflections prioritize critical analysis, focusing on “why” and “how” questions (think about “craft”!), and going beyond summary and description of the text.
1. Critically analyze the “angle” and “scope” of the article. What is Jad Abumrad trying to communicate to the reader, and how effective is he in doing this? Why does the author cover the span of time that he does? How does it serve the “angle”? Use evidence from the text to support your reflection.
2. Think about tone and voice within the piece. How would you describe the tone? How would you describe the voice? How does the tone and voice reflect and/or serve the “angle” of the piece? Why does the author decide to take this approach? Use evidence from the text (i.e. podcast) to support your reflection.
3. Consider the characters present and their roles within the narrative. Who is featured within the story and why? How does the author develop character, and why does he develop the characters in this way? How do they lend to the “angle” of the story? Use evidence from the text to support your reflection
