key concepts to focus on when considering the written assignments are integration and application. First, what are the main ideas of the reading? In your words, does this reading “connect” (amplify, contradict, substantiate, etc.) to other information about this topic? What do you see as the implications of the ideas covered in the reading? How can you use the information in this reading? Does the reading add to or alter your view of some aspect of urban planning? Explain? What do you see as the implications of the ideas covered in the reading? Whenever possible, draw from your own experience – (urban issues or projects that you are familiar with) – as a citizen or professional.
