Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
For our first discussion, we will simply begin thinking about
the course theme and some of the topics and debates surrounding the course
Please answer the following in your initial discussion post.
Read the course theme
announcement. What is the course theme?
Which debates in the
course theme announcement interest you the most? List two of the debates from
the course theme announcement (you may list more than two).
For each debate, where
do you stand (What is your opinion?) and why?
Finally, choose from
those two debates: Which one do you think you are more likely to write about?
Why? In this response, please integrate and cite material from either your
textbook or from the Week One lesson to support your answer to the question,
Follow-Up Post Instructions
Respond to at least one classmate. Please provide rich, substantive,
constructive feedback that will help your fellow students develop their topics
by asking questions, by pointing to possible opposing viewpoints (which is helpful,
because, without opposing viewpoints, we do not have an argument), and by
providing professional and personal examples. A respectful, professional tone
Note: If you see that someone has already received feedback from
two peers, please choose to help a peer who has yet to obtain feedback. Check
back regularly and reply to those who have responded to you, including any
