I’m working on a English question and need guidance to help me study.
Welcome to our first Discussion! Before we get started, here is the information about Discussions from the Syllabus:
Overview: In our discussion activities, you will respond to relevant questions or a prompt, engage in peer- review workshops (though they are graded differently), examine each other’s research project topics, and so on. The Primary post should be between 300-500 words, though sometimes it might be more. And the Peer Responses should be around 150-300 words.
Discussion Schedule: Every Discussion Forum will have its own primary posting and peer response instructions. There will typically be one Discussions each week (usually on Thursday or Friday). Each Discussion is worth 25 points, and the primary post must be completed before 11:59 PM PST on the day it is due of its assigned week. You may do one Discussion late, as long as it is still completed by 12 PM (Noon) the following day. The peer response portion of the assignment is normally due by two days later. For these reasons, it’s important to pay close attention to the Calendar and Weekly Module instructions.
Peer Response: In an online class, since you are not seeing your classmates face to face, the peer response makes the class more authentic and meaningful. You will be required to respond to at least two other students in the class; otherwise, you can only receive up to 15 pts. for each Discussion. The replies to your peers should include some detail and show that you have read their Discussions (around 150-250 words). I will be offering more advice on how to reply to your peers in the Discussions. Also, you will not be able to respond to your peers until you post your own thread.
For some advice on “how” you might reply to your peers, check out this site. (Links to an external site.)
Grading Rubric For Discussions:
• (18-20 pts.): You answer the question(s) completely and provide specific examples and details, and your response is at least 300 words. You also respond to at least two of your peers with a thoughtful and detailed reply
• (15-17 pts.): You answer the questions, but you could use more detail or examples in your response. You respond to at least two of your peers
• (12-14 pts.): The response clearly lacks an understanding of the questions and/or doesn’t include detail. You only respond to one peer or you didn’t include any specifics
• (Under 12 pts.): Doesn’t include much detail and fails to respond to peers
Response to “Let’s Get to the Root of Racial Injustice”
Before answering the following questions, make sure you have reviewed all of the rhetorical analysis resources in this module and watched Let’s Get to the Root of Racial Injustice
1.) Please give one example from the video for each of the persuasive appeals, and then explain how this example represents that specific appeal:
2.) What is the significance of Megan Ming Francis’ story about her dog’s behavioral issues?
3.) Ming Francis claims that there is a lack of attention being paid to the “root causes” of police violence in America. According to Ming Francis, why does the killing of unarmed Black Americans continue to happen?
The initial post is due by 11:59 pm on Friday, August 21st, and the Peer Replies are due by 11:59 pm on Sunday, Aug. 23rd.
