Carefully follow the instructions below and make it your goal to earn maximum points as each assignment affects your average and total course grade. See previous students’ advice in the Getting Started module about closely following instructions, meeting deadlines, and editing your work.
Your instructor may have your class write on the topic below as a way of showing examples, or the instructor may provide another option.
The term controversial means “giving rise or likely to give rise to public disagreement.” Our views are often shaped by our background, the views of our family members, our religious beliefs, our reading and exposure to various types of media, and our experiences. However, not everyone has the same background, family members, religious beliefs, exposure to media, and experiences. Thus, the views of any two people about any given topic can vary greatly.
For this discussion, you have two tasks. The first is to identify an issue that you feel is controversial. It could be a world issue, or it could be an issue unique to your own family or situation.
Fill in the blank of the sentence listed below and use it as the title of your post.
What makes ____ controversial?
Your second task is to provide two or more examples of why this issue is controversial. Try to be as specific as possible in your examples. Don’t forget the skills that you learned in the narrative description module as it will be helpful here as well.
You might find the following organizational method helpful as you compose your post.
In the first paragraph, explain the issue and define any terms that your reader might not understand.
Use the second and third paragraphs to fully develop specific examples that help your readers to understand why this is a controversial issue.
Your minimum word count should be 350 words. Be sure to include your word count at the end of your post. Put the number of words you have over 350.
When you post, create a grabby, interesting subject line to draw the reader’s interest. Make this subject line original rather than just the topic. Think of it being the cover of a book. What could make someone in a bookstore stop and pick up your book based on its title only?
Respond to the posts of at least two of your classmates. These responses should go beyond “I agree,” “good job,” or “I disagree” and provide examples of why you feel the way you do about this issue. A good idea is to copy something your classmate expresses well and let him or her know why you think it is well-worded or insightful. Your responses to others should be a minimum of 75 words. Please include your word count at the end of your post. Example: 96/75
