dq 1

Exploring the Course Themes (graded)

The four course themes of education, technology, family, and health and wellness are topics that touch each of our lives in some way. In this discussion, practice exploring the themes as a researcher would: by creating problem statements.

How do you do this? Ask and then answer the question using a sub-topic (see below). Here’s an example. “For whom is [school bullying] a problem?“ In your post, provide the question and then the answer to the question. For example, “School bullying is a problem for victims of bullying because. . . .” Complete the statement based on your experience and knowledge.

Education Technology Family Health and Wellness
School Bullies Multitasking and Technology Sexualization of Girls College Students and Weight Issues
No Child Left Behind Act/Race to the Top Technology and Social Isolation Gender Discrimination Childhood Obesity
Grade inflation Perils of Social Networking Unequal Rights in Marriage, Children Fad Diets
College Students and Underage Drinking Online Dating/ Online Predators/Sex Offenders Children of Divorce Junk Food
Student Debt Illegal Downloading of Protected Content Domestic Violence Sedentary Lifestyles
College Students, Cheating and Plagiarism Internet Censorship/ Classified Information Leaks Cyberbullying Teenage Pregnancy
College Dropout Rates Identity Theft Life-Work (Im)balance/ Flexible Work Schedules Concussions in Athletes
High School Dropouts Texting and Driving Insurance Premiums for Smokers and Obese Employees

dq 2

Topic Selection (graded)

To prepare for your topic selection and the research process, conduct an Internet search to find at least two articles that have been posted in the last year on one of the “themes” topics (i.e., bullying). The goal is to find articles that take clear positions on the topic.Share what you find and include the URL links to the articles. After you’ve posted, assess a classmate’s links, indicating whether you’d like to read or hear more about the topic and why.

dq 1

Argumentative Strategies (graded)

In research writing, what exactly do we mean by argument? Do we mean taking an extreme position and standing our ground, whether or not the facts support our position? Or do we mean instead convincing our audience by taking a reasonable stance on an issue and supporting our position with appropriate evidence? Define and explain the difference using examples.

dq 2

Internet Reliability (graded)

How reliable is the Internet as a source of information for your research? What are the ways you can validate information that you find on the Internet? Why is this necessary? Use examples from the Information Literacy module you reviewed this week.

dq 1

Presenting Ideas (graded)

Persuasive presenters have several traits in common. Browse through TED talks http://www.ted.com/talks or American Rhetoric Website at http://www.americanrhetoric.com/ to find notable speakers who demonstrate strong communication traits. Compare and contrast the ways these speakers meaningfully communicate ideas to their audiences. Include the URL link of the speaker you choose to write about. In a short paragraph, respond to a classmate’s post, indicating whether you agree or disagree with his or her choice, and why.

dq 2

Preparing the Research Proposal (graded)

How important is it to be personally invested in an idea? Can you sell an idea that you have no stake in? Why or why not? Using one of the resources from the Course Readings, provide an example of an author who is communicating in a way that tells a reader that the author is credible and is a trustworthy source.

Annotated Bibliography Entries (graded)

In your textbook (pp. 325–326), you’ll find a model of an annotated bibliography. Review the model, focusing on the components of the entry: (1) the reference citation, (2) the summary, and (3) the assessment. Then draft one reference entry and two paragraphs from one of your sources. We’ll use the rest of the week to peer review the entries to prepare you for this week’s assignment.

dq 2

Argumentative Strategies (graded)

In presenting an argument, should a writer strive to be the final authority or a reasonable voice on an issue? Review Chapter 22 to understand the difference. Then, using your topic and one or more of your sources, define and provide an example of an arguable claim as opposed to a personal judgment

DeVry ENGL 147 Week 5 Discussion 1 & 2 Latest 

dq 1

Analyzing a Sample Argument (graded)

In the textbook, review the student essay on p. 199, “Allowing Guns on Campus Will Prevent Shootings, Rape.” What strengths and weaknesses do you find in Ohman’s essay? Does Ohman’s essay inflame or inform? Finally, does Ohman increase your literacy about violence or merely arouse your emotions?

dq 2

Organizational Patterns in Argument (graded)

Let’s look at samples of research-based writing: “Nervous Nellies” on p. 328; “From Degrading to De-Grading” on p. 254; and “How Many Zombies Do You Know?” on p. 290.

Review each selection and include in your post responses to these questions. What do you notice about how each is organized and presented? What kinds of appeals to the audience does each author use? How are sources used in text?

Reading Strategy Note: Unlike summary and paraphrase, which require close reading, for this discussion use the reading strategy of skimming. Carefully read the introductory paragraph, but then move quickly, reading only the topic sentence of each paragraph. The goal is to compare and contrast the differences in the presentation of the information in the document. Skim and review until you have an impression you can share in the discussion.

dq 1

Rebuttals and Refutations (graded)

Anticipating readers’ objections is one way to determine what other sections to include and support in your paper. Practice writing a rebuttal or a refutation by taking your thesis and considering the point of view of someone who believes differently or even the opposite of the argument you are making. To do this, review Chapter 10, pp. 449–452 and post a paragraph that summarizes an oppositional point of view to your thesis and then refutes it. As peers, reply to one another explaining whether or not your classmates are presenting the opposition objectively and whether the refutation is logical. Give one another ideas or suggestions for points that may be left out or might need to be further developed. The paragraph you draft here can be used in a section of your Second Draft this week.

dq 2

Designing Your Course Project (graded)

While APA-style citation and format is required, you do have the flexibility in the design of your Course Project to include a visual element. Review Chapter 17, pp. 382–387. How does the use of visual elements enhance or detract from the presentation of research? Will you add graphs, charts, or images to your draft? Why or why not?

dq 1

APA Workshop (graded)

Each academic area of study has a particular style for documenting the ideas of other scholars. The standards of formatting document you’ve been using is from the American Psychological Association (APA). This is the preferred style in the social sciences.As you’ve noticed, there is a strong emphasis on the publication date. Why do you think there is such an emphasis on the date? As you work on revising your Course Project, what questions do you have about how to incorporate standard APA format and documentation guidelines into your essay? Are there any sources you are having a hard time documenting? Any questions about your reference entries?

  7. 7.Given a sample of writing requiring revision, refine and develop ideas in order to convey new knowledge that reflects original thought.

GUIDELINES

Introduction

Through the Course Project, students will engage in writing about a real-world topic that is aimed at a specified reader in the form of an argument.

Skillful argument-based writing will serve you well, in many ways, beyond this class. Both in other classes and on the job, the research paper you learn in this class will take on new forms, such as analytical reports, proposals, reports, and white papers.Writers who achieve success through these important kinds of documents know how to present an argument and support it logically and persuasively using relevant, attributed source material.

The Course Project will address a topic within one of four course themes: education, technology, family, or health and wellness. Each topic encompasses the potential for controversy, which means there is more than one valid way of looking at the issue and presenting the issue to an audience. The paper will introduce the topic, provide background information, present a main argument with evidence, and conclude in a way that clearly leads a reader to take desired or recommended action.

Assignment

After thoroughly reading and researching a topic, complete the weekly assignments addressing a topic from one of the course themes, leading to two drafts that are revised in a final 8- to 10-page research project.

The purpose of the assignment is to present an argument and support it persuasively with relevant, properly attributed source material. The primary audience for the project will be determined in prewriting tasks. The secondary audience is an academic audience that includes your professor and fellow classmates.

Course assignments will help you develop your interest in a theme and topic, engage in discussion with your professor and classmates, and then learn to apply search strategies to retrieve quality sources.

By the end of the course, you will submit a Course Project that meets the requirements for scope and which includes the following content areas.

  1. 1.Introduction
  2. 1.Attention-getting hook
  3. 2.Topic, purpose, and thesis
  4. 3.Background
  5. 4.Relevance to reader
  6. 2.Body
    Logically presented, point-by-point argument with evidence (the number of sections may differ by paper, but you should plan to have at least three)
  7. 1.Section 1 (2–5 paragraphs)
  8. 2.Section 2 (2–5 paragraphs)
  9. 3.Section 3 (2–5 paragraphs)
  10. 4.Section 4 (2–5 paragraphs)
  11. 5.Section 5 (2–5 paragraphs)
  12. 3.Conclusion
