The discussion exercises require you to explore multimedia content, choose a source, and relate it to the one of the weekly texts we read (ie. one of the short stories). This exercise is designed to be engaging, fun, and interactive. J Discussion Exercises must be posted on the specified due date before your participation responses. Late posts will not be accepted. Once you submit your discussion exercise, you will be able to view and to respond to other students’ posts.

1. Discussion Exercise

Due on each specified date that is listed in the calendar. Late posts will earn the grade of “0.” Explore various online sources pertaining to a weekly text (ie. one of the short stories that we read) or its author. Sources may include but are not limited to: 1. General multimedia-websites, short articles, podcasts, weblogs, videos; 2. Visuals-photos, artwork, graphs, charts 3. Social media-Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. Do NOT use Wikipedia. J

When you choose your source, complete the following in your exercise post:

1. Attach the source or provide a link. You attach sources by clicking on the paperclip. If you choose to provide a link, double-check and make sure the link works so all of us can see it. J

2. In at least 100 words, address the following:

1. Briefly describe why you chose the source.

2. Explain how it’s relevant, interesting, confusing, humorous, etc. to the  weekly text (ie. short story) or to the author. Include in-text citations.
