Question;Please post any questions that you have about the course here. If you want to discuss a question privately, email me directly.Unit 2.1 DB: Two ReadingsPlease respond to both ?Just Walk on By? (pages 210-212) and ?Iron Bonding.? You should write one initial post per reading and then, after Wednesday, respond to at least two other comments from your classmates. Let the discussion unfold naturally and respond with verve.?Just Walk on By?In response to not only his own experience, but the experience of a black journalist as well, Brett Staples states that ?Such episodes are not uncommon. Black men trade tales like this all the time.? Do you think this is still the case in 2013? What do you believe accounts for this behavior??Iron Bonding?Alan Buczynski states that, ?The notion prevails that men's emotional communication skills are less advanced than that of chimpanzees, that we can no more communicate with one another than can earthworms.? To what extent (if any) do you think this is true? Provide a specific example. Do you believe the author equally falls into the ?earthworm? category? Why or why not?Unit 2.2 DB: Quotes And In-text CitationsAPA formatting requires the use of in-text citations to avoid plagiarizing and to give credit to the author of that source. The basic in-text citation for a summary or paraphrase is formatted at the end of a sentence where you use information from an outside source with the author's last name and year the piece was published like this: (Smith, 2002). When using a direct quote, you must use the author's last name, year the piece was published and page number or paragraph number like this: (Smith, 2002, p. 3). Read over pages 628-630 in your text on how to format an in-text citation. Then, write one paragraph on how you were stereotyped or you witnessed another person being stereotyped, and include one direct quotation from "Just Walk on By" (pages 210-212) to support your ideas. Remember to add an in-text citation at the end of the sentence where you use summary, paraphrase, or quotation. Look over the APA formatting tab to help create your in-text citation.Unit 3.1 DB: Definition EssaysPlease respond to both ?Why I Want a Wife? (pages 312-313) and ?The Handicap of Definition?

Let?s bring the Discussion Board to life!?Why I Want a Wife?Judy Brady makes certain assumptions about wives. Do you feel that the same assumptions can be made about husbands? If so, why aren?t they?

Which sister do you feel is more justified in her feelings towards her country of residence? Explain your answer.Unit 4.2 DB: Google vs. Scholarly SourcesIn academic writing, you will be required to support your ideas with credible, focused sources. Google is a go-to for answering many questions, but might not be the best way to research for an academic essay. Research the topic of Student Loans on Google, and also using the Directory of Open Access Journals. You can use the advanced search to narrow your search on DOAJ. Once you research student loans on both Google and DOAJ, write one paragraph of your findings comparing and contrasting the two different ways to research. Compare and contrast the number of results and the amount of time it took to find a credible source. Which site had more credible sources? What made these sources credible?Unit 5.1: Students Who Push BurgersSome commentators now see higher education as a place where "consumers" (part or full-time students) "purchase" education on much the same basis as shoppers use to purchase anything--price, convenience, amenities. Others argue that students who take this approach may end up with degrees but will miss out on what the college experience has to offer and enter the workforce at a disadvantage compared to their more studious colleagues. After reading " Students Who Push Burgers", what is your stance on this topic? Be sure to support your argument and refer to the reading.Unit 6.1 BD: Beauty?and the BeastIn her essay ?Beauty?and the Beast of Advertising?, Jean Kilbourne states that ?women are shown almost exclusively as housewives or sex objects.?
