Question

Question;module 1 case studyHere you will be writing a response to ?An Occurrence at Owl Creek? by Ambrose Bierce. This activity is designed to help you review narration and description. When reading note Bierce?s ability to both tell a story and describe its circumstances.Read ?An Occurrence at Owl Creek? by Ambrose Bierce hereTime is important in this story. Not the time in history, calendar time, watch time, or the time of day, but rather the way that people perceive time. We all know how some things can seem to last forever, like a bad cold, while other things seem to be over in a few minutes, like a great party.In your essay, please concentrate on the role of perceived time.Assignment ExpectationsAfter reading the essay, please write a two page essay that addresses how perceived time functions in the story.Your essay should mention the metaphors and themes which show us what Bierce was trying to say about time.Your essay should contain three quotes to illustrate how time works in the short story.Submit by the end of this module.module 1 SLPRead ?To Build a Fire? by Jack London hereFor this assignment you will write three-four pages that combines your skills in both narration and description. The readings from both the Case Assignment and the Session Long Project offer good examples of stories that utilize both good description and narration strategies. Write about a meaningful place or a place that has significance to you. Maybe there were people there that you remember, or your family was there. What was special about the place? What do you remember about the place? What can you remember hearing, smelling, seeing? Why was this particular place memorable or special to you?Assignment ExpectationsWrite three-four pages about a meaningful placeWrite well (consider your optional reading material to help you)Illustrate good descriptive and narrative strategiesSubmit your work by the end of this modulemodule 2 case studyWelcome to Case 2: In this assignment, you will write about your use of literacy skills and communications technologies in your everyday life. The focus is on your present use -- do NOT write about your PAST use of these skills and technologies, as that's the topic for the next assignment, SLP 2.Don't forget that communication technology spans a wide spectrum, from wooden pencils to Skype.Assignment:Write four or five pages describing your literacy practices today. How much do you read and write each day? What kinds of communication technologies are you using in your daily life? How frequently, and how much, do you use each of them?Assignment ExpectationsWrite four to five page essay that discusses your literacy practices and uses of communications technologies today (right now).Use the narrative strategies that you have already learned.Research your own literacy practices, in other words, look at your own behavior carefully, then report it accurately.Submit your work by the end of this module.module 2 SLPThe Session-Long Project builds from your Case assignment. Here you want to extend and expand your Case assignment by including more history of your literacy practices and prior uses to communication technologies. Read Dennis Baron?s piece: ?From Pencils to Pixels.? Pay attention to how he describes the history of the pencil and telephone. Consider how technologies you have learned to use were once thought to be cumbersome or would never work and/or how they were received by the general public at their first inception. Think carefully about how you came to learn to read and write and how you came to use communication technology over the years. This essay should be different from the Case assignment in the sense that it should focus more on your history rather than on what communication technologies or literacy practices you are using today. This essay should focus on how those practices were shaped by your family, experiences, education, peers, etc. What was the culture in your home concerning literacy, reading, writing, and technology use? At some schools, students are making videos or creating visual presentations to represent their technological literacy narratives. Be sure to view the optional reading material (there are two videos to watch). Here you will write a four-five page technological literacy narrative.Assignment:Read Baron?s ?From Pencils to Pixels.?Write a four-five page technological literacy narrativeAssignment Expectations:Read ?From Pencils to Pixels.?Write four-five page technological literacy narrative that discusses both how you have come to learn to read and writeConsider both your present (drawing from your Case assignment) and past experiences with writing, literacy, and communication technologiesCite any outside sources you decide to useSubmit your work by the end of this module.module 3 case studyFor this case assignment, read both Prezi vs. Powerpoint articles by Daivd Wicks and Phil Bird.

The idea is for you to practice finding claims or arguments that the author makes. To prepare you to make your own claims it is imperative to experience reading how authors make their claims. Likewise, you want to use third person throughout the response. In other words, you want to serve as a reporter of the information in the article. Pretend you are working for a news station and just reporting what the article says. Consider reviewing paraphrasing and summarizing in the reading material. When writing research, you will want to show that you are unbiased in your explanations of sources. Using third person can increase your ethos (ethical credibility) and show audiences that you have done your homework (your research) on the topic. To practice citing in APA style, please provide a reference list that contains the article you have read (cite parenthetically in the text and include the article on a reference list using APA format). There will be only one ?source? on your reference list because we have not asked you to do further research for this assignment.Assignment ExpectationsRead the essay thoroughlyWrite two-three pages that identifies and expresses the claims made by the authorUse the additional readings to learn about summarizing and paraphrasingUse third person writing throughoutCite the article in a reference list (you will only have one article on your reference list)Submit ymodule 4 SLPIdentify the ClaimRead: ?99.9% of Proper Grammar is Obsolete? by David Wertheimer (from Digital Web Magazine) hereThe case assignment asks you to read and identify claims made by the author.

Controversial topics are often what people look for to write about, but using local issues, issues you are familiar with, or issues less controversial (whether to use a real Christmas tree or a fake one, for example) work just as well. Sometimes using less controversial topics are easier to work with than highly charged topics, but in any case, choose a topic you already know something about. The focus here will be on how well you can present your argument in writing.When writing your research paper, use the annotated bibliography that you developed as part of the Case Assignment. You should have the research completed as a result of that assignment. Your sources should already be in APA format. As you write your research paper use the research you?ve already done to make the research paper a bit easier for you. Once you write the research paper, you will include the works cited or list of references in APA format. You will also cite those sources parenthetically in your research paper.
