Find a current (within the last year) news item or media piece that addresses one of the themes of the class and is relevant to readings/discussions. Acceptable sources are news articles/stories, editorials, video clips, song lyrics, interviews, movies, magazine articles, and/or organizational activities. If you find something that does not fall under one of the categories listed above but you think is noteworthy, just run it by me first. I will let you know if you can use it. I don’t want you to rule out something that might be a valuable contribution to the discussion because the source is not listed. Once you have selected your piece: ?

  1. Describe the piece and include a citation and link to the piece (if possible). Briefly summarize the content and then explain how it is relevant or related to specific ideas/content from the course.
  2. Come up w/ 1 discussion question for the class to respond to via the discussion board.
  3. Each of you will be required to post thoughtful comments to at least two of your classmates’ questions. (not on the same discussion thread)
