This is a discussion forum for Week 3. You are to make at least three significant posts that help develop the discussion around these topics. You should also thread your posts to related information. You must read what others post and connect your thoughts to those already on the board. Working on different topics is strongly suggested, but not required. Staying with the discussion throughout the week is strongly encouraged.
- There are 4 topics and you may participate in discussion on any or all of the topics. While you should incorporate the content of readings into your posts, I discourage exclusive quoting or paraphrasing of the material. Instead, I ask you to present your own understanding of the information by sharing your knowledge and incorporating the information you learned by providing your own examples.
- From Sunday-Sunday, you should make at least three posts to the board. All posts should be 200-250 words and must be connected to the ongoing discussion (which is why you must read and keep up with the discussions) and should be connected literally by threading to the existing discussion. You do this by clicking “reply” at the bottom of the post you want to connect to NOT “reply” under the topic. Exception: If you are the first to post on a topic, you are starting the discussion by clicking reply under the topic.
Describe a real-life scenario in which the speaker’s visual aids might detract from the desired audience response. Be specific in explaining what went wrong with the visual aids and suggest alternative visual aids to remedy the situation. Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of the visual aids you might use in an upcoming speech.
Remember that your discussion response must include the following:
- A reflection on the concept we are discussing. Give us a summary of things you learned about this concept from your assigned chapter readings.
- A thorough example/discussion to support your reflection.
- A final statement that tells us what you take away from this week’s lesson.
- Properly formatted in-text citations and references.
- Strong grammar, spelling, and mechanics.
- In total your discussion should be at least 250 words.
