Case Study 2: Health Discussion – Week 3COLLAPSE
Respond to the Discussion Spark by Day 2. Your response marks your entrance into this week’s Discussion area. While you are not required to respond to your colleagues’ Discussion Spark responses, you are encouraged to read them.
Finding Your Voice
As you know, you will be discussing your case study with classmates on dedicated Discussion threads. However, if you are alone in your case study choice, you can post to other threads as well, but please be sure to post your main response under your case study thread. No doubt there will be a wide range of focus areas and different opinions reflected in discussion, and that is great. You learn more when you consider different opinions than when everyone is in full agreement. The challenge, beginning this week, is to distill (from a wide-ranging discussion) those points that are most useful to your own thesis and the persuasive essay you are about to write. Take what is of value to you, leave the rest behind, and try to give as much to your colleagues as you draw from them.
By Day 4
Respond to the Discussion post that is designated for your case study selection.
Be sure to provide attribution, using APA formatting, for any outside sources used. The required reading should be completed prior to this Discussion post and should be referenced in the Discussion post, using APA formatting.
Note: This week, be sure to participate in the Discussion thread based on the case study you selected. You may also read and respond to discussions about other case studies but your main post due on Day 4 should be in the thread related to your chosen case study.
Case Study 1 (Ethics): What ethical dilemmas are presented in “The Lottery”? Among the many ethical issues raised within the story, which do you find to still be critical in this day and age? Out of these issues, which do you consider to be the most pressing issue still in existence today, and how should society go about addressing it? Write a 250-word persuasive paragraph addressing this pressing issue and how it should be addressed. Include specific textual examples from “The Lottery” within your paragraph.
Case Study 2 (Health): Even though “The Yellow Wallpaper” was written over a century ago, many of the health issues raised in the story still exist today. Among the many health issues raised within the story, which do you find to still be critical at this time? Out of these, which do you consider to be the most pressing issue, and how should society go about addressing it? Write a 250-word persuasive paragraph addressing this pressing issue and how it should be addressed. Include specific textual examples from “The Yellow Wallpaper” within your paragraph.
Case Study 3 (Education): The documentary, Waiting for ‘Superman’, discusses the characteristics of failing schools. These characteristics are discussed in this week’s Case Study 3 (Education) resources. What are some of these characteristics? Out of these characteristics, which do you consider the most important, and how might this best be fixed? Write a 250-word persuasive paragraph addressing this failing characteristic and how it can best be fixed. Include specific examples from this week’s Case Study 3 (Education) Resources within your paragraph.
By Day 6
Respond to the main post of at least one colleague. Your response should be a minimum of 100 words and should be significant and substantial. What does this mean, you may ask? You want a response that gets your classmates thinking and, hopefully, responding to you as well. You may consider asking a question. You may point out a different aspect of conversation, one that your classmate did not address. You may disagree gently and respond with an alternative idea of your own, keeping in mind that mutually respectful discourse is expected. Everyone does not all have to agree, but everyone does have to disagree respectfully.
Additionally, you are encouraged to interact with your Instructor and colleagues by participating actively and often in discussion beyond what is minimally required through Day 7.
