Discussion – It’s Classified

A successful post meets rubric criteria (Content, Organization, Style/Language, and Sentence Structure/Grammar) and follows the discussion prompt. A successful reply to classmates answers their questions, provides additional insight into the topics they have discussed, generates additional questions, or engages in meaningful and substantive dialogue. Completing this forum should enable you to plan a compare/contrast, analogy, definition, or division/classification essay and write a compare/contrast, analogy, definition, or division/classification essay. (MO 1,2)

Instructions:

Have you ever clicked on a video, post, etc. with a title that was something along the lines of:

 

  • ’10 People You’ll Room With In      College’
  • ‘5 Cashiers You’ve Probably Met?’

These are classifying people from a particular walk of life into distinct categories. Although people are usually more complicated than these limited, defined categories, it seems to be part of our internet culture to make/watch these lists. There are even similarly themed quizzes to determine into which category you will be sorted. There are lists with this same method but using items rather than people. There are other lists starting with numbers, simply naming specific events/items which fit into one defined category or standard, along the lines of ‘Five of the Worst Waterslide Failures in History! #EpicFail.’ In the above examples, each of the ten college roommates/five cashiers would not be actual people but caricature/stereotype categories of people.

 

  • Create a title like these titles, a      number followed by the situation-specific category/categories.
  • Define the category/categories.
  • Be brief in your category      definitions.
  • You can be as serious or as silly as      you want with this.

Discussion – It’s a Slang Thang

(MO 1,2)

Instructions:

  • Name a current or modern slang      or colloquial word or phrase, particularly one you yourself are quite      familiar with or use often.
  • Alternatively, name a word or      phrase which is less well-known to the broader culture but quite familiar      to you and those within your family, social group, or work environment.
  • Compose a coherent paragraph      defining this term for your instructor and peers.
  • You may write this as a one to      three paragraph narrative explaining the origin and meaning of the term in      your own life if you wish.
