Week 1 – Discussion

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above and the Grading Criteria link below for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

Response to Reading: Community and Responsibility [WLOs: 1, 2, 3] [CLOs: 1, 2]

In this discussion, we’ll continue the brainstorming process by discussing social and civic responsibility and how it applies to our unique communities. (See Section 2.1: The Writing Process: Planning and Prewriting Strategies.) Through this discussion, you will arrive at a topic for the research-based writing project in this class.

Prepare

Prior to participating in this discussion, read Chapter 1 in College Writing Handbook. Then, review the discussion grading criteria and read “My Adventures as a Social Poet”, written by Langston Hughes in 1947. Re-read this short essay as many times as necessary to comprehend the words and their meaning.

Reflect 

After reading “My Adventures as a Social Poet,” reflect upon its message. Think about community members’ responsibilities to one another. Consider the biggest issues facing your community today.

Why is it important for us to write about social issues? Why does your research and your writing matter?

Write 

Remind the class of your community. Explain how Hughes’ words relate to you. Include reasons why you have a responsibility to your community. Hughes felt compelled to write about racial inequality, social injustice, and African-American culture. What compels you?

As you discuss social responsibility, talk about specific issues that affect your community. Use this discussion to identify a broad topic for the research-based argument we will be writing in this class. If you are having trouble choosing a single topic, solicit advice from your classmates.

Remember to cite the source in APA style. (See Citing Within Your Paper (Links to an external site.).) For example: Hughes (1947) said that he was banned from certain places because his poetry tackled the subjects of “poverty, oppression, and segregation” (p. 207).While Hughes (1947) said that he was able to write about universal, romantic themes, he was more interested in writing about the issues that impacted the African-American community.End your post with a proper reference citation in APA style, too. (See Formatting Your Reference List (Links to an external site.)):Hughes, L. (1947). My adventures as a social poet. Phylon, 8(3), 205-212. doi:10.2307/272335Note: Double-spacing and hanging indent are not required in discussions due to formatting limitations in the discussion forum.

Respond to Peers 

You are expected to engage in this discussion on multiple days throughout the week, Tuesday – Monday. Log in frequently from your computer or through the mobile app to stay engaged.

As you respond to your classmates’ posts, discuss your unique perspectives on social responsibility and the issues your classmate has identified within their community. Address your classmates’ topic selection and work together to decide if the topic is too broad, too narrow, or just right. Help your classmates remain objective and unbiased in their approach to the topic. You are invited to share relevant audio, video, or images in your responses.

Be sure to participate in meaningful conversation with multiple classmates in this discussion, which will close at the end of the learning week. This discussion will be assessed on a 10-point scale and is worth 5% of your final grade.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
