1.THINK: WHAT NEW LIT THEORY LENS DO YOU THINK SHOULD EXIST?
When preparing for this assignment, ask yourself the following
yourself the following to start planning your new theory:
Is there a theory we studied that you disagree with? What about it do you dislike or wish to change? Why?
Which theory would you want to expand further or alter to make it more inclusive of a certain group/culture/trend etc.?
What topics in the media angers/upsets/excites/confuses you the most?
While reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and/or an essay from The Anthropocene Reviewed, were you particularly drawn to certain events/characters/settings/symbols etc.?
What is your favourite genre of media? (i.e. novels, films, short stories/films, articles, TV shows, poetry, advertising, social media etc.)
CREATE: Now use your brainstorming and knowledge of literary theories to create a new school of literary criticism and apply it to either Henrietta Lacks OR The Anthropocene Reviewed, and one other text of your choice.
PRESENT: Design and create a multimedia presentation that incorporates words and images/graphics presenting your new theory.
What kind of multimedia presentation should I create? E.g. a slideshow of 10-15 slides, a video no longer than 2 minutes, an infographic, an annotated painting/graphic design, magazine article/issue
Your multimedia presentation must include the following:
a unique name for your new theory
a brief definition for your theory - types of questions to ask yourself when using your lens
a brief rationale statement for your theory (rationale is basically why you believe this theory needs to exist and how it was inspired)
an application of your theory to any piece of literature (novel, play, short story, fairy tale) or alternate media text (TV show, comic, advertisement, painting, film clip) **Note: You will have to summarize/introduce your choice of text (e.g. film clip, fairy tale, comic, painting etc.) before you apply your theory
an application of your theory to one passage approx. 250 words long from The Great Gatsby. (not the passage you chose from Lit Theory Assignment #1)
Complete the “Student Comments” part of the rubric (see below) evaluating your final piece
Check out some Level 4 examples to get an idea of what a new theory and its application could look like for student selected texts.
You will upload your final presentation to GC on the due date as shown on the class calendar. You will NOT have to present your final product to the class.
4.PLAN AND DESIGN CHAPTER
Hi, my thesis is on the locus of control and psychological well-being of adolescents. I have completed
adolescents. I have completed the Literature review. I have to plan a research design for the thesis. ABOUT THE THESIS:
Population- 13+ to 19 years adolescents
No of IV s- 2 that is, Gender is the First IV and Locus of Control ( LOC) is the second IV
Levels of IV- Gender has 2 levels ( male and female). LOC has two levels ( Internal Locus of Control and External Locus of Control). Both IV s are categorical variables.
List of DV s-
1. Self Esteem
4. Academic motivation
5. Exam Anxiety
6. Life Style
Each DV will be measured by using appropriate Statistical scales. All DVs will be taken as continuous variables. All the scales measure the quantitative aspect only.
DV MEASUREMENT: Each of the scales that will be used to measure DV contains several areas or dimensions or sub-categories. For example, the self-esteem scale contains 78 items divided into 6 categories like personal, social, emotional, academic, intellectual and moral.
THESIS AIM- To check the impact of IV s on each of these DV s in isolation and also investigate the interaction effects between gender and locus of external. I will be using the SPSS package for calculations.
Problem 1: Which is the most appropriate Statistical test or design that should be used here? I believe a 2x2 ANOVA will be best suited here.
Problem 2: If I am measuring the impact of IV s on each DV in isolation, should I use several Two Way AONVA tables or a single MANCOVA table?
Problem 3: Each of the DV is measured using scales containing several dimensions. Are such dimensions of the scales need to be treated as the levels of the dependent variables? In other words, do the levels of DV are decided as per the dimensions of the scale that was used to measure the DV? If this is so, then even if I am measuring the DV s in isolation; each DV will have multiple levels, which in turn will change my design from Two Way ANOVA to perhaps MANCOVA? What is the right approach here?
Note: I have not intentionally divided DV into any levels.
Kindly help me to arrive at a statistically significant research design! If possible, kindly briefly explain the type of the design as well as the rational or suitability of the sign for my research problem.
5.I am looking for someone who is used to water resources engineering/fluid dynamics. I have been tasked to design the
ed to design the water, wastewater, and stormwater systems for an addition to a building at our university. I have the maps of the existing systems and I am planning to use these existing systems as much as possible to avoid extra work. I have calculated a water demand and fire flow for the building. I believe I have to use mannings equation for the water pipes to determine flow, etc. I am not sure how to deal with the wastewater. I have to use the rational method for stormwater. I have attached a document which explains what I need to do overall. I need help on this ASAP as I have to present it Tuesday evening.
