2.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.
3.sample questions. I've attached. 2 hours 6 questions. it's a timed assignment so once we agree ill send the questions
end the questions over
You have 2 hours to take this open-notes, open-book, open-computer, closed communication quiz. You must show your calculations to receive any credit for numerical answers. You may use an Excel sheet for your calculations (or type it directly into eCourses), but the answers to the questions MUST be typed into eCourses and clearly labeled. (You can attach your Excel sheet to a question on the quiz, or you can send it in an eCourses mail message immediately after you complete the quiz.)
4.This first part of the Individual Research Project is an Outline and Annotated Bibliography. The
Outline should provide a very brief
tline should provide a very brief overview of what you think you will do in the Policy Brief.
The Annotated Bibliography requires you to summarize at least three peer-reviewed scholarly
sources you will cite in the Policy Brief.
This assignment is designed to get you thinking about your topic in a way that clearly anticipates
the writing you will do for the Policy Brief. We want you to brainstorm and do a bit of research
well in advance of the deadline for the Policy Brief and, most importantly, we want you to put
your ideas down on paper so that we can give you feedback before writing the actual Policy
Brief. In other words, we are asking you to submit an Outline and Annotated Bibliography so
that we can help you write the best Policy Brief possible.
Your Outline should be divided into the following five sections and should be written in
I. Audience: Identify the audience you are addressing and consider what that audience
is interested in. Who are you talking to in the Policy Brief and what does this suggest
about the approach you should take? (75-100 words).
II. Problem: State how you know the issue exists. What is the proof that students need
to improve this skill? (125-150 words).
III. Importance of Problem: Indicate why this problem matters. What are the
consequences of the problem not being addressed? Why do students need to improve
this skill? (100 words)
IV. Solution: Identify your preferred solution. What solution will work in your context
and why? (75-100 words)
V. Alternative Solution: Identify at least one other possible solution. What other
solutions did you consider? (75-100 words)
The total length of the Outline should be between 450 and 550 words.
When you submit your Outline, you must also include an Annotated Bibliography. An Annotated
Bibliography is an alphabetical list of research sources that provides bibliographical data (the
title, author, date, publisher, etc.) and a short summary or annotation of the source.
Your Annotated Bibliography should contain a minimum of three scholarly or peer-reviewed
sources, each with an accompanying annotation that is between 150 and 250 words long. The
annotations must summarize the research question or thesis, research methodology, results, and
conclusion. Annotations must include summaries and paraphrased information, NOT quotations.
A good annotation will include two separate paragraphs: 1) a paragraph summarizing the
research question or thesis, research methodology, results and conclusion; and 2) a paragraph
commenting on why this source is relevant for your research.
5.ssay 1: Person I Admire
This essay assignment is the culmination of all your previous work in this module. You have
in this module. You have already engaged in the beginnings of the writing process of this essay. You have:
Brainstormed ideas (see Chapter 11 in SMG) about the essay in the Discussion Board.
Condensed your ideas down into manageable points around a working thesis.
Displayed knowledge of Description essays from Learning Activities
Drafted a Writing Activity (WA2) about this Description essay.
Consulted with a writing tutor to find areas of strength and areas of improvement.
Finally, you will now compose the final draft of a description essay that:
contains a clear thesis
identifies clear points to support your thesis
engages in critical thought about the subject chosen
uses 2-4 main ideas (points) that support your overall essay thesis
allows you to expand on your chosen topic
This essay assignment represents the first steps in writing any written essay for any academic course. The idea of thesis and support are the cornerstones of all essays. They represent the last part of the writing process. However, you may still revise your essay before final submission. This form of essay writing is the basis for all other academic writing pursuits. This skill translates to almost all careers that require critical thinking, critical reading, and responding in writing. Practicing "how to" write an essay carries over into any field's task of "what" you need to write. This skill will help with all formal writing.
Write a 900-word essay, in MLA format, about a person or fictional character in whom you have an interest.
Select a subject (person or fictional character you admire)
Look to your Discussion (D1) and Writing Activity 2 (WA2) for your subject
The person may be current or historical
Some fictional characters have positive traits that can be identified.
Select several (2-4) traits about the person or character that you admire and write about these. These will be the essay's main ideas.
Biographical information should be used only to support claims.
Your essay should focus on the traits you admire. Do not write a biography or tell a story.
Example of what not to do: This person was born in 1979. They were born in middle Tennessee. They went to elementary school is 1985. They graduated in 1998.
Instead, follow this example: This person was born in middle Tennessee. Entering elementary in school in 1985 was hard for them. They never felt that they belonged in kindergarten. However, they persevered, learning that school was a place for them to grow and be themselves.
Focus on the "why" you admire them instead of a list of traits. In the above example, perseverance and learning to be themselves are the traits the writer of the essay admires.
Organize your main ideas to establish the essay's pattern of organization.
Your main ideas (traits you have chosen) need to be clearly organized.
Decide in what order you wish to discuss these main ideas (traits)
This organization needs to be presented in your introduction, preferably as the last sentence of your introduction in the thesis statement.
Note: your thesis is generally the last sentence in your introduction, but it not a requirement.
Follow this structure throughout the rest of the essay.
Always check to see if your main ideas/topic sentences, in each paragraph, relate back to your thesis statement.
Compose 5 well-developed paragraphs that support a clear thesis statement that is arguable.
5 paragraph minimum
introduces your essay and presents your thesis
three body paragraphs
Each paragraph contains one of your chosen admirable traits about your subject
expressed in a topic sentence in your paragraph
Each trait needs to transition to the next one in the next paragraph
look to your chosen pattern of development
rephrases your traits into one last paragraph
reflects the earlier thesis, but with the knowledge of your traits expressed throughout the essay
This essay is a basic form of an argument essay. The essay should make an argument such as that the person or character selected is worthy of admiration because of the traits selected.

7.Here is the topic, along with the assignment instructions:
Doctors who sit on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guideline panels
hensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guideline panels are allowed to receive up to $20,000 per year in payments from a single pharmaceutical or medical device company or $50,000 in the aggregate per year. Specifically, the NCCN website states the following: "If an NCCN Guidelines Panel Member or prospective Member or an NCCN Guidelines Steering Committee Member or prospective Member has an equal to or greater than $20,000 conflicting interest from at least one single external entity, including the sum of income and equity holdings from said entity, or if their aggregate conflicting interest from all external entities is equal to or greater than $50,000 per year, the Member or proposed appointee will be deemed ineligible for continued service or for appointment."
Some experts claim that these thresholds are way too high, and that NCCN guideline panelists should only be doctors who don't receive any money or funding from pharma whatsoever. But Dr Robert Carlson, the CEO of NCCN, defends the organization's current policy saying that tightening the rules would lead to exclusion of best experts in oncology and ultimately affect the quality of the guidelines.
Write a research paper that examines this question: Should NCCN panelists be allowed to receive any money or funding from pharmaceutical or/and medical device companies while serving on the panels? Support your stance on the issue with solid evidence from eight or more reputable sources and use APA citation style, 7th edition, for the assignment. Make sure your paper includes a title page on page 1 and an abstract on page 2, and is formatted in accordance with APA. Finally, please include an "Opposition" section in your paper where you will acknowledge and explain the views of people who would disagree with you.
8.Criteria for evaluation can change depending on the times, circumstance, and most importantly, with audience. This assignment will focus
audience. This assignment will focus on how criteria can change and how you need to tailor your essay to these changing audiences.
In good times, people may want homes with soaring entryways, lots of space and premium appliances. In tougher times, they may care more about efficient use of space, quality insulation, and energy efficient appliances. When gas prices are low, people love to buy SUVs and trucks, but when gas prices get higher, they prefer hybrid cars with good fuel efficiency.
Think of two scenarios, much like the ones above, where different audiences or different times create different criteria for evaluation. For example, what impact might global warming have on the way we determine desirable places to live or vacation? How might a changing economy change the way we view successful careers? If people across the globe continue to put on weight, how might standards of beauty change?
Si i have this assignment for English I just don't understand it here is the assignment:
Explore two scenarios in which change might revise customary values and standards for evaluation.
Each scenario should be a paragraph of at least 100 words in length.
