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.
2.Hi there, I am trying to write a paper and I have absolutely no idea where to start. The instructions
s are as follows:
Present an argument that explains the most important cause(s) and the most important effect(s) of refugee crises in world history. Papers should use an array of specific examples drawn from at least three chapters of Spohnholz’s Ruptured Lives as well as historical evidence from at least one of the primary sources in Primary Source Activity 2. In your conclusion, suggest at least one way that understanding this history can help us address refugees today, referring to a recent news article on the subject. The paper should be double-spaced in 12-point font, use footnote citations, and be 2-3 pages long.
4.So I am looking at polar and Cartesian and converting between the two. My question is, I have never seen
seen an equation of a circle this is moved in both the x and y direction be converted to a polar equation.
For example, I know that the equation of a circle x^(2)+(y-2)^(2)=4 is r=4sin(theta) when converted to polar. Same thing for a translation with the x variable. However, I have never seen, nor do I know how to do, a conversion of a circle with both translations. For example, converting this equation of a circle to a polar equation: (x+3)^(2)+(y-4)^(2)=4. I have no idea how to do such a thing and cannot find any examples of such.
Hope you can shed some light on this, Thanks.
