Free writing is all about exploration of ideas and getting them down on paper. Free writing allows you think critically about the readings, lectures, and other content. In these free writes, you don’t have to worry about grammar, complete sentences, or too much organization (students will need to meet some criteria to earn full points). The point is to get the ideas flowing and provide you with complete drafts that will build up to your final polished writing assignment, the Public Service Announcement. The number of free writes and point allocation are noted below. Details on each free write are available in the course site.
Public Service Announcement
As noted above, the free writes assigned in this course will contribute to your final polished writing assignment, the Public Service Announcement (PSA). Students will decide on a technology and society topic, conduct research on that topic, and then write out a short PSA script. This final PSA will need to be grammatically correct with complete sentences with correctly cited research and references formatted in APA. The point allocation is noted below and specific details are available in the course site.
Technology and society topics and issues are incredibly debatable! Many experts have differing researched opinions on various topics involving technology’s impacts on our social worlds and with these discussion boards, you will contribute your own researched opinions with one another. While you are encouraged to free write ideas on the discussion prompts, your final discussion responses will need to be polished. Your responses will need to be grammatically correct with complete sentences with correctly cited research and references formatted in APA. The number of discussion boards and point allocation are noted below. Details on each discussion are available in the course site.
