Just like a song has a melody around which everything else revolves, so does a reading passage. The melody of a reading is called the main idea. This week’s Discussion prompt is designed to build your skill in locating and responding to the main idea of a reading selection. By Day 4 Once you have read your selected resource from the suite of readings on ethics or social media and privacy, respond to one of the following appropriate topics. Be sure to provide attribution for any outside sources, using APA formatting. Begin your Discussion post by restating the main idea of your selected reading. •Topic 1 (Ethics): The poet Robert Browning writes: “Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?” The poet seems to say that a person should be able to dream more than he or she is able to achieve. Do you agree or disagree? Explain. Just because we know how to do something, does that mean we should do it? Consider any one of the articles on ethics. Write a 250-word persuasive paragraph in support of or opposition to the issue. •Topic 2 (Social Media and Privacy): Consider these questions about social media and privacy: Have you experienced an example of social media going too far, perhaps a posting you thought should not have been shared in this medium? What are the appropriate boundaries, if any, of social media usage? When using social media through a public forum, does the user give up his or her rights to privacy, or can the user reasonably expect that some degree or privacy can and should still be maintained? Consider any one of the articles on social media and privacy. Write a 250-word persuasive paragraph in support of or opposition to Internet privacy. By Day 6 Respond to the main post of at least one colleague. Find a point with which you agree and elaborate. Challenge your colleague by asking a question in response to what he or she has written. Feel free to disagree with the Discussion post and respond with an alternative idea of your own, keeping in mind that mutually respectful discourse is expected. Everyone does not all have to agree, but everyone does have to disagree respectfully.
