Discussions will be weighted according to your participation in the breakout rooms.
This is your first discussion which is part of your participation grade for this class. In a minimum of 250 worlds, discuss why you believe the humanities is an important part of higher eduction, or, if you do not believe that premise explain why?
First, read the related documents before you reply, so that your answer is thoughtful. You can either navigate through the previous button below or the Pages link on the left hand navigation. There are 2 documents, so you will have to navigate accordingly. You can always find all online documents for this class in Pages. Next, reflect and write a brief synopsis of each writer’s argument. Define and explain any concepts which the article covers which the article either introduces to you, or it is not part of your everyday conversation with family and friends such as pluralism. Then take a position. For instance, you may explain why the concept matters or does not matter. What is the position of the writer? Do you agree or disagree with them? State, in one or two sentences, your position or claim. Finally, elaborate by citing specifics such as quoting from the essays themselves. You may, moreover, draw from your own experiences either in class or out of class.
What are the consequences of that?
