In Class - Discuss rubric regarding your blog (see 1/14 post). Turn in Double Entry Web Journal (health care). K-W-L chart regarding health care (this is due on the day of the discussion). Hand out health care packet (Discussion Questions: "Sick Around the World" and "Obama's Deal." Answer these questions while the video progresses.
Homework - Update your blog (I will start grading your blog this week!!!). QOW Response due by Friday, January 21 by 11:59 pm.
QOW - Read through a series of responses regarding the previous QOW. As you read through other student comments, I want you to select a few responses and respond to these responses. In other words, read through your fellow classmates' post, agree with this person, disagree with this person, highlight some interesting points, ask a critical question, share your arguments, respond to their arguments...This is an opportunity for you to critically analyze another response.
Agree to disagree, however, be sure your statements and arguments are clearly worded and organized, be sure to use civility in your online discussion, and use this as an opportunity to gain perspective in someone else's point of view. Again, use civility if you disagree. Remember, attempting to "call someone out" on their way of thinking is not acceptable. This is an extension of the classroom and civil discourse must be displayed at all times. If I feel you are attacking someone instead of their arguments, then I will give you a zero (0) for this QOW.
This response must include a works cited page and is due by 11:59 on Friday, January 21.
