Discussion

Discussion

 (Optional Discussion Posting) Musicologist Craig Wright states: “In the 1960’s, a reaction against the formal abstractions of Schoenberg and his disciples contributed to the increasing popularity of musical Postmodernism. Composers and the listening public had rebelled, choosing to embrace a variety of musical styles – electronic music, chance music, and Minimalism, for example. Viewed broadly, Modernism turned and did battle with traditional musical styles.”  Do a little research and give two examples of these new styles that are not included in your textbook. Please write at least 2 paragraphs, one paragraph on each piece. You may use Wikipedia as a source for information, but this must be in your own words. Do not copy and paste, or you won’t get any credit. (5 points extra credit)  P.S. You cannot use the same two works that your classmates have already chosen if they have done this discussion post. 

Professional development

Professional development

  • In the 21st century, there are few people who do not have an established social media presence.  This is part of your brand. Establishing a brand that is attractive to potential employers is a crucial step in the job search process. Your presence on social media accounts can help or hurt your job search.
    • Consider your presence on social media, whether personal or professional.
      • Describe one element of your social media presence that you can use to support the brand you want your potential employers to see. How does this element demonstrate the elements of P.R.I.C.E or some soft skills? Support your response with at least one external resource.
      • Describe one element of your social media presence that could negatively affect the impression potential employers have of you (your brand). How does this element impair your goal to present yourself as a professional?
    • Describe two tasks you can perform to strengthen and/or improve your brand using social media. Support your response with at least one external resource.
      • For each task, describe how completing it would help you in your job search activities.
      • For each task, discuss any barriers you might anticipate while completing it.

Please be sure to validate your opinions and ideas with citations and references in APA format.

Then focus your reflective writing on–

  • What 3 key elements from the 3 sources listed above made the biggest impression on you. Why do you think that is?
  • Why do you think bullying seems to be so prevalent in the workplace?
  • Finally, do the confirming and disconfirming climates we create in our face-to-face conversations transfer to the communication we experience online?  Why is that do you think? Explain your perspective.

Discussion/Response: Managing Conflict/Conflict as Metaphor

11 unread reply.11 reply.

After studying Lessons 13. 1 and 13.2, you’ll want to prepare for this assignment by carefully thinking about how you “view” conflict. Is it a “necessary evil”? Do you see it as something you’d rather “run from” or do you relish a “good fight”?

How do you approach a conflicting situation? Do you try to avoid it at all costs? Do you “come out swinging” with the attitude of “it’s my way or the highway”? Do you try to “accommodate” and “play nice” in most challenging scenarios?

You see, we often react to conflict or “deal with it” based on how we visualize it. So, take some time here to develop your perspective of “conflict”. Ask yourself, “how do I view conflict”? Can you distill your view to a single metaphoric statement?

If you’re not familiar with metaphor as a figure of speech, think about it as taking an abstract object or action and comparing it to a concrete concept, action, or object in order to clarify or better understand the first abstract thought or notion. You see, we want to clarify or identify hidden similarities between the two.

Basically, when we compare the abstract thought to a more concrete thought we understand it better…. we get a better grasp of the meaning.  A metaphor however is not a definition it’s figurative language and it’s often quite eloquent and theatrical. For example, the phrase  

“The eyes are the windows of the soul”

is an expressive and eloquent way to say that an individual’s eyes can help us see who they are as a human being. We can see a person’s emotional state or character by looking deep into their eyes. The eyes are not literally windows, but if you take the time to listen and look at someone deeply in conversation you may find out the essence of who they are as a human being. Another way to think of it could be “Kayla’s eyes are the windows of her soul.” We can see Kayla’s emotional state by looking into her expressive eyes. 

Another example of a metaphoric phrase is

“Patience is a virtue.”

Having patience is an asset. It’s a gift. It is enduring. It is a persistent quality…. a durable and desirable characteristic. 

And finally, we can make the metaphoric statement

“Love is blind”

when we are in the throes of love (consumed with love) and we may not be capable of seeing the flaws in our loved one. We may not choose to see the flaws or we are incapable of seeing the flaws or inadequacies of our loved one. 

Do you see how metaphors can help make sense of challenging terms or experiences.  So, can we create a metaphor for conflict? How do you “see” conflict? What is your perspective? 

Is conflict–

  • “an airplane flying to the ground” — (preparing to land or about to crash land) 
  • “biting your lip” — (it hurts but you do it anyway)
  • “a strong cup of coffee” — (you need it to wake up in the morning, but too much keeps you from sleeping at night)

————————————

Here’s your opportunity to be creative in your thinking….

1. Develop your own unique perspective of “conflict” into a single metaphoric statement and include it at the top of your post. Be original. Make it your own.  It’s critical that you complete this work first. 

2. Only then do you want to watch the following video-

While doing so, ask yourself:  

  • How does my metaphor reflect how I think and feel about conflict? What are the options inside the metaphor?
  • Does my metaphor orient me to see the “ugliness” or the “beauty” in conflict? 
  • How might I transform my metaphor to transform my view of conflict and thereby transform my relationships? 
  • In what ways can I use conflict communication as a tool to deepen and grow my relationships that are near and dear to me?  (Use the story in the video or your own experience to think about this.)

3. Develop your response to these prompts using a minimum of 15 to 20 sentences and post them below your metaphor statement.

For the Section 2 Discussion Board, I would like you to go back to the pdf on Character in the Section 1 folder.  After you have reacquainted yourself with the terminology discussed there, I would like you to write an analysis of the characters found in the stories we have read in this section.  Are they flat or round?  Stock characters, foils, or sterotypes?  

Once you have identified the characters and explained the reasoning behind your decisions, I would then like you to consider the authors’ style of characterization.  Do they use direct or indirectstyles of characterization?  Both?  Please give properly cited examples from the text to provide evidence for your choices. 

If you are having trouble discerning between direct and indirect characterization, please also see the discussion of “Levels of Meaning” in the pdf on Style in Section 1.  Denotation is when information is given directly.  An example would be if an author told us, “Bill had a terrible temper”.  Connotation is when the information is implied or revealed indirectly.  An example would be if an author provided a scene where we saw Bill stub his toe and everyone around him suddenly went silent and stepped back nervously, implying to the audience that Bill had a bad temper but not telling us directly

To get you started, try to consider what the diction, syntax, and dialect of Diaz’s narrator in “How to Date a Browngirl, Blackgirl, Whitegirl, or Halfie”, tells us about his character.  The manner in which his narrator speaks to us implies so much about the character that then does not have to be explained directly

Please watch:  

“The Graduate” – director, Mike Nichols (1967)

Please answer:

Keep track of camera angles other than eye-level shots.

If there are high- or low-angle shots, determine whether they are POV shots. That is, is the high or low angle meant to represent another character’s point of view?

If so, what does the angle convey about that character’s state of mind? If not, what does it convey about the person or thing in the frame?
