To be able to discuss the writing process for the Song Assignment with your peers, students are asked to participate in two discussion forums. The professor and/or TA will not engage students in the discussion forums. Discussions are intended for students to share their thoughts about the Song Assignment process, help each other, and to respond other studentsâ€™ ideas. Please follow the directions and address all the prompts below.
Discussion 1: In this discussion, students are asked to share the song(s) they are considering using for the Song Assignment and, in a few sentences (3-5), explain why.
In your writing, you are required to quote something from the song lyrics to support why you are leaning toward using a particular song. See the example below for how to cite the artistâ€™s or groupâ€™s name.
Example Quote: â€œYou could say Iâ€™m a little bit crazy. You could call me insane. Walking around with all these whispers, running around here in my brain. I just canâ€™t help but hear â€˜em, man I canâ€™t afford it. I hear voices, I hear voices!â€ (Chris Young)
For full credit, students should respond to at least one other student.
