Thought-o-logues: You may either do a “thought-o-logue” or some other creative project where you define, apply, and share course concepts and do something to change a related problem that you identify. Thought-o-logues are 3-5 minute presentations that you give on material that we have covered in class. There are a few requirements, and you also have the chance to share your thoughts, feelings, experiences, or views on the material. I ask that you select and define 3 keywords from the reading or class lecture and discussions—keywords are key concepts that we have defined in class or that authors that we have read have defined in readings or in video material assigned for this class. This is the “define” part of the assignment. Please don’t define the same keywords as another presenter. Apply the keywords in any way you choose—in an example you find in media, in old or new media, in a social media posting, news article, law, cultural practice, anything you chose from media, culture, or the political economy of communications. Share your thoughts, feelings, experiences or views that are relevant to what you have chosen to discuss. Your thought-o-logue should tell us what you define, apply, and share.
OR you can deliver your though-o-logue in a different mode as a creative work along as you define, apply, and share course concepts and do something as outlined above.
Sign ups for one date to present your thought-ologue or creative project. Sign up in class.
Evaluation is based on completeness, thoughtfulness, you integrate your own experiences/thoughts/feelings on what you discuss or present, bonus points for creativity.
