This assignment has TWO main parts:
Part 1: Discuss the following: Your understanding (or not) of the course material. Your sense of how you are progressing with respect to the course goals or other considerations important to you. Any insights you have about how you interact with mass media, how mass media may or may not affect your thinking (does it inspire you, depress you, etc.?).
Part 2: What makes a good children’s story? Everyone had a favorite book as a kid – You know, that tattered old thing you carried from room to room and made your parents read out loud to you over and over again. The one that you quoted until you were a little too old to be doing so. Our lives were shaped in part by the literature we loved as children.
Please answer the following: (1) What was your favorite children’s book (we’re not talking about young adult fiction here)? Think back to when you were 8 or younger to answer this question. You might consider books read to you by relatives, friends or teachers, or the first books you read on your own. (2) What made it so special? (3) What do you remember about reading or having it read to you?
The expectation is a thoughtful, reasoned, and well-written response that demonstrates a high level of critical thinking. As always, please pay attention to writing mechanics.
550-750 words should suffice (more is fine).
