Week 1 discussion
DQ1 Practicing Critical Reading and Annotation Skills
In this discussion, you will be practicing close reading
techniques you read about in Sections 1, 2, and 3. You will be working on
identifying aspects of short stories. You will also practice annotation skills
to help you perform close readings of digital material.
Choose an Aesop’s Fable from the selection below. Read
several and choose one that interests you and one that you will be able to work
PDF Reading: Choice of fable: Aesop’s Fables
Read through the fable once to get the plot, character, and
setting and moral down. You will be treating the moral as the theme of the
fable, and you will want to demonstrate how the details of the fable support
the theme.
There are four parts to this posting:
1. Annotate Your Fable. Start by using some of the provided
strategies for reading: annotate the fable by highlighting and adding comments.
If you are using a print copy, that’s fine. Just be sure to annotate it
according to the provided strategies.
For example, as shown in the PDF on annotation, on the left
side of your chosen fable, make a few comments where the key points of the
story occur. For example, identify the key character(s) and what they do.
On the right side, make notes on the key word(s) which can
answer the following question: What details of the fable support the abstract
concept of the moral?
If you are able to do so, take a screenshot (or a picture if
you’re using a print version) of your annotated fable. Save it as a PDF and attach
it to your response in the discussion. LEO does not allow the copying of images
directly into the textboxes.
2. Present a Summary. In your discussion posting, provide a
one- to three-sentence summary of the fable. The summary should state just the
facts, not any opinion or ideas. Then note which details support the moral;
importantly, identify the keyword(s) that are present in the fable.
Reminder: Summarizing can help you understand more complex
material. As you decide on what to include, remember to focus only on the key
ideas. Identifying the keyword(s) first will help you with the writing of the
summary. That’s where annotation helps!
3. Provide an Explanation. Once you have completed your
analysis of the fable for details, consider how those details support the fable
and write a brief explanation
Example: In “The Fox and the Grapes”, an important
detail of the plot is that the fox failed to get the grapes, despite his
repeated attempts. The grapes are an important detail as well because they were
growing so high above the fox and he could not jump high enough; thus the
setting of the grape arbor is important too.
One detail that is not present is whether the grapes taste
sweet or sour. That specific detail is not provided to us by Aesop. However,
the fox imposes that opinion on the grapes in order to justify his failure,
thereby not focusing on how he failed but how he wouldn’t have wanted them
anyway. He denies that he failed, and assumes that the grapes weren’t worth the
effort anyway. In the video, then, we see Aesop’s daughter falling under the
same parameters of failure: she cannot purchase the handbag because it is so
expensive, so she decided she doesn’t like it anyway.
4. Your Annotation Strategy. Include a separate paragraph to
explain the annotation strategy you used to develop your response. Also note
how you may use this strategy for future readings of digital material. If you
had any trouble issues or areas of concern working through this critical
reading strategy, please note them as well.

DQ2 Reflection: Your Writing Process
Throughout the term, you will be asked to complete a weekly
discussion that asks you to reflect on what you’re learning about your writing
process. These discussions are required. These reflections will help you to
develop and refine your writing process.
You may pick up some hints from your fellow students on how
to tackle writing obstacles like procrastination or how to focus on your
strengths. You may want to post on what you’re taking away from the weekly discussion
or what you want to work on in the upcoming weeks of the course.
It will also help you to generate some thoughts for your
writing reflections which are due along with Papers 1 and 2. Importantly, by
the end of the course, you will want to be aware of your writing process and
apply that writing process to any type of writing assignment you may have,
whether in academic or business/professional.
In this first discussion on your writing process, post some
thoughts on what you’re taking away from Week 1 and into Week 2. For example,
have you thought about the connection between critical reading and writing? How
do you read and take notes and then generate material?
Any and all reflections are welcome here.
