To prepare for this week’s discussion, first go to YouTube and watch two videos:
(The above links are current; if they do not work, search for videos using the titles/key terms above.)
Now read “Lucy, You Have Some ‘Splainin’ to Do,” pp. 326-330 in The Writer’s Way.
For this discussion, think about the ways the student author, Nicole Benbow, connects something most of us are familiar with (The I Love Lucy television series) to larger issues concerning perceptions of women in the workplace. Think about how she tries to get us to see the TV series—and the larger issue—in a new way.
In your initial post, write a 75- to 150-word response in which you address the following questions:
- What is the central point/thesis? What evidence does the author give to support this thesis? Is her argument convincing?
- What is your reaction to this essay? Do you find Benbow’s argument convincing? Why or why not?
- A good argument needs counterarguments. Can you think of some reasonable opposing views to Benbow’s argument?
- Note the unorthodox structure the author employed in writing this essay. She begins with a riddle and solves it at the end. Is this an effective way to write an essay? What other rules does she “break”
Week 6: Where Does the Time Go?
It’s pretty common to hear people say, “I don’t know how I am going to get this all done.” We may think we manage our time well and know how to multitask, but there are always tips and tricks that help us make the most of our time.
For example, every day after school, one mother usually waited for her son 10-15 minutes in the parking lot of the elementary school. She realized that sitting there was simply a waste of her time. She then chose to log in to her online class with her cell phone and read her textbook during this time. At the end of the week, she realized that the time in the car was 50-75 minutes of reading time!
Likewise, a father carried 10 flashcards each day in his pocket. He took 5 minutes on each of his breaks at work to review the cards. He found that he retained so much more information by taking 5 minutes here and there to review concepts. Tips like this help students balance school, work, family, and other life demands.
In this post, you will:
- Explain time management in your own words.
- Explain how a person truly knows if he or she manages time well. What evidence supports the idea that someone manages time well?
- Provide at least two time-saving tips that you use/ have used at school, at work, or in life, and explain how they have helped you.
- Explain how “I need” statements can help with time management.
