Discussion: There are 8 Discussion Questions on Canvas, basically one bi-weekly. These are to be answered in roughly 300 words. They are your thoughts (after reviewing the material). Once an initial answer is posted, you will have access to others’ posts. Please reply to at least one other student’s post with a follow-up question, additional thought, disagreement, etc. Please respond if I ask you a question in your thread. For each discussion question, you will get 12 points for the initial post of adequate size and thought and 6 points for adequate replies. If you feel that you’d like to pad your grade, replying to your replies will certainly be noted if there are ever those “Can you round my 89.1% to a 90%?” questions. Initial posts are due on Fridays, all responses are due by Sundays.
Choose one of the pages from this module to write about (Framing & Party Realignment). Ask any questions you have, share your thoughts, discuss your insecurities.
To get you started. Ever heard of framing before? Did you know that every story, every time we speak, it has to be framed in some way? Were you shocked by either Gillette? What were your takeaways from the responses? What about that party alignment and re-alignment? Do you, like me, wish that they would have just changed names instead of switching all around in ideology? Kind of hard to realize that the “same parties” have danced all around the political spectrum?
