Due to the extraordinary circumstances of the Coronavirus outbreak, it has been necessary to alter the format of the capstone assignment. You will no longer be required to write a 1,000 word essay proving your thesis. Rather than a thorough analysis of how we know what we know about your event, you will demonstrate your understanding of class concepts by describing their application to your selected event. For each of the class concepts listed below, describe in 1-3 sentences how they serve as a lens for understanding your event. You donâ€™t have to worry about your thesis, just the event you have selected. Also, you will not be graded for writing quality, MLA format, or use of media. The only thing that will be graded is making the connections between your event and class concepts.
The class concepts are:
- Critical Perspective
- McLuhanâ€™s concepts of the medium is the message and the Global Village.
- Secrecy and revelation
- Fake news
- Social media
Remember, that’s 1-3 sentences for each concept.
If a class concept does not apply to your event, briefly explain why. However, it is likely that rhetoric and the Critical Perspective apply to everyoneâ€™s event.
