Peter Rabbit And The Genesis Garden Story

Part1. Consider stories such as Peter Rabbit and the Genesis garden story: in both, the authority figure tells the protagonist what not to do. In each story, the protagonist violates the prohibition, which leads to two levels of consequence: personal consequences, and consequences with the prohibitor. (260words)

Write a short story that uses these four elements as the basic plot line:
- a prohibition, rule, or commandment from an authority figure
- doing the prohibited
- personal short-term consequences for the protagonist
- long-term, authority consequences

Note that the first and final elements have to do with the prohibitor or authority, while the middle two have to do with the protagonist (who is "doing the don't").

Part1-1. Please give critical feedback by analyzing the details they've used. Where did the student show? Where did they tell? What details or actions or behaviors that were shown were the most evocative or curious? Why? (20words)

    Peer's post: One of the greatest regrets of my life is dating my high school boyfriend. You know, the one that kind of ruins the whole concept of dating for the foreseeable future? Yeah, that guy. We dated for two years, and during that time out social lives melted together and my friends were his friends and we all were close. Everything, to the unknowing eye would have seemed incredible, but he was jealous, and I was naive. As our relationship progressed I noticed that certain interactions between me and his friends would set him off. So one day hoping to solve some of the problems of mistrust I asked, “What exactly do I do that makes you uncomfortable, so I know not to do it.”

Looking back that was perhaps the dumbest thing I could have said, because out came a list of things that apparently were breakup worth offenses. Taking to other guys when he wasn’t around, liking his friends posts on Instagram, being polite to male baristas. I suddenly felt as though a breakup was inevitable and it would be my fault because something I did would make him upset.

I spent as much time with him as possible with him the summer after my junior year since he’d be leaving for college in the fall. And when he did it was devastating but we called and FaceTimed and everything seemed fine. A few months later his mom called me and asked if I would be willing to take something to my schools office for her, and after I hung up my boyfriends best friend called asking for a ride to school since his truck wasn’t starting. We had become friends the last few years and I didn’t think twice about it. So with his friend in the car I stopped by his house to talk to his mom, and we were off to school.

After the final bell I had over two hundred texts a dozen voicemails, and even an e-mail. I called my boyfriend who started screaming at me, calling me a cheating, lying bitch. Meanwhile I just sat in my car crying, so confused. At the end of his screaming he dumped me and hung up. I was heartbroken, but I moved on in the next few weeks. By the end of the semester I was happy again, and felt so much relief not having to second guess all of my actions. I reconnected with friends I hadn’t been allowed to see. I took a date to our winter formal, and everything was great.

My now ex-boyfriend had decided to transfer back to our local college, so I regularly saw him around our seemingly tiny town, and when I did I ignored him and moved on. On Valentines day I received a disturbing singing telegram at my school at at first seemed cute until I realized who had sent it. I was talking to a friend about it in class and my teacher overheard. I told him all about seeing him around and the telegram, and he accompanied me to talk to the police. I told them everything. Two years of information and personal details. The officers looked shocked. They set me up with a restraining order on him, and personally served it to his house.

Over the last few years he has followed me to California and even gone on a date with a girl who lived down the hall from me. I’m so happy that despite this mildly traumatic experience that I’ve been able to move on and live a happy life. Every once in a while I feel bad that he seems to have some unresolved feelings towards be that are holding him back from doing the same, but in the end he deserves to have to explain the restraining order, and live with it. Maybe one day I won’t see him lurking around corners, but I’ll always be the girl he drove away and then felt the need to follow for years.

Discussion Responses Ancient Iran Religion & State Course

Please dedicate 1 page per response to each weeks readings. I have attached the readings that you will need. I have also provided a peer's sample answer for each weeks discussion. Please do not copy it but feel free to use it as inspiration.

Week 1 Reading: Crone - Nativist Prophets - Intro
(1 page)

Sample Response: For this week, we read about the aftermath of the Arab invasion of Persia and the conversion to Islam. While Crone discusses the ramifications of this event in her book, it is interesting to note the various paths of conversion taken by people from different demographics. For instance, we know that people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds were among the first converters. Nonetheless, Crone discusses the prevalence of resistance by the Persians to this change: "Back in Iran there had been plenty of resistance to the Arabs. The same places had to be conquered again and again, having turned traitors’(ghadaruˉ)or been ‘unfaithful’(kafaruˉ)or ‘broken their treaty’(naqad ̇uˉ), as the Muslim sources laconically inform us" (Nativist Prophets, 6). Upon scrutinizing this phenomenon, it is apparent that not only was the conversion a gradual process, but more importantly, many of the converters were not loyal to the new administration (caliphate). Notably, this fact is manifested in more well-known revolts such as those of the Hashimite, which stemmed from Khurasan (eastern Iran). In summation, analysis of such tensions between various local groups and their objective for revolt underlines an important aspect that Persians did not accept being governed by a foreign authority even though they may have shared the same religious values.

Durkheimian Tradition

Discuss the work of a theorist from the Durkheimian Tradition referencing Randall Collins, Four Sociological Traditions.


Evagelism And Christianity

1. “What is the biggest reason why you do not turn to God the Father in repentance, faith, and submission?”
2. “What is your biggest objection to Christianity that prevents you from becoming a Christian?”
Tell this person that one of your assignments is to address people’s questions, concerns, and/or objections to Christianity – and that you would like to write about a topic of his or her own choosing.
Your paper needs to be 8-10 pages (complete with a title page and 8-10 different references) that addresses the person’s questions, concerns, or objections. If possible, try to limit your paper to one main topic. This paper needs to be research-based – with frequent citations from the literature and frequent references to Scripture. During the fifth class session you will participate in an ALP workshop. You will present an initial biography (with 8-10 different resources) and discuss any problems you have encountered. Your professor will give guidance during this workshop about additional resources and help you work through difficulties.


Early Modern Europe

Answer the following question: What role did European nations play on the global stage in the early modern period? How was their role defined (or shaped) by non-European people and powers? Provide examples from the textbook, additional readings, class discussion, and film/videos. You must integrate one of the primary sources we analyzed in the unit from the Working with Evidence section of the textbook or from the unit learning guide. A strong essay will: Answer all parts of the question(s). Include introductions and conclusions Provide analysis and examples to support all points. While a works cited page is not necessary if you stick with course resources, provide in-text citations throughout your essay. Use complete sentences, well-formed paragraphs, and proper grammar. Consist of roughly 5-6 paragraphs.


Annotated Bibliography

An annotated bibliography is your research for your research paper--it is a works cited page with annotations for each source. Each annotation needs to be *your own words* and should be 100-150 words, in alphabetical order. You should explore how you will be using each source, what the main arguments are within each source, what kind of claim they are making, any counter arguments they provide, as well as if there are any charts or other types of data that you will be putting in an appendix within your research paper. You will use MLA formatting (pages 801-804 in our book).
You need to have 10-12 sources, and this is the list of types of sources you need to have:
2-3 books (these can be electronic versions of the books, if you cannot get the physical copies)
5-6 articles (a collection of essays by different authors within a book is considered an article)
1-2 websites that are not wikipedia, any advertising, or for-profit business. So this would be an edu, org, gov or other legit site
1-2 other sources--this can be an interview, a documentary, pamphlet, or other non-traditional source.


Research Proposal Prompt

Research Proposal Prompt

CONTEXT: 

Proposals can help researchers refine their projects and give them direction for the research process. This type of genre is important for academic, professional, and public forms of writing; it signals to interested parties what your preliminary research plan is, why your topic matters, how you plan to learn more about it, and what your objective for the project is. The endgame of this course is an argumentative research project. This proposal assignment is meant to help you develop your research trajectory for the remainder of the course.

 

WRITING TASK:

In creating a research proposal, you’ll aim to do the following: 1) develop your research project, 2) identify context about the topic you’re writing about 3) outline your methods for discovery 4) develop your research questions and 5) discuss your initial references. Doing so will help you get on the right track for your final project for class, and it will allow me an opportunity to make suggestions early on in the project about how you can modify/refine your research process. Your proposal should include: 
 

  • An introduction that describes the topic you’re interested in writing about, specifically outlining an overview of the topic, what the problem is, or why this is a timely issue right now. Your introduction should be written for a nonexpert on this topic, and you should convey why this is significant/why people should care about it. It should also establish your credibility and expertise (i.e., what qualifies you to talk about the subject—think back to ethos discussions in ENGL 103). 
  • A background section that overviews how people are talking about this topic and the various perspectives they’re providing. This section is akin to a literature review, which surveys the current research on the topic and connects them together.
  • A description of your methods for research that talks about how you intend to conduct research. What information will you be looking at to make assessments/learn new information about your topic? For example, will you look at social media, conduct interviews, read peer-reviewed journals, conduct interviews or surveys, etc.
  • A list of your research questions. You only need one question for your final project, but for the purposes of the proposal, you may include 1-3 questions so we can work on refining them/ determine the best question to answer for the scope of this project. Your research question(s) should be answerable, open-ended, and realistic. This section should also identify your audience and stakeholders for the project. You want to set yourself up for success when you’re planning this stage of your research process. See the Research Process lecture on Blackboard for a helpful formula.
  • A preliminary working thesis which hints at the main argument you may make in the final project. You don’t want to approach your research as if you already know the answer, but you may want to posit some hypotheses that may relate to your final thesis claim. 
  • Preliminary References: In MLA or APA format. Your format will ultimately depend on your topic.

GUIDELINES:

  • Draft due: Friday, March 5th by 11:59 PM (end of week 8); 20% of your final course grade
  • 3-5 well-developed pages (750-1,250 words) not including References/Works Cited
  • I encourage you to sign up for a conference to discuss your proposal and research trajectory during week 8

A SUCCESSFUL PROPOSAL:

  • Contains an overview of your topic that addresses its timeliness
  • Addresses what qualifies you to talk about the subject
  • Contains a background/literature review that cites at least 3 relevant sources
  • Identifies the research methods you plan to use
  • Contains at least 1 open-ended research question
  • Identifies your project’s audience and purpose
  • Cites all sources used
