Assignment using Communication and Interaction Resources

Assignment using Communication and Interaction Resources
California State University, Fresno
Radiolab has an excellent episode documenting how you would assign a price tag to nature used as a foundation for discussion. This is the introductory assignment in a climate change and environmental science class. It was formerly just a short answer response submission by individual students (file uploaded; screenshot of discussion prompt) which has now been expanded to include a discussion on Canvas that helps segway to the following week where water usage is introduced with a Jamboard (linked). This exercise engages students via three different means of communication and interaction. They listen to a podcast, reflect on their understanding and communicate that understanding in written form to the instructor and to their peers in an active discussion. They're also then subsequently engaged with a Jamboard that builds off this introductory activity, expanding the engagement tools used in this course.

Synthesis Assignment: Charting Where the Authors Intersect

Synthesis Assignment: Charting Where the Authors Intersect
California State University, San Bernardino
This assignment is designed for a First Year Composition course and would take place after several lessons on synthesis and close readings of the 2 texts, which is used to help prepare them for an essay where they develop their own theory on the issue of news media objectivity. Part 1 of the assignment asks students for homework to complete a chart [Google doc] identifying where the two authors' ideas intersect, how/why they intersect, and then asks the student to draw conclusions; what they're noticing about the scholarly conversation; what's at stake or forms the disagreement. The two scholars utilized for this assignment are Jay Rosen’s “Beyond Objectivity” and Linda Greenhouse’s “Challenging ‘He Said, She Said’ Journalism”, however any 2 texts on any issue can be substituted. Part 2 and 3 can be adapted as an in-class learning activity, either for synchronous or asynchronous course, or f2f. Part 2: Students complete a Google Shared Chart, where each student adds 1 idea from their homework. Part 3: Using Google Jamboard students then discuss what they discover in their synthesis in 3 prompts.
