Week 1 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses.
A significant part of understanding and teaching language is having a strong grasp of the meanings and applications of five fundamental language terms: lexicon, morphology, pragmatics, semantics, and syntax.
You will want to know more about each of these important language terms and conduct your own research. develop a list of print and media resources to help you with this. For each of the five language terms, locate, correctly cite, and briefly describe at least one research based source that can assist you with learning and applying these terms in the classroom. What makes each source useful to you?
Also locate, correctly cite, and briefly describe at least one media source (video, power point, or other media-based source) that can assist you with learning and applying these terms in the classroom. What makes each source useful to you?
Guided Response: Select at least two classmates’ responses for review and response. In evaluating their brief resource descriptions, decide which print or media source would be the most useful to you in helping to learn one of the language terms. Be sure to include your rationale for your selection. Also, be sure to respond to any questions from your instructor. Finally, use this research as one basis for this week’s paper.
Carefully review the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.
