By Day 1 of the week, your   instructor will post a discussion question. Respond to your instructor’s   question and to your classmates’ responses. The goal of this discussion forum   is to have a single conversation about the topic, not a series of 30 separate   conversations. This means that every post should be in response to another   post. Only start a new thread if you want to address a whole different theme   within the topic, and only post after first carefully reading what others   have written. Do not repeat what your classmates have already said, and do   not ignore them if they ask you questions. Try to keep the conversation   moving forward. 

Attend discussion on at least four   separate days, and post a total of 800 words. There is no required word count   for individual posts as long as all your posts together total 800 words. Nor   is there a minimum number of posts, but you must post on at least four   separate days by Day 7.

Carefully review the Discussion Forum   Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be   used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.


Responses are listed below in the following order: response, author and the date and time the response is posted.

In       his essay on “The Tom Caricature,” sociologist David Pilgrim explains,       “in many African American communities ‘Uncle Tom’ is a slur used to       disparage a black person who is humiliatingly subservient or deferential       to white people.” This term is derived from stereotypes that grew out of       theatrical stage adaptations of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel, Uncle       Tom’s Cabin.       Evaluate the original character of Tom as portrayed by Stowe in light of       these later stereotypes. How is Stowe’s Tom like and unlike the stereotypical       “Uncle Tom”? Cite specific passages from the novel to support your       interpretations. For more background on the Tom stereotype, see Pilgrim’s       essay here:   

Feel       free to discuss other black stereotypes you see in the novel as well.

1. Be       sure to cite specific passages from the text that support your       interpretation with (last name of author, date, p. ).

2. *Attend       discussion on at least four separate days, and post a total of 800 words.       All your posts together total 800 words. The initial post, which should       be a response to my post, should be no less than 400 words at a minimum.       Nor is there a minimum number of posts, but you must post on at least       four separate days by Day 7. For example, one initial post and three threaded responses on       four different days. Post your initial post on day 3, Thursday, 6/9, and       all three threaded response postings must be up by day 7, Monday, 6/13.       They must be posed on different days, and they must have substantive       commentary. A post that says Nice work or I agree is not sufficient. 

3. Remember       that your initial post should be a response to my post. Then another       student posts a threaded response to that student, rather than each       student initiating an individual thread. Instead, we will have one       continuous thread in which you post an initial discussion and thread at       least three responses throughout your peers’ discussion. Respond to at       least 3 peers initial posts on at least three different days. So, you       should be in the discussion board a total of 4 days and have a total of 4       threaded posts, at a minimum. I prefer quality over quantity. Rather than       posting 6 responses with one sentence each, which will not fulfill the       requirements of a substantive response, do the three posts well and use       textual evidence to support your claims. 

Post       your initial post (threaded to my post, and the next post, and so on) on       day 3, Thursday, 6/9, and all threaded responses must be up by day 7,       Monday, 6/13.
