Blog Post #2 – Due Thurs. Sept 20th

Start here

Blog Post due before 2pm on Thursday, September 20th. Of course, this can be posted beforehand. Just don’t miss your deadline.

I was looking at so many different assignments, and spotted this subject… and where we are right now, could be a good day!

Topic: Political Correctness & Language

Read these three articles:

http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2015/09/the-coddling-of-the-american-mind/399356/

how-political-correctness-went-from-punch-line-to-panic-the-new-york-times

Watch these videos: Content is adult-themed as is the language but you’re adults 🙂

What to Write About:

Do you agree or disagree with political correctness? Is it THAT simple? What about the George Carlin video? What point is he trying to make?

Do you agree/disagree with what is in the articles? What about Bill Maher? Do you agree/disagree? Are his points valid in the two pieces?

What are your thoughts on college campus/safe spaces?

Expand in whatever way you want. Find an article or video that can expand or disagree with the work above… that could be fun.

Word Count: 500-1000 words

Be prepared to discuss in class on the 20th.

Thanks all!

Professor Dunphy
