After you read the two articles and the transcript that I attached, answer the following questions.
In your own words, what is the purpose of education? Why is it important to get an education?
What is at least one thing from each of the sources that stood out to you? (This answer should include a list of at least three points and should cover Pierson, King & Gaiman.)
How does Dr. King Jr.’s text or Pierson’s video relate to your experience in education so far?
What is at least one quote from each source that you connected with? Why do you feel it is significant? Why did you choose it? (This answer should include a list of at least three quotes and should cover Pierson, King & Gaiman.)
What was your biggest A-HA moment or takeaway? (This can be from any of the three sources or involve all three.)
How did you feel reading through Week 1’s articles and watching the TED Talk? Were they easy or hard to read/watch? What did you like/dislike about them? What, if any, connections can you make between the experiences of the authors and speakers and your own experiences? (This answer should cover all sources.)
This question is optional, and thus you do not have to answer it to receive full points.Do you have any questions for me or your fellow classmates about any of the materials we have covered last week? (If you have questions from your Annotation Worksheets, you can post them here.)
Your initial response should be 150-300 words per question.
