  • The Concept of Power Discussion (ES 1)<p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14px;">Directions & Point Breakdown:</span></strong></span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: 14px;"> Spell check your post before submitting and keep all posts academic. Though this is social, it is still considered a formal setting.</span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: 14px;"> Your initial post is worth 2 points. You will be graded on grammar, spelling, and thoughtfulness of response. To make your response thoughtful, use the PEA Method. State your point, provide evidence to support it, and tell us why your evidence proves your point.</span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: 14px;"> You can earn 2 more points (for a total of 4) for posting 2 more times in the discussion board. The posts can be questions or thoughtful comments.</span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: 14px;"> Posting "I agree" or a 1 sentence response will not earn your credit. You'll need to explain your thoughts thoroughly.</span></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14px;">Questions:</span></strong></span></p> <ol> <li><span style="font-size: 14px;">After watching the video in the previous lesson and reviewing what you wrote at the beginning of the quarter, what do you think power is?</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 14px;">Describe a situation where power can be abused AND used for good. Essentially, describe a single moment where it could be viewed either way.</span></li> <li><span style="font-size: 14px;">Explain why the perspective on power in that situation would change. Why would someone view it as power being used for good while another person might view it as power being abused?</span></li> </ol>
