Each weekly discussion should find an example from each assigned text of something that you feel is still relevant or at least resonant to the world we live in today. You will tell me what that example is, and then you will explain why it is still relevant or resonant. I will be grading on the fact that you have all components of a weekly discussion (initial post and two classmate responses), have met at least the minimum word counts, and have a specific example from each assigned author for the week (either as a direct quotation or specific paraphrase) that you then discuss in light of how that situation or idea is still relevant today.
