Choose a genre of art, film, music, literature (poetry or fiction), photography, or video game that you enjoy (if you have another type of text in mind, run it past me first).

Choose a genre of art, film, music, literature (poetry or fiction), photography, or video game that you enjoy (if you have another type of text in mind, run it past me first). For example, film and literature genres can include horror, sci-fi, romance, westerns, fantasy, or steam punk, but the work must be fictional. Music genres can include country, hard rock, hip hop, techno, dubstep, or blue grass. There are other genres, too, but whatever genre you choose, it must be widely recognized – avoid creating your own genre that mixes various styles but would not be recognized on a national scale.
Your task is to then identify what are the salient features of that genre; in other words, if you were to create a “recipe” for what is required for a work to be a part of the genre, what would it be? What separates it from other genres and makes it unique? Put another way, how do we immediately know we’re seeing or hearing something that belongs to a particular genre?

Although considered the worst form of torture, the pennsylvania system of total isolation, silence, and solitude for the prisoners could be an opportunity for self-reflection, depending on the prisoner’s mental attitude.

1-2 page (typed, double-spaced) response with your initial thoughts, feelings, questions, and
” responses to the Chapters 3-4 of Are Prisons Obsolete?
That’s my initial thought
I find it interesting that the current penitentiary systems have their root in religious ideologies. It is ironic also to realize that the punitive prison system was a product of concerted efforts to create a better corrective system by the reformers (Davis 40). However, an analysis of the penitentiary system shows that prisons are moving away from the deadly and cruel methods of correction to more lenient approaches to offenders. It is interesting to note how people have moved away from a punitive system where they employed torture, burning, mutilating, or burying offenders alive, to a more corrective one where the only punishment is confinement to maximum prisons. Based on history, there is hope that more humane systems of correction will be instituted as time goes by.
The ideas of John Howard, such as disciplined self-reflection and internalization, are fascinating concepts incorporated in the Penitentiary Act of 1799 (Davis 46). I think that if prisoners could change their perception about their incarceration, they would have it easy in cells as they wait to serve their sentences. A shift in mental perspective from seeing oneself as a prisoner in jail to a monk in a monastery and seeing the sentence period as an opportunity for self-reflection and connecting with God can help reform even the most hardcore offenders. Although considered the worst form of torture, the Pennsylvania system of total isolation, silence, and solitude for the prisoners could be an opportunity for self-reflection, depending on the prisoner’s mental attitude. This form of physical confinement could have emancipatory effects on the prisoner, such as allowing the soul to flourish (Davis 48). This idea shows the involvement of religious leaders in shaping the penitentiary system.
From harsh punitive measures to lenient modes of confinement, there is more the prison system can do to offer better services to the offenders and encourage them to reform.

ASSIGNMENT: You will be proposing the topic you wish to write about for the Modu

ASSIGNMENT: You will be proposing the topic you wish to write about for the Module One Descriptive Narration and responding to two peers. Once you have selected a topic, write a 250-word response, please answer the following questions in complete sentences.
What is your narration about?
Who is the main character?
Where is your narration set?
What is the general plot of your narration?
Do you know how you would like to end your narration?
Topic proposals that do not answer and address these questions will receive an automatic failing grade.
—————————————————————————————————————————————————————–
PURPOSE: The purpose of a discussing a topic is to ensure that you have picked an appropriate focus that fits within the scope of certain requirements whether it be for an assignment, conference, or presentation. Often, students pick a topic that is too broad which requires a longer, more advanced writing than what is required for our module. Remember the importance of selecting a topic you have personal knowledge of and a topic that is small enough that you can adequately and thoroughly discuss it within the essay length requirements.
—————————————————————————————————————————————————————–COMMENTS: Respond to two of your peers. Your response to each classmate should be approximately 100 words long and should contain at least one piece of advice that—if followed—would improve the publish in your opinion. Your post will be worth 75 points while each comment is worth 12.5 points each. Please keep the following in mind:
You need to be evaluative. Thus, please do not say things like, “This essay is great!” “Good job!” “Yes, it has a thesis. . .” Such comments are not helpful.
Here are some things to comment on:
Clarity – What do you believe the topic of the essay is after reading the introduction and does the author clearly pick one side of the argument to advocate for?
Thesis – Tell your peer what sentence you believe is their thesis. Does it directly address the prompt? What suggestions can you offer?
Topic Sentence – Does the body paragraph have a topic sentence that relates to the thesis? What suggestions can you offer?
Quoting – Is there a direct quote as an example in the body paragraph? If so, is it correctly cited? If not, what suggestions can you offer?
Coherence—Does the essay read smoothly? Do you feel like the writer is trying to make it easy for you to follow and interesting for you to read? Is the writer “reader-friendly”? If not, what suggestions can you offer?
Content—Does the writer follow the directions of the assignment to the best of your understanding. Think of it this way—if you were way off the mark in your understanding of what to do, wouldn’t you want someone to let you know?
Readability—Do you understand all the sentences? Do they all make sense? Has the writer communicated clearly to you on a sentence level so that you’re not having to guess at what the writer meant? If not, what suggestions can you offer?
Some things to avoid—try not to nitpick—because it’s a publish, there will probably be little problems that the writer just hasn’t fixed yet. Be kind and sensitive in your comments; speak to your classmate the way you’d want to be spoken to. And don’t forget that we all need to know when we’ve done something well. Be sure to point out things that you admire about the publish.
