Video Discussion: Faith & the Public Square

First, watch the 1-hour documentary video, Soul of a Nation (Links to an external site.), in its entirety. (This is the fifth of 6 episodes in the PBS Frontline series, God in America (Links to an external site.).)

Second, post your carefully considered response to the following prompt in a paragraph of at least 6  sentences:

This video portrays the efforts of both Christian church leaders and politicians to “marry” faith and democracyin a nation that values the separation of church and state. As Christians, we believe that faith touches all aspects of life, public and private, and as Americans, we believe that the state should not define the church (nor vice versa), in order to protect both.

Consider a person or event from this video and describe how, in your view, they/it either did or did not maintain a healthy balance between Christian faith and political endeavors. Use specific details from the video as evidence of your position.

Finally, thoughtfully read and engage at least 2 of your colleagues’ responses with a substantive reply of at least 4 sentences each. Each reply needs to answer this question: Do you agree with your colleague’s assessment of the person or event they chose? If you do agree, provide additional specific evidence that further supports their assessment from the video and/or readings. If you do not agree, charitably explain why you differ and support your own view with specific evidence from the video and/or readings.

Dramatic Literature class- Othello and Medea essay- EASY!!

Hello,
This is rather simple. Please follow the directions below. The professor is a easy grader. It does not need to be too complex. Can be 1-2 pages depending on the amount of paragraphs for the answer of the question.

**** SCRIPTS ARE ATTACHED, ONLY GO BY THE SCRIPTS*****

Choose ONE question to answer from EACH of the two groups. You will answer one question about MEDEA and one question about OTHELLO. Write it in essay format. For example, you’ll want to make it clear which play you are referencing and introduce the topic before jumping right into your answer.

MEDEA: Choose ONE of these and write 1-3 paragraphs to answer . You can quote from the test if you want

1) Usually the protagonist has a ‘tragic flaw’ that leads to his or her own destruction, but in MEDEA, it is Jason (the Antagonist) who has personality flaws that lead to his destruction. Discuss the mistakes he makes in the play that lead Medea to destroy him and all he loves.

2) Is Medea a sympathetic character? Does she remain sympathetic the whole play,, or is there a point at which you stopped being on her side?

Does Iago really care about Emilia,or is there another reason why he would get revenge for this? What other moments in the play suggest that rumor might be true?

2) What is the importance of the Handkerchief, and how does Iago use it as a prop to further destroy Othello?

Looking Backward

Imagine that we are in the future: the year is 2070. Around the world, much attention is focused on the 50 years since the pandemic of 2020. It is also the year you have decided to retire. An architecture student has contacted you as part of their professional practice class to ask you to reflect on the last 50 years. Remembering that you were once in Pro Practice, in about 3000 words you survey the architectural, technological, social, and cultural changes and how they affected your practice.

Your submission for the final can take the form of the transcript of a hypothetical interview, an actual interviewwritten or on video–that you do with a classmate, a single narrative essay, or a short story, similar to The Machine Stops.

While this is clearly speculative, whatever changes, inventions, and innovations you describe should have some grounding in reality. For example, if you think well be in flying cars, be sure to research the state of that technology. Because you will need to do some research to predict the future, you should be sure to cite your sources.

For some inspiration and a sense of temporal symmetry, look back 50 years to 1970. Look for thru-lines and surprises.

Proposal laying out how you intend to approach the assignment, i.e., media, method, and at least three sources or references you plan to use
