This weeks material: Orlowski-Yang, J. (Director). (2020). The Social Dilemma [Film]. Netflix. *You will need a Netflix account to access this film.
(200-225 (MAX 225) words not including, citations, quotations, or bibliography): Each week, you will post one Response Journal reflection based upon that week’s content to your assigned discussion board. The Response Journal is an invitation to comment upon what you are reading/viewing in the course, and then to relate this understanding to something within the contemporary cultural moment that is relevant to the study of CMNS. You could consider things like: What is the big idea in the reading(s)/material this week? How does this idea relate to something that you have seen/viewed in the present (or historical) media/communication landscape? Does the material challenge any assumptions that you have? Why do you think the writers are choosing to communicate in this particular way? Who is the audience? How do some of the communication ideas/theories we discuss in the course relate to, or help us to contextualize, their approach? What dominant ideas does the material for the week challenge, or reaffirm? Your response must include AT LEAST 2 quotations in APA 7 (appropriately cited) from the course material. Your response should not simply chronologically re-tell what occurs in the weekly material, but rather critically analyze/engage with one or two key arguments or examples from the course. Writing and critical thinking skills will be considered a primary factor in grading.
Key questions for this week’s class:
What is communication for? Why is communication so important?
How to approach the content of this week’s material:
Communications is a vast and encompassing field of study that covers everything from technology and culture, to identity and social change, to media history and applied media techniques. In our own lives, we are all intimately familiar with both communication technologies and practices of communication. Accordingly, there are numerous ways and spaces for us to explore communication as it relates to our lived experiences and the communicative and symbolic world around us. As such, we begin our course by situating ourselves at the centre of several current debates regarding communication and the current pace of communications change. For this first week’s ‘reading’ we will watch the film, The Social Dilemma (2020). It is a widely viewed Netflix documentary that covers a wide array of critiques, concerns, and observations about social media. The films tagline “The technology that connects us also controls us” suggest something ominous about social media and makes several claims about what you – the participatory audience – can do, and why you should care. As you watch the film, take a few notes about the tone, the mood, and the claims the producers make about communication, in particular the algorithmic architectures the films characters identify (engagement, growth and advertisement).
Consider some of the following questions: According to the film, what is communication for? Why is communication so important? What role does the audience play, if any? What do you make of the language, or metaphors in the film (for example the use of the term addiction)? Are there any recurring themes? How does the film make you feel? How does this relate to your own experiences? Where do you see social media going from here?

Word count: 500-600 words Book: The Female Man by Joanna Russ 1. Write out a sum

Word count: 500-600 words
Book: The Female Man by Joanna Russ
1. Write out a summary of the reading for today to demonstrate that you have carefully completed the reading (Part 9)
2. Write out a full main point or body paragraph to discuss a quote about “Whileaway” that relates to a main topic in the book.
3. Write out a separate main point/full paragraph (or two paragraphs) for one of your main points using two separate quotes. This main point should connect two separate quotes from two different pages of the book. The idea here is that one of your main points should look to connect different parts of the text where you noticed an interesting overlap. Keep in mind, this still needs to be one of the main points for your essay, which means it should be about a sub-topic related to your main topic and it should help you to prove your argument. Keep in mind this should be a full draft of one of your main points for the essay in paragraph format. It should not be just an outline. ***Make sure this is separate from your paragraph from above***
Use the following outline to help you structure and organize this main point:
Context that sets up the main point or the sub-topic of the paragraph and connects the main point to the larger discussion in some way.
Context that sets up a primary quote. Give the reader enough information about what is going on in the book during the section you’re going to be discussing.
Include an actual quote that connects clearly to your topic and helps you prove your argument. Remember that the quote needs to follow the guidelines laid out in the project description. If you find a good quote to analyze and close read, your job as a writer will be so much easier. Put the time in to find a strong quote.
Offer further analysis that explains to the reader how the quote relates to the topic. To do this you should be able to connect the quote and your discussion to larger themes and ideas present in the book.
Include a second quote that is related to the first quote, but isn’t too obvious in it’s connection.
Offer further analysis for why reading the two quotes together helps you to understand something new about the first (primary) quote, and explain how reading the quotes together helps you to prove your central argument.

Length: 3 pages total, double-spaced [title page/references page do not count]
50 points total: 30 points for on-time submission
10 points for comparing and analyzing “Thank You, M’am” and “Borders”

Prompt:
“After a while she said, ‘I were young once and I wanted things I could not get.’”
Langston Hughes, “Thank You, Ma’am”
“‘Citizenship?’
“‘Blackfoot,’ my mother told him.
“‘Ma’am?’
“‘Blackfoot,’ my mother repeated.
“‘Canadian?’
“‘Blackfoot.’”
Thomas King, “Borders”
(Compare the two passages and add analysis. The top 2 quotes are from the passages, one from each. Use those are one of the comparisons. Use other examples throughout the passages and compare them.)
Analysis:
The characters in both “Thank You, M’am” and “Borders” are all defying the law, in one form or another. Consider the characters’ actions in the context of the story and how the two authors decided to portray them. Compare these actions and writing techniques between the two stories. Use specific quotes to support your ideas.
Suggested approaches: Consider how the characters are described, physically and personality-wise. How do they fit our ideas about who “bad people” are? How do they not?
Do you think that the crimes they are committing are bad? Good? Neutral? Why? Why do you think the authors decided to choose these particular crimes?
There are named characters in these stories who have actions, and there are also unseen characters and forces that are acting on the story. What are some of these unseen forces? How are they affecting the story?
Any other approach that interests you and compares both stories’ narratives and their writing style
