Your discussion board post should be about 250 words in length and include a brief summary of the readings along with an analysis of the texts and an attempt to apply the reading to the studentâ€™s life. These entries present an opportunity to engage with the content of the reading but also to experiment with oneâ€™s writing. Entries will be evaluated by 1) timely submission, 2) evidence of reading completion, 3) attempt for an application, and 4) attempt for analysis of reading.

Articles you can chose:
Context: The assigned readings in this module drew your attention to what students have been writing about their experiences. Now, I’d like you to turn your attention to how your community (e.g. country, city, town, college) is writing about their collective experience. Try focusing on the positive since it will be easy to find negative comments. The purpose here is for you to reflect on how your community is writing history through newspapers, blogs, magazines, government announcements, town publications, etc.
The task: Find two sources that reflect how your community is writing about their experience in the present. Summarize it for us, explain what their focus is, and critique whether or not you think they are doing a good job at writing history. The post should be 250 words and include citations (and links) to the sources.
