Ashford 3: – Week 2 – Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Theoretical Perspective Reflection
In Chapter 3, you were presented with four language acquisition theories: behaviorist, active construction of a grammar, connectionist, and social interaction theories. For this discussion, you will first select one of the theories and explain its main components in a graphic organizer. The recommended website, Holt Interactive Graphic Organizers, offers digital graphic organizers to help you with the creation of your graphic organizer, or you can use the graphs/charts feature in Microsoft Word. You will then compare and contrast your chosen theory with the other theories listed above, highlighting the major similarities and differences.
The graphic organizer you create for the theory you choose should include:
In your compare/contrast analysis of the theory, include the following:
Refer to Chapter 3 of the text, additional resources, and your own insights. Remember that your graphic organizer needs to contain an APA citation for any source used, including the textbook. Your discussion post title should be the same as your chosen theory. The body of your post should consist of your compare/contrast analysis.
Guided Response: After viewing several organizers, respond to at least two classmates who chose a different theory than you did. Further elaborate on the similarities and differences with your main theory of choice.
