Unit IV Scholarly Activity

One of the best ways to recognize the extent of a norm is to break it. In this assignment, you must break a norm. This breach must be done in a public forum. You will be writing an essay about your experiment, in which you must be sure to answer all of the questions listed in this assignment.

Begin by choosing which type of norm you want to break. You may break a norm that results in a negative sanction (for example, ridicule, or exclusion). On the other hand, you may also break a norm that results in a positive sanction (extra attention, thanks, etc.).

1. Is it a formal norm or an informal one? 2. What reactions by others do you expect? 3. If published, might these reactions affect your life chances? 4. How do you think you will feel after the reactions?

Break the norm. Once you have broken the norm, note the reactions of others.

1. What are the reactions of others? 2. How did the reactions affect you? 3. How do these reactions strengthen the norm? 4. What did you learn about yourself in the breaching of the norm?

NOTES:

1. Do NOT break a norm that has anything to do with your instructor or any CSU connection. 2. Do NOT break the law!

Unit IV Scholarly Activity

With the times quickly changing, and the recent division among those who support the Federalists and Anti-Federalists, public rallies in the town center have become a common thing.

 

For the next rally, you have been asked to give a speech regarding the side you support. After choosing which side to support, use the PowerPoint reading from this unit to choose a minimum of four of the six bullets from slide two titled, “Quick Comparison,” as the basis for your speech. Using these four bullets you have selected summarize how this political divide would evolve into the two-party system.

 

 

 

 

By choosing this option, you will write out your speech in essay form. Be sure to address the four bullet points you selected from the PowerPoint within the essay for your speech.

Your speech must be a minimum of two (2) pages. A minimum of two (2) reputable sources must be used, cited, and referenced, only one of which can come from the required reading section. This means you will need to find at least one additional source on your own. Inappropriate resources, or failure to use resources available in CSU’s online library can lead to deductions (and loss of your news audience).
