Entering Conversations about Media In this essay, you are practising entering conversations. This means a number of things. First, you must identify a conversation you want to enter. Because our general topic is media, this should be a conversation concerning some aspect of media – TV, movies, music, gaming, social media. Once you’ve identified a conversation you want to enter, you’ll need to find out what others are saying about it. This means doing some research. Right now we’re not worrying about scholarly journals, so your research can be done online. BUT always keep in mind that you need to find reliable sources – don’t forget about the CRAAP test! Once you’ve identified your issue, gotten a lay of the land and seen what other people are saying, you can start planning your own contribution. What do you want to say about this topic? This will be your thesis.For this paper, the They Say, I Say book will be particularly useful. You will need to summarize the positions of the people you are responding to and craft your own response. The They Say, I Say book gives you great templates and ideas for how to do this. Because this paper requires research, you will also be responsible for integrating your sources and providing documentation. Successful papers will:• Have a clear thesis statement that indicates the author’s contribution to the conversation.• Introduce the reader to the author’s chosen text through the summary.• Clearly indicate the conversation that has been happening concerning their topic.• Respond successfully to this conversation, indicating their own contributions.• Successfully integrate secondary material through direct quotes, summary, or paraphrase.• Distinguish between reliable and unreliable sources.• Successfully cite secondary material.• Provide a correctly formatted Works Cited page.Paper Requirements: • 750-1,000 words.• AT LEAST 2 secondary sources.• Works Cited page.•MLA Formatting (see the Purdue Owl for extra guidance on MLA formatting) https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/mla_style/mla_formatting_and_style_guide/mla_formatting_and_style_guide.htmlThis is a formal paper. Therefore, you should avoid using I, contractions, and colloquial language. This is going to be difficult because a lot of you will be discussing a topic you are interested in or a piece of media you like. So keep this in mind.
