    For the week 3 discussion I wasn 't aware of the requirements of having to post three separate posts on three different days early in the week and ended up made all the posts in the same day. However, I have been able to make five posts throughout the day from 1:54 am to 10:36 pm. I made my stance clear on the first post that I made, "I believe that raising students ' self-esteem should not be the teachers ' responsibility" (week 3 discussion, May 29, 1:54am) and proceeded to argue for it. I referred to the textbook in some of my posts to support my ideas. For example, the quote "It is mentioned in the text that "the greatest increase in self-esteem come when students grow more competent in areas they value" (Woolfolk, Winne & Perry, p. 57. 2016)." (week 3 discussion, May 29, 1:54am) to support my claim that "teachers should encourage students to find ways to use their talents and let their unique characteristics shine through" (week 3 discussion, May 29, 1:54am). I responded to the posts of others by voicing out my concerns in regards to making raising self-esteem in students a mandatory responsibility for teachers, "I don 't think that giving out praises should become a mandatory part of a teacher 's job. A student 's self esteem shouldn 't be reliant on a teacher 's praises. Ultimately, students should learn to value their own works and efforts." (week 3 discussion, May 29, 2:27am). I raised questions to invoke further thoughts on the topic such as "How should we take each…

    Writing Life This sucks! That is what I would have said a couple of years ago. Writing has become more important to me in the last couple of years. When I was younger I would write here and there of just stories, but when it came to writing an assignment, I never wanted to do it. From when I was young to now I still have not written a lot. I tend to struggle to complete my own works, but when it came to school all I needed to do was research in order to write what I thought was a good paper. I…

    advance the cause of civilization (Siebert, Peterson, & Schramm, 1963). The libertarian concept argues that journalism is an economic enterprise and in addition to informing and entertaining the masses should create a situation where the media outlets are financially independent (Siebert, Peterson, & Schramm, 1963). Many newspapers, at all sizes, operate as big business enterprises that are impervious to any sense of social responsibility and are often unyielding to any level of public opinion…

A alternate name someone uses as an author is often called a “pen name”, an alias or a pseudonym. Authors use pen names so they can be published because for many possible reasons they wouldn’t be published under their own names. Many famous authors have used pen names because they wanted to be taken seriously or wanted to protect their name. For some people…

He insists that assistance with marketing is an important factor for writers to consider. Camacho illustrates this point by adding, “In direct publishing, authors rarely benefit from the book tours, book reviews, bookstore stands, and established-author…
