Weekly Discussion Board Posts
Discussion Board posting is an important part of the activities of LIT 1000 Internet. Generally, the more you participate (post), the better score you will get on the Discussion component of your grade. However, your postings must be substantive, as explained below.
By substantive, I mean that your Discussion Board post must have the following attributes:
· The post is complete–it makes sense and makes a point of some kind.
· The thought expressed is well-connected to the topic at hand.
· Always read the criteria for the weekly discussion.

· The writing demonstrates knowledge of the appropriate terminology and concepts for the topic.
· The writing is free of grammatical and spelling errors and is otherwise technically competent.
You are expected to actively participate in the Discussion Board assignments. This means you should log on to the Discussion Board a few times a week to see what is happening there. 
Weekly Discussions
Each Monday by 6:00 p.m. you will be posting three paragraphs for the two stories you are assigned to read each week. 

Note, a well-written objective paragraph consists of 9-12 sentences. You are not re-writing the story, but summarizing in your own words, without the usage of quotes or copying the story. No first or second person usage. 

The first two paragraphs are your well-written summaries of the two assigned stories for that week. The third paragraph consists of responding to my question or comment posted in the weekly discussion. Points will be deducted if the above criteria is not met.
The three paragraphs must be typed in the provided box, and not as an attachment. A zero grade will be earned if any discussion has an attachment. Again, three paragraphs are the format each week. The weekly three paragraphs are due on Monday by 6:00 p.m.
Once you have posted the three paragraphs, you will then have access to the class discussion. 
The first initial posting is graded, so be sure to include the three paragraph criteria, and proof for grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors.

“A Good Man is Hard to find “And The Lottery 1

“A Good Man is Hard to find” is a Flannery O’Connor short story. “A good man is hard to find,” says the story’s protagonist. Those unfamiliar with the author’s religious and philosophical beliefs may find it challenging to comprehend. A murderer and his gang tragically end a family vacation. Mysterious lost treasure leads the family away from the main path after a meddling Grandmother tries to persuade them to travel to Tennessee instead of Florida. It was the Misfit’s fault for making this fatal choice. The Grandmother is overly concerned with how others perceive her. When their car crashes in the woods, The Misfit, a wanted criminal, finds them. He also doesn’t think he’s a bad guy. Misfit and his two henchmen kill the entire family, including the Grandmother. There are three stages of thought for Grandma. She is entirely focused on herself and how others perceive her during the first phase. She enters the Second Phase when she speaks to The Misfit. The Misfit is the story’s quasi-final judgment. He does this by mimicking a mirror. Everything Grandma says flies off his back. He never indeed agrees or disagrees with her, and he kills her. She would have been a good woman,” The Misfit said in his final line. “Every minute,” she says. It’s possible O’Conner felt that way about most of us, or that if the Grandmother had been forced to live under duress, she would have gained self-awareness and compassion. He Grandmother’s final phase is redemption. She finally sees The Misfit as a person like her. He is not a product of his background. Like her, he is a simple human. Currently, she sees herself as others. She realizes she is not a product of her class. Society creates the class, and she fits in. She shows this by claiming The Misfit is one of her own.
In the story of the Lottery, Shirley Jackson’s “The Lottery” features two main characters: Tessie Hutchinson, a housewife who wins the lottery at the end, and Mr. Summers, the man who organizes the lottery. Mr. Summers has brought the black box with all the little white pieces of paper for the drawing, and he has called everyone up to pick them out. Tessie Hutchinson bemoans the unfairness of the lottery and claims that her husband didn’t have enough time to choose a piece of paper. All of the other characters in this story contribute to the plot by simply saying a few words and throwing stones at Tessie. The story starts with a description of the lovely day outside. Shirley Jackson tells the reader what time of day it is and what year the story takes place right away. On June 27, the day is set to ten o’clock in the morning, and the year is set to early summer. Every year on June 27, the lottery was held following tradition.
She also mentions that school has just recently ended for the summer break, implying that the season is early summer. The author does this to keep the reader’s
