Rousseauâ€”Homework for Thursday
Typed: Times New Roman font
Length: as long as it takes, but certainly more than one, typed page. Staple multiple pages together.
It will make my life easier if you run your assignment through Grammerly.com to proofread and make corrections. Here is a link to a free site sponsored by our university. Itâ€™s Grammerly Premium, which is the good stuff: https://my.troy.edu/online/academic-services.html. The link to Grammerly is at the bottom of the window. Hey, use it for all your written assignments.
Submit the homework in the box outside my door (Rm 247) by Thursday 5 p.m.
The game plan:
Rousseau writes, â€œMan is born free, and everywhere he is in chains.â€ He believes that educationâ€™s job is to develop the character and moral sense of children, rather than simply imparting information and concepts.
Rousseau wrote that children should learn right and wrong through experiencing the consequences of their actions, rather than through punishment.
You will write one essay involving two consequences of your actions: one consequence will have a negative outcome (remember, you will not have been â€œpunishedâ€ as a consequenceâ€”you will have LEARNED); the other consequence will have been positive (again, you will not have been â€œrewardedâ€ with a candy bar for your actions, but you will have LEARNED something about the Golden Rule).
Use all those skills that my colleagues and I taught you in Comp 1 & 2. I particularly like description, setting, and dialogue.
