I don’t understand this English question and need help to study.
Thoroughly read and respond to the prompt below after watching McWhorter’s “Txtng Is Killing Language. JK!!!” and reading Williams’ “Multilingual Literacy Strategies in Online Worlds” by Tuesday, June 23rd. Your discussion post should be 300-400 words long. By Thursday, June 25th, respond to THREE of your peers’ discussion questions in responses of 200 words or more. Don’t worry about grammar in these posts: they’re informal and just a way for us to discuss the readings together without regular live meetings!
What is the point of McWhorter’s talk? Do you agree with McWhorter’s claim that texting is more like speaking than writing? Why or why not? How does Williams’ article participate in a broader conversation about language, technology, writing, and literacies?
If you’d like, you may also spend some time in your post making connections between the Williams reading, the McWhorter video, and the Bronson article.
At the end of your post, pose ONE or TWO discussion questions about the reading or about your own post’s contents to the class. You will then be responsible for replying to THREE OR MORE of your classmates’ questions by Wednesday.
