I’m stuck on a Writing question and need an explanation.
Your corresponding short writing assignment for Week 3 needs to put different sections of the documentary in conversation with your opinion about whether America is a language community.
Your central claim (thesis) must respond to the question: ‘Is America a language community?’ The sections you choose (1 per episode) are evidence for claims you make about language use in America.
Instructions: Watch all 3 episodes of ‘Do You Speak American’. Take notes that help you form an opinion about whether America is a language community.
Requirements: Your submission (300-400 words) must have a thesis that responds to ‘Is America a language community?’ Evidence to support your thesis needs to come from your assigned section/episode, as well as 2 other episodes.
My Assigned episode to watch is part 2!
