Step 1: Complete reading or viewing all assigned materials
Step 2: Respond to both of the following prompts:
Prompt 1- (Referring to Del Toro and Hogan’s article https://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/31/opinion/31deltoro.html) Compare vampires to any another “monster” that is widely represented in popular culture. How does the other “monster” emphasize what is mortal or eternal in us?
Prompt 2- (Referring to Laird’s article) Play devil’s advocate. Choose one of Laird’s emboldened grievances and construct a counterargument.
Step 3: Reply to at least two of your classmates. Don’t simply say “I agree” or any derivative of that response. Engage in thought-provoking discussion. Why do you agree with your peer? In what ways do you disagree? What factors did your peer not address? These are just a few questions to help guide you in writing SUBSTANTIVE replies to your peers.
