By Day 1 of the week, your instructor will post a discussion question. Respond to your instructor’s question and to your classmates’ responses. The goal of this discussion forum is to have a single conversation about the topic, not a series of 30 separate conversations. This means that every post should be in response to another post. Only start a new thread if you want to address a whole different theme within the topic, and only post after first carefully reading what others have written. Do not repeat what your classmates have already said, and do not ignore them if they ask you questions. Try to keep the conversation moving forward.
Attend discussion on at least four separate days, and post a total of 800 words. There is no required word count for individual posts as long as all your posts together total 800 words. Nor is there a minimum number of posts, but you must post on at least four separate days by Day 7.
Carefully review the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.
Responses are listed below in the following order: response, author and the date and time the response is posted.

Week 4 Discussion
6/3/2016 1:39:04 PM
Discussion: Compare the literary description of the holocaust in Elie Wiesel’s Night with the cinematic portrayal of similar events in Steven Spielberg’s Schindler’s List. Is literature or cinema more powerful in depicting the holocaust? Why? Cite specific scenes from the film and specific lines from the reading to support your claims. How do you think filmmaker Claude Lanzmann would answer this question? Why? What do you think Lanzmann would say about Wiesel’s book? Once you have a clear understanding of the issues about holocaust remembrance, you may want to apply the same reasoning to history in general. Is the holocaust unique in its ethics of remembrance, or does the same reasoning apply to all history? Is literature or cinema a more appropriate tool for depicting historical narratives?
Discussion for Week 4. Initial post of 350-400 words due Thursday, day 3, and at least three responses that will comprise another 400 words to total 800 words. That means each response to a peer needs to be a minimum of a paragraph to meet this requirement. You must post on four different days, which is a post a day. In your initial post, thread it as a response to my post. In addition, use textual evidence with proper citations whether from the textbook, articles, or novels.
