assignment online discussion 4 ch 5

Online Discussion 4/ Directions: Please use your textbook to answer both discussion questions. You are required to solely use your textbook, Chapter 5 (Postcolonial Blues) to answer the questions. No other outside sources are required to answer the questions. The more details and analysis you use to write your responses, the more points you will likely get. You are graded on the originality of your response, the depth you address from the textbook, and critical thinking you bring to the discussion. Be sure responses are in your own words, and your own work.

Do not forget:

Please include at least 4 key terms from the chapter to answer the questions. Be sure italicize, underline, and put your key terms in bold. Originality is important, and I implore you not to copy the text verbatim from the text. If you do, please be sure to cite the source and page number from the textbook. Please have a look at the Online Discussion Sample I shared in Pages.Your response should be at least 300-400 words (it’s okay to go over the word limit). Please remember to have a look at the Online Discussion sample as how to cite your work. Responses with NO citation/references to the textbook will get a zero for that assignment.
