Can someone explain my exam question to me? I know what it means, just wanting to be on the safe side! “Analyse and assess the role of some English-language media in international society”

Best answer:

Answer by lamus_maser
This is asking you to look at what effects English based media has on the world. Since this is an exam, it will want a few paragraphs to an entire essay, so make sure you make several points of claim, and defend them well.

PostHeaderIcon What makes a drawing “good” in your eyes?

Question by sim: What makes a drawing “good” in your eyes?
What makes you stand in front of a drawing for a few more seconds instead of walking on by. I am putting up my first drawing (the medium will be pencil) for a show, and I am a novice in it and am quite lost. But I am going to do my best. I just want it to be something worth being there. It’s going to be a learning experience creating it. So what makes a piece good in your eyes? What are those qualities in that artwork if you could separate them?

Best answer:

Answer by Karra B
To me, for a drawing to be good, I like to see harmony, balance and theme. I, personally, do not
enjoy blobs on canvas. lol. I like to see and recognize the theme, then balance and harmony to me are very important. They make the picture worth viewing.

PostHeaderIcon Q&A: What is a good idea for my Senior Project?

Question by dREAM™: What is a good idea for my Senior Project?
I did my Junior Paper on the effects that media has on young people in the United States. I wrote about the negative effects of media on them. I kind of want to create a project that shows how media can have good effects, or how it should change so it would have good effects instead of negative ones, so I was thinking about doing a “good media” magazine… but I have no idea how I’d go about it…

Best answer:

Answer by layla
I think one of the ways you can go about this is to talk about how people today are using the media, instead of just consuming it and having it effect them.

I think the days of just sitting on a couch in front of the television consuming media are slowly evaporating, although probably slower in the United States where people are more dependent and trusting of their media. But all around the world people are looking for new ways to read and create news.

Find out about the change in trends in media. What does media mean today and how are we utilizing it? A good focus would be social media, and the powerful machine it has become all around the world, and a way for people to campaign, revolt and get their stories out fast. This is a “positive” effect (although in my opinion positive and negative is subjective so I wouldn’t make it so black and whilte)

You can also include how social media has made communication between businesses and their customers a lot easier, faster and efficient, which means the consumer can get his issues resolved much faster, and this is great for business. The majority of businesses today have Facebook and twitter accounts. In some parts of the world some businesses are run solely through Social media, where people display their goods on Facebook directly to their customers, getting instant feedback and suggestions.

I hope this helps. I also suggest searching through Google Scholar for studies done on this as they will definitely contain valuable ideas on how to approach this subject.

PostHeaderIcon Is this a good thesis for an argumentative essay or is it too broad?

Question by Lisa M: Is this a good thesis for an argumentative essay or is it too broad?
My original thesis was:

“The media’s perception of the ideal body has harmful effects on people, young and old, and can lead to eating disorders.”

My professor (this is for Eng Comp II in college) said this was too broad and also didn’t showcase my opinion or side of the argument.

Here’s my revised thesis that I plan on sending in today:

“Magazine advertisements and social media websites’ perception of the ideal body has harmful effects on teens and can lead to eating disorders.”

Is that still to broad? Could I narrow it down to something like how Pro Ana/Mia sites outright promote eating disorders?

Best answer:

Answer by Jules
Yeah. Narrowing it down to Pro Ana/Mia might be better.

Do people even still read magazines anymore? I know I don’t. I just go on tumblr and pinterest.

There are a lot of articles on pro ana tumblrs. Last year, tumblr changed its terms and conditions so they could help get rid of pro ana tumblr. it only made a fraction of a dent though because tumblr is so free and there is no way they could get rid of them. It didn’t help in my opinion. But this way it shows that they do not promote people to make pro ana tumblrs.

There are also a lot of videos on youtube that have huge views.

You could also use quotes from tumblr and comments and quotes from youtube to support your case.
