This week will continue watching videos attached to our unit on Social Media and Activism. Watch the TED Talk. After you have watched the TED Talk, answer the following questions in reply.
Here is a transcript of the TED Talk if you need to follow along or use it when you are working on your answers to the discussion questions:
- What is the speaker’s main argument? Or what is her thesis? How did she come to argue this claim? What evidence led her to her conclusions?
- Name at least 3 specific examples/pieces of evidence she uses to support her argument?
- What was the biggest takeaway that you had from this video? What interested you the most?
- Who is the intended audience of her talk? What is her purpose?
- What is her tone? How does she sound when she talks? Is her tone successful in reaching her audience?
