Position Paper Research Study

Collaborative Position Paper (100 points / shared grade)
You and a partner will collaborate to write a shared 2,500-3,000 word position paper using Google Docs. You have the flexibility to select any topic of interest that is generated from your reading of Henry Jenkins’ paper “Confronting the Challenges of Participatory Culture: Media Education for the 21st Century.” Topic proposals are due by Week 3 and can be posted on the Position Paper Forum Topic on the Ning network. You will “turn in” your completed paper by sharing it with the members of the class on Google Docs and posting the published URL on the Position Paper Forum Topic no later than Week 7. Your position paper should refer back to Jenkins’ work and should also hyperlink to some outside media (blogs, podcasts, wikis, news, websites, etc.) to support your ideas. It can also reference some of the journal articles processed through your blog reflections.
