Throughout the course, you will engage in Discussions with classmates to share reflections on the concepts of each unit. The Discussions will also give you the opportunity to learn from the interpretations and perspectives of your classmates. This course itself will be a study in different social, political, and cultural influences, as the class is made up of individuals with varying views of the world. The Discussions will give you an opportunity to express your point of view. Be sure to write carefully and respond to classmates respectfully.
To make the most out of your learning experience and earn a good Discussion grade, you must answer the Discussion question and then respond substantially to at least two classmatesâ€™ postings for each unit Discussion. You should write at least 200 words in the original post; then you should post with content and detail on the posts to your peers. Aim for at least four sentences in each post to your peers, building the Discussion with references to the Reading, application in your life, or other information to help share your perspective. With the original reply and two posts to your peers, this means you will post three times to each Discussion Board. You will want to use APA format with in-text and full end reference for citation of sources, which can help to give credit to the research you used and also to distinguish between your ideas and the sources.
Read the assigned article about the founder of the Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal AtatÃ¼rk. He undertook many changes to establish a secular state, such as changing the alphabet to Latin letters instead of Arabic script, ending the rule of Islamic law, and permitting divorce. â€œIn 1934, the [Turkish people] were required by law to take last namesâ€ (Lawlor, 1996). This final idea can be hard to imagine, but it can also show the importance of names and naming. One may wonder how families would decide. As a result, many Turkish last names have meanings, such as YÄ±ldÄ±z (star), BerberoÄŸlu (son of a barber) or Korkmaz (fearless).
First, why do you think last names may have been an important part of â€œmodernizingâ€ the Turkish Republic?
Next, talk about your own name. Does your name have a meaning? What are some of the historical or familial reasons for your first and last name? Do you have a nickname or preferred titles at work or in your community?
How can names communicate ideas about traditions, values, and beliefs?
