Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Discussion 2

Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Discussion 2

 

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

 

Rites   of Passage

A rite of passage is a ritual that helps mark a person’s transition from one status to another. All cultures have rites of passage to mark these important transitions. With that in mind, choose a rite of passage either from the textbook or from your own research. What is the function of this rite within the particular society?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from the required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7. In your responses to your peers, compare their example to other rites of passage in your own culture.
The Ashford Writing Center (AWC) has two kinds of tutoring available to you.

  • Live Chat –      If you have writing-related questions about a topic before you draft a      discussion post or submit a written assignment, you will now be able to      chat live with a tutor for a short (up to 20 minute) conversation. Live      Chat will be available Monday through Friday from 10:00-11:00 am and      4:00-5:00 pm (PST). AWC Live Chat
  • Email Paper Review –      If you have a draft, partial draft, or even if you’re having trouble      getting started, you can complete a submission form and email your paper      to the AWC for review.
  • Writing Tutors will do their best to return your paper       with their comments within 48 hours, not including Saturdays and Sundays.       Please plan accordingly if you would like to receive feedback before an       assignment due date. AWC Email Paper       Review
