STEP 1: Visit the TED Talks website and search for a talk on the subject matter of sexual deviance, dysfunction, or related disorders. Watch one of the talks that interests you, as long as it is a minimum of 8 minutes in length. At the top of your response, include the title of the TED Talk, the name of the presenter, when it was filmed, along with a link to the video.
- Give a summary of the TED talk, emphasizing the speaker’s main points
- What did you find most interesting about the talk, and what will you most likely remember from the talk?
- What type of data or evidence did the presenter show to back up their information?
- Look for terms or concepts from the course. Include at least two course-related terms or concepts in your response.
- What other questions would you have for this presenter if you could have a conversation with them? What else would you like to know about the topic?
STEP 2: Post your reply (in at least 250 words) in the discussion forum. Your response should include a clear stance on the issue with supporting evidence as to why you feel the way you do. Show that you can think critically on the topic by integrating your own thoughts, analysis, or experiences.
STEP 3: Respond in two separate posts to two classmates (in at least 75 words). Explicitly address their responses and try to extend, complicate, or redirect their points in a substantive, knowledge-demonstrating way.
