TOPIC for DISCUSSION: READING & WRITING in TODAY’S WORLD
The way most of us read and write today is fundamentally different from the way most people read and wrote 15 to 20 years ago....
1) What do you think about these changes &
2) What do you think about writing in general and about the role writing in any form (from text messages, graffiti, and ads to research papers, news reports, novels and movie scripts) plays in today’s world?
I have selected some YouTube clips about writing and related topics that I find interesting. Please have a look at them and, if you wish, integrate them in your discussion.
Feel also free to lead us to other YouTube clips or websites about writing that you find interesting.
Please note: you are welcome to comment about that topic in any genre you wish (from “normal“ blog entries or comments to poems, manga or video clips). You are also welcome, of course, to respond to any comments or post someone else has made. Last but not least, you are also very welcome to comment more than once, if you wish.
I hope you will enjoy sharing your ideas with the rest of us about this topic!
