How important is that belief to you?

To help us think about and understand beliefs, we’ll work with a radio series most recently published by National Public Radio (NPR) called “This I Believe.” The series originally ran in the 1950s, and NPR picked it up from 2005-2016. Each “This I Believe” segment is approximately five minutes long, and expresses a belief. Some featured people are celebrities; others are not.
Choose one audio “essay” to listen to at the This I BelieveLinks to an external site. website. Take your time to click through different years and months to select an essay that appeals to your personal interests.
Listen to the essay. (Note: You may need to listen to more than one to find one that appeals to you.)
In a post to the discussion board, briefly summarize the contents of the audio essay in a few sentences, explain why you chose that essay, and react to the core belief expressed in the essay. Create three separate paragraphs for the three subtopics. Your post as a whole should be 250-400 words in length.
For the summary, keep your discussion to a single, brief paragraph. Who was the speaker, what was the core belief discussed, and what details seem important to you?
For the explanation, please explain why you chose that essay to discuss. Tie the contents of the audio essay to your own ideas and experiences. You do not need to get super personal here if you don’t want to, but make sure to use a few details to explain why the contents spoke to you in some way.
For the reaction, express whether you agree or disagree with the core belief expressed in the essay. How important is that belief to you? Why? What seemed especially important or “true” (or insignificant/false) to you within the essay?
Respond to two classmates’ posts. If you agree with your classmates’ conclusions, try to add on to their points with new information. If you disagree with your classmates’ conclusions, try to explain where more information is needed; where information contradicts itself; or where a different point of view might make more sense.
