Oral storytelling is a rich tradition that has existed for centuries. For people

Oral storytelling is a rich tradition that has existed for centuries. For people who did not know how to read or write, oral storytelling was a way to pass down information from generation to generation. These stories varied in purpose ranging from entertainment to teaching about culture and history. Oral stories about history, genealogy, battles, and political uprisings of a community could last hours or days. Oral traditions provide a moral compass from which social and human interactions gain direction. Fables, folktales, legends, and myths are all part of that oral tradition. Each of these types of oral stories has distinguishing properties to help identify them. For example, a fable is defined as a short story, not founded on fact, used to teach a lesson or moral, often using animals or inanimate objects as the characters.
The importance of the parables can hardly be overestimated. They comprise a substantial part of the recorded preaching of Jesus. The parables are generally regarded by scholars as among the sayings which we can confidently ascribe to the historical Jesus; they are, for the most part, authentic words of Jesus. Moreover, all of the great themes of Jesus’ preaching are struck in the parables. Perhaps no part of the Gospels, then, can better put us into touch with the mind of Jesus Christ than the parables. They still today present us with the challenge with which Jesus encountered his hearers in first-century Palestine. These little stories (together with the Lord’s Prayer and the Beatitudes) are the best known of all Jesus’ words. It is a measure of the value that Christian Churches place upon them..
Answer the prompt below:
Parables and fables have been around for ages, but their purposes have stayed the same. They are used in a didactic sense: storytelling is meant to teach a lesson. Only the medium has changed. While both started out as oral traditions, they have since been added to our literature. Today, most of them are used to help teach still-developing children morals and ethics that society holds valuable. Which would use you to teach morality and ethics, Fables or Parables, and why?

Watch the entire video clip on the ballet The Green Table by choreographer Kurt Jooss.
You will be writing a three paragraph critique on the ballet The Green Table which is also subtitled “A Dance of Death in Eight Scenes” which includes The Gentlemen in Black, The Farewells, The Battle, The Refugees, The Partisan, The Brothel, The Aftermath and then the return of The Gentlemen in Black. Use only these titles and if you are not sure what the word in the title means, look it up. Do not research this ballet, your critique should be formed by the movements in the ballet and what we have learned in class. No need for time stamps in this situation, instead, use vivid descriptions of the movements in each section to support your analysis. Heavy/intellectual analysis without the descriptions showing evidence of viewing the ballet will not be given credit so be sure to describe the ballet to the reader. Papers are checked for Plagiarism, AI, Chat and must sound human and be well described.
The first paragraph: Introduction-This paragraph should introduce the ballet (key players) and state what you feel the choreographer was trying to communicate. Three to five sentences will suffice.
The second paragraph should describe the first 4 sections including the name of the section, vivid descriptions of the dance (and dancer’s movements and facial expressions/emotions) followed by your analysis of each section (two to three sentences per section is sufficient.)
The third paragraph should describe the last 4 sections including the name of the section, vivid descriptions of the dance (and dancer’s movements and facial expressions/emotions) followed by your analysis of each section (again two to three sentences per section is sufficient.)
In addition, include in the paper (you may decide where but do not exceed the three paragraphs) the choreographer’s use of the skeleton character and what you think he represents as well as the top hat character in the white shirt and black pants and what he represents in the ballet. Both characters weave in and out of the ballet.
Include a short one or two sentence conclusion at the end of the third paragraph and proofread your paper for proper grammar, punctuation, capitalization and spelling. Make sure you have reviewed the power point and read the article on writing critiques as well as the module on the key players in one of our first modules before you write your paper. You may also want to review comments from myself on your writing in the discussion posts for optimal success.
I have also provided time stamps for the different sections of the ballet to help with your critique. The titles are also available in the prompt above and go in order:
Start times:
Gentlemen in Black 0:00
The Farewells-5:35
The Battle-9:54
The Refugees- 14:34
The Partisan-19:48
The Brothel- 22:52
The Aftermath-27 min mark
Gentlemen in Black 33:42

Identify and research an individual who is successful (one who has achieved mas

Identify and research an individual who is successful (one who has achieved mas

Identify and research an individual who is successful (one who has achieved mastery, not just fleeting fame) in a particular field. In your discussion of this successful person you will decide which principles Gladwell talks about impacted that outlier’s success:
1a. The Matthew Effect–hidden advantages/extraordinary opportunities (Chapter 1)
1b. The Matthew Effect–accumulated advantages (Chapter 1)
2. 10,000 hours of meaningful work in order to become a master/expert in one’s field (Chapter 2)
3. Advantageous era of birth–right age at the right time (Chapter 2 and 5)
4. The ability to express to someone what one wants & being heard – “practical intelligence” (Chapter 4 P. 101-108)
5. Born in a demographic trough- not a lot of people so more opportunities for success (Chapter 5)
6. Exposure to meaningful work- autonomy, complexity, and effort/reward (Chapter 5)
7. Cultural practices which encouraged success- support from family/mentors encourage success (Chapters 6-9)
Your thesis should be a statement that clearly develops which of Gladwell’s principles apply to this person. There will be more than one category that applies. MLA documentation should be used for all researched sources. A potential paper will look like this:
I. Intro: Using some sort of introductory element [fact, statistic, question(s), anecdote, etc.] introduce your successful person. In the thesis, state which of Gladwell’s principles for success apply to your outlier.
II. Body paragraphs. Support your position using at least THREE different principles from the other side of this paper – TATE / ATE your paragraphs in the following way:
T- Identify and define Gladwell’s principle you are applying to your Outlier.
A- Tie Gladwell’s principle to your outlier in a clear and specific way.
T- Use TEXT EVIDENCE from Outliers to provide support for your assertion and definition of the principle.
E- Elaborate on how your research proves Gladwell’s principle for your outlier
A- Make a claim about how your Outlier demonstrates this Gladwell principle in a clear and specific way.
T- Use OUTSIDE RESEARCH TEXTUAL SUPPORT to provide support for your assertion.
E- Elaborate on how your research proves Gladwell’s principle applies to your outlier.
III. Conclusion. Wrap up your paper by restating your thesis and reviewing your paper’s purpose. End with a “clincher” statement that drives your point home about how your Outlier achieved success due to these principles.
IV. Works Cited. Use the Purdue OWL website or other online source to create an MLA Format Works Cited Page.
Citation for book: Gladwell, Malcolm. Outliers: The Story of Success. Back Bay Books/Little, Brown, 2009.
Multimedia Presentation Requirements: Your presentation will cover the content of your paper including the way he/she has achieved success in his/her field (utilizing Gladwell’s principles for success), and a conclusion that includes how either society or yourself could improve going forward to achieve success.
