I. TELL YOUR STORY: Use the definitions in the Rockwood Handout on Sources of Power to tell the story of power in your own life. Please discuss at least 6 sources of power in your paper, and use examples from your own life to help explain each source of power.
II. POWER OF MEDIA: Media has a special role in our lives and in society
. Explain the power of media in your own life, using examples to tell this part of your story. Please address ALL of the following questions in your paper: a. Sources of power: What sources of power have you used in your life?
What sources of power have you seen others use? Give examples from your own experience for each source of power you discuss. Also, for each source of power you’ve discussed, explain the way power was used in that particular circumstance. Are these sources of power used coercively (power over others), cooperatively (power with others) or individually (power within)? Why? Are they a combination, depending on the circumstance?” b. Media and Power in your Life: What power does media have in your life? What do Chomsky and Shirky say about the power of the media? Do you agree with Chomsky or Shirky – does the media have “power over” you or does it “empower” you and others around you? Use specific examples to explain the type of power that media has in your life, especially new forms of media (based on your own experience)
