In other posts, I have provided a quick video introduction to the topic, and have discussed the ideas behind discourse theorythe main questions that students and researchers will likely ask as they set up their discourse analysis projectand the things that are worth keeping in mind when working with East Asian language sources. In this post, I offer a handy set of tools for doing a text-based, qualitative discourse analysis. You can go through the whole list of work-steps and tick each item off in turn, which is a good way to practice these methods.
The importance of developing a Diet Analysis is for students to recognize the importance of healthy eating and the benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In addition to exploring the positive side of maintaining a healthy lifestyle, I will also educate my students about the consequences of unhealthy eating habits and lack of physical activity.
Students will learn about the six major food groups, proper caloric intake, the benefits of regular exercise, and the importance of an annual medical checkup.
The use of different types of technologies that can aide in accomplishing their goals will also be explored. These include navigating the web to collect pertinent data with regard to the subject matter, the use of cardiovascular machines, the use of a scale to measure current weight and body fat, and the use of a digital camera, to capture their progress as they move forward.
To design a complete Diet Analysis requires collaboration. Students will have to work individually and collectively combining their talents, knowledge and expertise.
Divided into groups of three or four, students will decide where they fit best within the group and what role they will take on within their individual group. The students will start by producing proof of medical clearance from a medical doctor.
Second, students will meet with a dietician to discuss their current eating habits, how to design a diet profile, learn about the six major food groups and the benefits of developing healthy eating habits.
Together, they will navigate the web to gather information that will later help them develop a diet plan that is healthy and nutritious. Finally, in collaboration with each of their assigned group, students will design a diet and exercise plan that they feel will work best for them.
Design a complete Diet Analysis that incorporates dieting, exercise, discipline and education on how to develop healthy habits and motivate themselves to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
At the end of this project, students will have acquired the knowledge, skills and resources necessary to lead a healthy, active lifestyle that will not only prolong their lives, but also improve significantly the quality of their lives.
