Blue Sky Mine

A. To prepare for your original posting, do some online research about the Blue Sky Mine and then view the official music video “Blue Sky Mine” by Midnight Oil in order to:

1. identify (and post using 1a, 1b, etc to identify your answers) – 8 pts

a. what was mined here and for what purpose the material was/is used
b. how the Colonial Sugar Refinery treated its miners during and after the mine operations
c. whether or not the company demonstrated principles of corporate social responsibility (look this term up if it’s unfamiliar to you)
if they did demonstrate corporate social responsibility, describe at least two example of how they did demonstrate CSR
if they did not demonstrate corporate social responsibility, describe at least two examples of how they could have demonstrated CSR
who is responsible for ensuring corporate social responsibility in any setting in any nation and why
2. describe (and post) how Midnight Oil uses music (speed, tone, volume, key, etc.), lyrics, and, importantly, images to tell the story of the Blue Sky Mine – 4 pts

B. After you have posted, you must respond to at least one of your classmates right there on the discussion thread. This is worth 2+2 = 4 points.

In your response posting, you must include
a reply to your classmate; note, a response includes a significant statement/commentary/additional example on the classmates’ post that adds something significant to the conversation…not just “good job” or “I like your post.” (this is worth 2 point) and
your own “beautiful question” – that is, a well thought out question that shows knowledge and understanding beyond an obvious question. Beautiful questions are clear, specific, relevant, and invite an open-ended response (i.e. not a yes/no question). They may be in response to another classmate’s question (you can’t reply to yourself Smile) or to something that they have written in their original post. Your beautiful question is worth 2 points.
