1. Make an initial post (100 word minimum) to EACH of the four discussion topics within the first two weeks of the beginning of the course.
2. Students are required to make at least three reflective posts (100 word minimum) to the comments of other students.
Students must begin by first stating “I believe your main (basic)point was”. You may then proceed to discuss your viewpoint and advance or clarify you contribution to the discussion topic.
3. For a post to be considered significant it must be a minumum of 100 words.
OTHER issue for consideration for your discussion participation
You must be active with a significant post (100 word minimum) on at least 8 Different days.
You cannot make all posts for the class on one day. Be a participant and active.
There is an assigned discussion topic for each module. Comments need to be relevant and reflect a true attempt to address the issues.
You may choose to incorporate your text readings in your discussion. (you are not required to reference the online text. you can quote your best friend, your grandma. This is a reflective.. but respectful experience)
I will be sending relevant e-mail throughout the semester. Involvement affects your grade. (hint) Stay active and relevant.
Students may not simply agree ( or repeat) but advance (build upon) or further the discussion
Review the discussion threads thoroughly before entering the discussion. Be a lurker then a discussant.Try to maintain threads by using the “Reply” button rather starting a new topic.
Do not make insulting or inflammatory statements to other members of the discussion group. Be respectful of others’ ideas.Be patient and read the comments of other group members thoroughly before entering your remarks.
