Please join the discussions each week. Students must post a reply to each weekly discussion and reply to at least 2 other students for each Discussion. This means that each week you should have 1 initial post and 2 responsive posts. Replies must be posted in the week due and replies after the end of the each week will not be graded. The Discussions are for student interaction and input should be submitted before the week ends in order to fully participate in the discussions. Students should demonstrate their own knowledge in the discussions and avoid copying and pasting from websites.
Post the initial response to each discussion by Wednesday. That will give your classmates a chance to respond back to you.
Initial responses are to be original in content and demonstrate a thorough analysis of the topic.
Read your classmates’ posts and respond to a minimum of two of them on Sunday. You are encouraged to participate in the discussion with your peers throughout the week.
Responses to classmates are significant to advance the discussion.
All discussions can be accessed in the Discussions section of the course.
Communicating on the Discussion
Discussions are the heart of the interaction in this course. The more engaged and lively the exchanges, the more interesting and fun the course will be. Only substantive comments will receive credit. Although there is a final posting time after which the instructor will grade comments, it is not sufficient to wait until the last day to contribute your comments/questions on the discussion. The purpose of the discussions is to actively participate in an on-going discussion about the assigned content.
“Substantive” means comments that contribute something new and hopefully important to the discussion. Thus a message that simply says “I agree” is not substantive. A substantive comment contributes a new idea or perspective, a good follow-up question to a point made, offers a response to a question, provides an example or illustration of a key point, points out an inconsistency in an argument, etc.
As a class, if we run into conflicting view points, we must respect each individual’s own opinion. Hateful and hurtful comments towards other individuals, students, groups, peoples, and/or societies will not be tolerated.
Your follow-up posts may add additional insights to a classmate’s opinions or may challenge posted opinions. Use examples from the readings, or from your own research to support your views as appropriate. Be sure to read the follow-up posts to your own posts and reply to any questions or requests for clarification. By the way, include the name of the person’s post you are replying to and your source for further research or reference. Thanks!
