Make your initial post to the discussion by the due date for the discussion and then respond to two classmates by 11:59 pm the following day.

To receive top marks on your discussion posts, please refer to the posted rubric (click on the 3 dots at the top-right and select “show rubric”) and follow the guidelines below:

Each post should be at least 250 words and completed on time. In addition, your posts should demonstrate:

Evidence of critical engagement with the assignment: Did you take the time to think analytically and critically about what you were asked to do, and does that show in your post through thoughtful questions and analysis?

Evidence of practice with writing skills: Did you edit and proofread your post to make it “professional”? That is, is it generally free of simple errors? Did you also try to use your rhetorical skills, thesis-building skills, and other things we learned in class? Each post does not need to demonstrate ALL of your writing skills, but should in general reflect your engagement with what is occurring in class. 

Evidence of peer engagement: For each post, did you read your peers’ responses and comment on at least two other posts both thoughtfully and respectfully? Do these comments show you as an active participant and learner?

If you have any questions or concerns about your posting throughout the semester, please do not hesitate to ask.
