Can you tell which position the initial poster is endorsing?
What characteristics did they use in their summary to help them not show their own opinions on the topic?
What did they say that resonated with you or your experience and why?
Keep in mind that a simple response of “I agree” or “I disagree” without a thorough explanation is insufficient and may result in no credit given for those entries.
Instead, respond as you would if you were having an academic conversation with a fellow classmate in real-time (this would mean politely, of course.) Failure to follow the rule for polite discourse may also result in a zero on your own discussion board assignment.
Discussion boards should exhibit significant thought and include content with supporting data, references to the text and/or secondary information, articles/websites that relate to the content, cite current events that are relevant, post personal experiences, etc.
Since we are remote – this is the best way we can communicate with one another as both presenting and LEARNING from our peers.
