What did you find that surprised you? What questions were left unanswered from this brief review of research?
Reply to at least two students who researched a topic that was different from the one your selected.
Discussions require a minimum of 3 posts. The first post is your “initial response” or “Main Post” as this is your “opening or position statement”. It should be about 150-250 words and should include citations/references indicating where you found your information. Then provide a minimum of TWO thoughtful and relevant replies to fellow students for each discussion question. The guideline for a reply post is about 100-150 words. These posts should be relevant, timely, well-written, and include citations. This is your chance to “show off” what you have learned through the readings, videos, and external/scholarly sources you have found. Posting the obvious, or comments such as “I agree with you” or “That was an interesting idea” are not given value toward your discussion grade.
