Write a 250 word essay response to the principle question. There must be a minimum of three separate and distinct paragraphs (introduction, discussion and conclusion). Beginning the introduction by restating the question is inappropriate. The introduction must contain a thesis statement. Grading will be based on structure, organization, grammar and spelling.
Respond to the principle question not later than 2400 Wednesday and post comments to postings of two colleagues on two different days NLT 2400 Saturday as Sunday is reserved for commenting to those who responded to your postings.
Once the response to the principle question has been completed it is then necessary to contribute a minimum of two comments to postings of colleagues. In connection with this aspect of participation, entering the discussion on a single day and making a post is inconsistent with the virtual classroom concept. In addition all comments to colleague’s posting must be completed NLT 2400 on Saturday. Sunday is reserved for comments to colleagues who have posted something to your responses.
Responses are not simply to agree or disagree, but must exhibit a position supported by specific data or information. It is expected that everyone will engage others in discussing the issues raised in the thread.
Responding to comments or postings of Dr. White is not included in the quantity component of the grading scheme. Quality is subjectively evaluated and refers to the degree to which the posting addresses specific issues and comments of others in discussion. Again, simply entering the course and making a comment and leaving is inconsistent with the concept of virtual classroom which is based on discussion and debate.
