DISCUSSION BOARD INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Post Requirements:
  • For the weeks that we have discussion boards, you will post on Sunday night by midnight.  Each post should be well-developed, well-organized, and well-formatted, and free of writing errors.  The post should demonstrate that you have truly mastered the concepts and readings involved, and that you can apply them.
    • Posts are generally around 150 words, though there is no word count requirement per se. 

The forums have a “post first” requirement, which means you won’t see your classmates’ posts until you have posted.

  1. Critique Requirements:
  • Post as a thread to the peer’s original post.
    • Considering the requirements of the assignment,
      • tell your peer what they did well and what needs improvement (pretend you are a nice teacher).

The critiques should be well-developed, thorough, and thoughtful (these typically range around 125 words, though going over or under is fine–no word count requirement here). No response to the critique is required, but is encouraged if your response will further understanding

The post set will be graded after the critiques are in. Late posts/critiques will not be graded.

    • (150 words)
