Discussion Board Assignment 2
How to generate a good discussion post:
a) Be professional and courteous. Online communication lacks the non-verbal cues that
provide much of the meaning in face-to-face conversations. Choose your words carefully,
phrase your sentences clearly, and keep your sentences and paragraphs brief.
b) When responding to posts by other students, please address them using their first and
last name at the beginning of your response to their post. Please start your post, as
â€¢ Pat Winter, (Student that provided the initial post)
â€¢ I thought that you provided excellent insights about the topicâ€¦ (Your response)
â€¢ Chris Summer (Your first and last name)
c) Justify your answers by referring to your readings, facts, or personal experience to
support your statements, ideas, and opinions. In other words, after addressing the
question (i.e., what you think), you must state why you believe that you have provided
relevant and meaningful comments.
d) Pose a thought-provoking question related to the topic at the end of your discussion. Your
questions may help others respond to your comments.
e) Respect each otherâ€™s ideas, feelings, and experiences. Showing appreciation of how
someone has contributed to your learning is an important skill. This does not mean you
agree with your classmate; instead, it demonstrates awareness of your classmateâ€™s
personal views and your ability to interpret information.
f) Appreciation is often given for a specific part of your classmateâ€™s comments that:
â€¢ Clarified something that was confusing or unclear
â€¢ Opened up a whole new line of thinking for you
â€¢ Provided helpful evidence or insights
â€¢ Identified a gap in reasoning that needed to be addressed
â€¢ Was intriguing and had not been considered before
â€¢ Showed the connection between two ideas when the relationship had not been
â€¢ Helped increase your understanding of an issue
g) Explore disagreements and support assertions with data and evidence from the text and
online news sources. However, please maintain a professional tone even when you
disagree with your classmate.
h) Do not use postings such as â€œI agree,â€ â€œWho cares,â€ or â€œditto.â€ They do not add to the
discussion topic, take up space on the Discussion Boards, and will not receive credit for
i) Avoid posting large blocks of text. Please break long blocks of text into paragraphs and
use a space between paragraphs.
Discussion Board Assignment 3
j) Do not use all capital letters that make it difficult to read your comments. Your message
comes across as though you were shouting.
k) Proofread what you post. A helpful hint for use with both Discussion Board assignments
and email: Compose your message in your word-processing application to check spelling,
punctuation, and grammar; then copy and paste your composition into the discussion.
l) You will not be able to edit or delete comments from the Discussion Board Assignment.
m) There are three critical components for providing feedback to other students:
1) Start with a positive statement about their work.
2) Provide input, feedback, questions, or research that adds value to the information
that was posted by the other student.
3) End with a positive statement about the topic or discussion provided by the other
There will be two due dates for each Discussion Board. Your initial response to discussion
questions will be due on Thursdays, and responses to other students will be due on Sundays each
week. Comments submitted after the due dates will not receive credit for the assignment.
