To earn a higher grade on each week’s discussion, students are expected to post more frequently. To sum up: posting three times in a week will earn a grade of a C. Four posts of high quality according to the rubric will earn a B, and five high quality posts according to the rubric earn an A. Again, please check the rubric for details on this.Students are expected to post on three separate days each week for average credit. During the week, read the messages posted by your instructor and classmates and join the discussion. Your instructor may ask questions, provide explanations, and include links to other resources.


From Professor:

Marc, in your responses, please focus on the literature. You do not need to critique their writing. That is my role. Instead, reveal to me that you have completed the readings and comment on their views of the assigned literature.

Thank you.

I will send you the response before Wednesday ok.
