Unit discussions involve responding to two of three questions based upon the readings and responding to two classmates. Discussion posts are to be thorough and thoughtful – and are to be mostly your critical thinking and analysis and not largely borrowed materials. Please do reference the course readings(and only the course readings) but only enough to support your argument. Appropriate documentation is required for references. You choose two of three possible discussion questions in each unit. For each question, you will post an initial discussion of 200 words by Wednesday and a response post of 50 words to another student’s initial post by Sunday. Each initial discussion is worth from 1 to 3 points; each response to a classmate is worth 1 or 2 points, for a total of 10 points per unit and a total of 80 points for the term.
