Each student must also respond to a minimum of 2 fellow students’ postings; each response must be at least 100 words in length. Responses to each question should draw on key concepts you have learned during the week’s reading. All written assignments must be in the student’s own words, and MUST include citations (in proper MLA format) giving the source credit for ANY paraphrases or direct quotes based on published authors’ work, and should be submitted error free. Your comments to your classmates need to be substantive. A substantive comment contributes a new idea or perspective, a good follow-up question to a point made, offers a response to a question, provides an example or illustration of a key point, points out an inconsistency in an argument, etc. Thus a message that simply says “I agree” is not substantive. Your post is due by 11:59pm EST Saturday. No exceptions. This post is required by all students participating in the course and has to be completed on time.
