1.Each student must post one “Critical Reflection” and one “Critical Reply” in each Discussion.
2.Each Critical Reflection must be a minimum of 300 words.
3.Each Critical Reply must be a minimum of 100 words.
4.GIVE YOUR POSTS TITLES: when you create a Post, whether as a Reflection or a Reply, you have a place to give your post a “Subject”-line. The “Subject”-line serves as a title for your post within the Discussion forum. Be sure to give every Reflection and every Reply an original and informative subject line.
GOOD CRITICAL REFLECTIONS:
state and defend a THESIS about what one of our assigned authors says or thinks, and/or about the significance or implications of what your chosen author says or thinks
a good thesis will be clear, specific, significant, defensible, and contestable;
express and defend a PERSPECTIVE about your chosen author’s statements or thoughts
a good perspective will be critical – it will raise questions about the author’s views, and/or bring out something significant about the author’s reasoning;
include at least one specific reference to our reading from the course (i.e., reference some fact, claim, or thesis presented by one of our assigned texts, providing a page number);
exhibit study and understanding of relevant texts;
are clear, accurate, and insightful;
are well written and free of typos and grammatical errors; and
are a minimum of 300 words.
