Peer Response(s): Read the responses from your peers and offer a constructive critique or additional information that adds substantively to the discussions. Be sure to acknowledge any outside sources you use.
Your responses to other students must be more than a simple “Good job” or “I agree with your post.” They must also not just be “Let me add to your post…” Instead, your responses to each other should do three things:
1. Acknowledge the other student’s post with some form of recognition about what they posted
2. Relate their posting to something you have learned or are familiar with
3. Add to the conversation by asking additional questions about their post, or discussing their topic further
Remember, this is a discussion forum. Your engagement with each other should be similar to how you would speak with each other if you were seated at the same table talking.
Your initial response to the question posed is due by Wednesday of each week of the course and you must respond to a minimum of two other learners (peers) during the week. The peer responses are due by Sunday.
You must support your statements and ensure that you properly cite and reference your sources.
Plagiarism in the discussion will not be tolerated.
