Answer the question
Reply to anyone of the student that wrote the opinion
You must post: 1) an initial answer to the question; and, 2) a reply to a colleague.
Take care to formulate arguments, not simple declarative statements. An argument is a well-developed, clearly stated line of reasoning aimed at convincing others of the truth or fallacy of a statement.
“Reasoned” means that you’ve thought about the question and present your ideas in a coherent fashion. It does not mean that I or your classmates agree with you.
You will encounter a variety of viewpoints on volatile topics over the course of the semester. You may disagree, perhaps strongly, with opinions expressed by your classmates (and almost certainly, me).
As long as we treat each other with respect, these differences enhance class discussion and create an atmosphere where we learn from each other. Rest assured that your grades will not be influenced by beliefs or ideas expressed on the discussion boards.
And though all the winds of doctrine were let loose to play upon the earth, so Truth be in the field, we do injuriously, by licensing and prohibiting, to misdoubt her strength. Let her and Falsehood grapple; who ever knew Truth put to the worse, in a free and open encounter?
–Milton, Aeropagitica, 1643
Participation is graded on whether your comments are thoughtful and coherent, respond directly to the question (or another post in the board), contribute something new to the discussion, reflect an effort to move the discussion along, bring some evidence to your argument, and reflect an understanding of the course materials.
NOTE: I take spelling, grammar, and composition into account when grading your work. Your work must be well-written to receive full credit.
