    Instructions for Responses to Classmates Posts

    After you have created your initial post, look over the discussion posts of your classmates and give at least three responses to different classmates (one per classmate) as outlined in the Discussion Grading Rubric.

    A response posting should be a minimum of one short paragraph. Word totals for these posts should be in the 75150-word range.  The goal of your response posts is to extend discussions already taking place or pose new possibilities or ideas not previously voiced.  Your goal should be to motivate the group discussion and present a creative approach to the topic.  Do not merely agree or disagree, repeating what a classmate stated or what you have already stated.  Explain the why or how with supporting evidence and concepts from the course material.  Include in-text citations and associated reference within a reference list.


    Self-plagiarism is the act of reusing significant, identical, or nearly identical portions of one’s own work.  You cannot re-use any portion of a paper or other graded work that was submitted to another class even if you are retaking this course.  You also will not reuse any portion of previously submitted work in this class.  A zero will be assigned to the assignment if self-plagiarized.  Faculty do not have the discretion to accept self-plagiarized work.
