In drafting your posts, please note the six aspects of your writings as listed in the syllabus that will be graded. These include grammatical errors. Please also note that you have an opportunity to earn extra credit should you meet the requirements for early postings and the number of responses.

Also note that as an instructor, my major role in the forum discussions is to steer the discussions in the right direction. By “right” I don’t mean there are “right” answers for the questions being asked. Rather, it means that your discussions should be revolving around these questions and are relevant. As such, you should expect minimal input from me, and such input is expected to decline over time.
