Discussion Board Forum 1 Instructions
In Module/Week 2: Post a substantive reply to the thread of at least 2 classmates. A substantive reply includes at least 150 words analyzing the thread as well as adding to the research and concepts put forth in that thread. The goal is to create meaningful discussion. To simply restate the idea already put forth or to concur with the first reply is not adding substantial discussion. That is why it is good to do additional outside research.
Post your replies in the forum textbox, not in an attachment like you did for your thread, to the thread with which you would like to respond.
Discussion criteria for this assignment are fulfilled when you have posted 1 thread (concerning your topic) and 2 replies (1 each to 2 classmates’ threads). Make sure to provide scholarly and educational material and work that is engaging and substantive. Simply meeting the minimum requirements earns one only the minimum grade.
Regarding plagiarism: Plagiarism will not be tolerated. The results of plagiarizing a post or parts of a post will be a zero on the post, an F in the course, or expulsion from the school.
In addition, trying to use pre-written posts (from another course, etc.) for this course’s assignments will result in a very low grade if the post does not address the requirements as outlined in the Syllabus. If you did research for another course and want to use part of that research in an assignment for this course, that is perfectly okay. Just make sure you address all the discussion topics and requirements as specified in the Syllabus.
Any form of plagiarism, including cutting and pasting, will result in 0 points for the entire assignment, plus a required 500-word written paper on the topic of plagiarism, in order to receive credit for any online activity.
Submit your thread by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of the Module/Week 1 and your replies by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 2.
