Grading for Discussions
A portion of your grade is based on participation on Canvas discussions. Much of the course material that you will be tested on is delivered through written lectures. To better understand that material you must regularly read and contribute to Canvas discussions. This process will help you master the course material and prepare for quizzes and exams. In addition to posting your own comments, you must reply to at least two other studentsâ€™ posts for each discussion. Discussions are worth 20 points: 10 for your initial post and 5 for your first two replies. In order to receive full points, you must follow the instructions above.
Civility in Discussions
Although you are encouraged to share your point of view freely, when posting to any discussion, you must remain civil. We all know how easy it is to say something online that you wouldnâ€™t say in person. Please think twice and donâ€™t post anything hurtful to anyone. Since we will be discussing communication, people may share things that are personal and there is a good chance that you are going to read comments that you donâ€™t agree with. Any sort of hostility, insults and name calling do little to communicate ideas and have strongly negative effects on our efforts to learn. Letâ€™s start with kindness and compassion and treating each other with respect.
