Discussion Board Forums 2 and 3 willhave2 parts: a thread in response to the instructor’s prompt and replies to at least 2 other classmates’ threads. Review the Discussion Board Forums 2 and 3–Thread Grading Rubric and the Discussion Board Forums2 and 3–RepliesGrading Rubric for a list of criteria and the breakdown of points for each part of these assignments.To complete Discussion Board Forums 2 and 3, adhere to the following:
Note that “I like what you said,” “That’s a good comment,” and “I disagree with your comment” in and of themselves do not count as complete replies. Instead, state why you liked or disliked the comment, add additional thoughts or ideas to the original comment, or provide alternative thoughts or ideas when you disagree.
One of the goals of Discussion Board Forums is to encourage student community learning; thus, not every submission will have a response from the instructor.Rather, the instructor may respond to a few submissions in a way that adds to the conversation, asks a pertinent question, or summarizes some of the key points made.
