Discussion Board Participation 120 points Each student is expected to participate on the weekly discussion boards This takes the place of in class discussion For one 1 of the weeks you will work with a small team to facilitate the discussion see Team Project Discussion Board Facilitation for complete instructions For the most part I will not take part in these discussions however I will be reading them and reserve the right to join in the conversations Minimum Requirements On each of the weekly discussion boards students must post at a minimum of 500 words How you divide your minimum word count is up to you however you must post at least 1 an answer to at least two of the questions 2 comments to at least two of your fellow students answers and 3 at least one response to a comment left to one of your answers My hope is that you will participate more then the minimum At the end of your comments and responses please put the word count in parentheses You can easily determine word count in a word processing program Failure to include the word count will result in on 1 point deducted off your final score for each time it is not included You must post in the appropriate week s discussion board to earn credit If you post after the deadline it will not be evaluated by the team who is facilitating that week Expressing an opinion is not enough You will be evaluated on the consistency and quality of your posts to the weekly discussion board We myself and the facilitators will primarily be looking for how well you support your comments I expect you to work to make meaning of the material of the course We will look for depth of engagement as well as level of critical thinking and inquiry Success hinges on keeping up with readings and referring to them as much as possible when you do respond I recommend that you look at the Student Evaluation form in the Team Project Discussion Board Facilitation to get an idea of how the teams will be evaluating your participation Please note
