11 unread reply.11 reply.
I have asked several questions below. In two separate initial posts, answer any two of my questions by Day 4. These initial posts should be thoughtful and complete, about 150 words each. Copy and paste the discussion question to which you are responding at the top of each initial response.
Return to the forum on a second day this week read your peers’ posts. Respond to at least two of your peers. These posts should be substantive and add to the discussion. This could include asking a probing question or relating your own experience with whatever they’ve posted about initially. Response posts are due by day 7 of the unit.
All discussion forum posts should be written in complete sentences in proper standard written English. Check posts for grammatical and spelling errors, maintain a professional and respectful tone, and answer the question thoroughly.
You should post a total of three times (minimum) with activity on at least three separate days during the unit.
