In the spirit of avoiding confusion and disappointment, please refer to your pink sheet entitled "Important Information" handed out with your syllabus for the following rule before continuing.*
"1. You must comment on at least 6 posts—3 prior to your midterm exam and 3 prior to your final exam—during the respective week in which the post appears. These posts will specifically be labeled as discussion posts. The comments will count as 5 points each toward your exam grade (15 points total toward each exam). Comments will be closed once the next discussion post goes up so don’t forget to participate. (Feel free to comment on other posts as well, however, only comments on discussion posts will count toward your exam grade.)"
This means you need to look for this icon:
and then contribute to that discussion. I will number the posts (#1, #2, #3, etc...) If you missed the opportunity to contribute to a discussion, please see the next posted discussion. In addition, when I close the old discussion, I will simultaneously introduce the new one so an opportunity to comment will always be available. I plan on introducing new discussion posts every Monday.
If you see any of these icons:
feel free to comment, however, it will not count toward your exam grade.
Thank You. And now back to your regularly scheduled program. (This week's discussion post is below...)
