My post should begin with a sentence or possibly two of context, wherein I explain what concept from the readings with links above that I am responding to. Other that those one or two sentences, I should not summarize the reading or video. My post should offer my own analysis.
This is a good forum to “try out” ideas — please do not feel like you must be able to defend everything you say as if your life depended on it. My post can have a merely tangential connection to the readings or lectures, but it should relate clearly to rhetoric/human communication. My post can have sort of a “I’m not totally sure if this idea really works, but it seems like . . .” kind of vibe. Obviously, trying out new ideas works best when we’re respectful of others, open-minded about adopting other perspectives, and generous with giving one another the benefit of the doubt when we disagree.
Try to use the detached, analytical perspective.
The main grading criteria will be the 1) originality and 2) depth of my post.
Good Discussion Board posts often end up having one paragraph that offers an original example and then one paragraphs that explores the concept in depth. Think about how I am organizing my ideas.
In general, think about using my Discussion Board work to add to the class’s understanding.
