Forums

Check out the Forum Post and Discussion Assessment to understand how you are graded. Forums 101 will be helpful, also (8 Intriguing Strategies to Continue Discussions and Rich Replies to Peers). More help with what to do here.

Forum #1: on Death of a Salesman 
Image credit:  en.wikipedia.org

Be the first or second person to respond to one of the prompts in this forum by replying directly under the prompt OR be the first or second person to reply to two of the responses.  To receive credit, your commentary must be thoughtful and use specific evidence from the play. You must also add something new to the discussion -- a new idea, a challenge to existing ideas, a new source for reference. Responses must be 150+ words*. Replies to responses must be 80+ words*.


Also, folks who were the first or second to respond to a prompt are required to reply to those who replied to their responses.  

You are allowed to "call" a response only (not a reply to a response) by posting, "I call one of these responses." Be sure to refresh before "calling" to be sure a response opportunity is still available.

Also, to identify a response and a reply, the response will not begin with a person's name and will be 150+ words. The reply should begin with a responder's name and be 80+ words. Please sign with your first name at the end of your responses and replies!


It would be polite and respectful to reply to any replies on your commentary. All parts of this assignment are due by

*A note on word counts. Please do not think that because you've met the word count minimum, you have met the content requirements of the assignment.

  2. Jacob (or should I say, Kyle),
    Thank you for commenting. You are perfectly correct in using this comment function. I appreciate your positive observations. To answer your question regarding individual student blogs, yes, I do believe that they too are an extension of the classroom. Through them, I hope that your thinking as well as your writing grows and improves. It certainly is delightful for me to read all the different ideas and observations that my students have about their learning. I hope you are enjoying your blogging experience now and will continue to. Thanks again for taking the time to comment.
