Gen 103 week 1 dq 2


Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Carefully review the Open Forum Discussion Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.


Open   Forum



Prepare Icon

Prepare: Take a few minutes to think about   the material that we’ve covered in this course so far.


Reflect Icon

Reflect: Reflect on what you found   interesting, surprising, or confusing in this past week. What did you learn   that caused you to understand an issue or an event differently?  What   habits or tips did you discover that helped you to complete your course work   more effectively or efficiently?


Write Icon

Write: This discussion forum is an   opportunity for you to explore topics that interest you, share critical   insights and questions that you are working with, share your struggles and   triumphs, and discuss difficulties that may have arisen this week, hopefully   finding solutions. Your initial post should describe your experiences in the   course this past week, prompting further discussion. You should address at   least two of the following questions: 

  • What struck you in particular        as you explored the course materials this week?
  • What insights have you had?
  • What have you been struggling        with?
  • What questions have come up        for you at this point?
  • Do you have any helpful tips        that you’ve picked up in this course or in a past course?
  • Do you have questions about        the assignment that your classmates might be able to help with? (If you        have a question for the instructor, be sure to contact your instructor        through email or in the Ask Your Instructor Forum).

  You are required to post at least 100 total words in this forum this week.   You can post one time or ten times, the only requirements are that you post   at least 100 words total and that you engage in conversation related to   course content. Ask questions, answer questions, provide extra resources you   found that are interesting, or engage in a debate about something you learned   this week. The only requirement is that your comments have to relate to the   course content.

  Provide a full explanation of the issues that you discuss in your posts. For   example, if you write that you had difficulty thinking of a topic for your   annotated bibliography, explain where in the process of determining a topic   you had difficulty. Could you not think of any topics? Could you think of too   many topics? Did you have a hard time finding useful information when you did   background research?

  Similarly, when responding to your classmates, be sure to elaborate. For   example, if you write that you also found a specific topic interesting,   explain what about that topic you found interesting and why. Is it the same   aspects of the topic that your classmate found interesting? Were you unaware   that events associated with the topic took place? Did the information that   you learned change your understanding of those events?

  If you have a question for your instructor, you should contact your   instructor through email or in the “Ask Your Instructor” board. This Open Forum   is a place for you to collaborate and connect with your classmates as well as   support one another. Your instructor will monitor this board and may post,   but he/she is not expected to answer all questions.

  If you notice a classmate is struggling with something that you can help   with, use your responses as a way to support them. Helping out your   classmates will not only benefit them, but it will also help to solidify your   own knowledge.

All of your participation in this   forum is due before Day 7 of the week.
