Keystone Discussion Boards
Unfortunately this seems to be one of the things Keystone students overlook the most. A large number of students get to a discussion board assignment, read the prompt, write their response and consider the task completed. But it's not.
Let's look at an example:
Discussion Assignment: Why is the "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King, Jr., still important today?
Remember you need to make THREE (3) posts:
- Write your response. Remember this should be your longest post--at least 1 or more well-developed paragraphs. Also, if the discussion prompt has multiple questions, make sure you address each one in your response.
- Respond to the post of another student. This should be at least one well-developed paragraph. Remember to be respectful of your peer's opinions even if they are not the same as your own.
- Respond to a second student's post.
Your discussion board is now eligible for grading.
