Discussion Rubric

Your active participation in the discussion forums is essential to your overall success. Discussion questions are designed to help you make
meaningful connections between the course content and the larger concepts and goals of the course. These discussions offer you the opportunity to
express your own thoughts, ask questions for clarification, and gain insight from your classmates’ responses and instructor’s guidance.

Requirements for Discussion Board Assignments
Students are required to post one (1) initial post due by ​day three (3)​ (unless otherwise noted by the instructor) and to follow up with at
least two (2) response posts by ​day seven (7)​ for each discussion board assignment. Please be sure to post on at least two separate
days.

For your initial post (1), you must do the following:
● Compose a post of one to two paragraphs.
● Take into consideration material such as course content and other discussion boards from the current module and previous modules, when

appropriate ​(make sure you are using proper citation methods when referencing scholarly or popular resources).

For your response posts (2), you must do the following:
● Reply to at least two different classmates outside of your own initial post thread.
