Your response to your Discussion Board is more similar to a ‘mini paper’. Your response is to ‘show evidence of knowledge and understanding of your reading assignment and include other resources beyond the assigned reading to EXTEND the learning’ AND you need to clearly communicate ideas and opinions (based on your readings) and deepen discussion AND ‘postings show appropriate vocabulary and writing style …which is professional and APA format. Thus….this results not in a short answer, but instead a ‘mini paper’ of sorts. (Citations Required)

This assignment requires an initial post and a reply to a peer or classmate.

The peer response isn’t necessarily a critique of their post. What they are basically looking for is for us to elaborate or further build on their posts. We are able to agree or disagree. Highlight the points that we found interesting and build on it. Respond with our thoughts about the matter. Adding evidence to support the conversation and then asking a question to stimulate conversation.
