• Write 300-500 substantive (thoughtful, insightful, well-considered, critically reasoned) and well-written words on any one topic found in “For Further Reflection” at the end of any of the readings in Chapter Three.  Retype the full topic that you choose at the beginning of your Discussion response.  Then proceed to develop your Discussion.
  • Then read all other postings from your classmates, and comment on at least two other classmates’ postings.  Do not be vague in your commentaries; find something specific to say. If you find something insightful in a classmates posting, it is fine to say so, but say “why” you find it insightful, and add something else to the conversation.  It is fine to disagree with classmates’ writing as well; just be tactful and specific.
