Evaluation Criteria For Threaded Discussions: Your discussion must have ONE paragraph with a minimum of 125 words for each part of the discussion. Discussion question(s) should present well-reasoned and thoughtful analyses. Each student will also need to respond to a classmates Original Discussion Thread, but on a topic that is different than your Initial discussion. For example - if your initial response is to Discussion Option B, then your response to a classmate needs to be to someone who posts an initial response to Discussion Option A. The response needs to have a minimum of 50 Words and add to the discussion topic. Don't simply say "I agree with so-and-so" or " Mona Lisa is cool" and expect that to suffice. I look for well-reasoned and thoughtful comments; I will not penalize you for opinions with which I disagree. You are not limited to one post and are encouraged to be actively involved in the discussion.
