Discussion posts should each be 250-400 words in length and make a substantive argument. If your post did not achieve the word limit, TA will deduct points. Also, you cannot earn more points if you submit over 400 words. The discussion point value totals 40, 20 points for the initial post, and 10 for each response. All submissions must follow the APA style considering in-text citation, reference list, etc.

Discussions are graded using the following rubric:

Content: Does your response answer the question(s)? Is your response coherent, clear, and well-developed? Are claims substantially supported by evidence from the text(s) (i.e. do you quote from the readings as needed)?

Format/Organization: Are your ideas organized in a clear way? Do claims follow from your main argument? Does your writing comply with the APA? Did you meet the word limit (250-400)?

Style/Mechanics: Is your prose clear and easy to read? Are there are transitions from one thought to another? Is your spelling, grammar, punctuation, etc. (mostly) correct?

Please note that any direct quotations from course materials (lectures, readings, etc) should be cited appropriately. This is true for your discussion posts, the midterm, and any other time you directly reference work produced/written by another person. For a quick reference guide to citation, check out the college student’s guide to citation styles.
