Each paragraph must contain 5 or more sentences. Please read the rubric. Do not cite the Internet, only cite from the textbook. You must cite the text at least 3 times for your entire post in MLA style (see Announcements). Respond to 2 or more classmates with 3 or more sentences. Failure to follow these instructions will result in deduction of points. Remember that you will obtain a failing score for the entire DB post if you first submit a blank post first, for I consider it cheating. Along the lines of cheating, submitting a partial DB post first and an additional one to complete the DB will also result in only the first (partial) post being graded. In other words, keep all answers on one post.
For more info on grading policy for Discussion Boards see the grading rubric located in the syllabus and other docs tab. Lastly, all citations must contain page numbers or else you will lose 10 points.
