HI2010 Discussion Guidelines and Grading

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”

· Aristotle

Discussion Guidelines

Discussion will play a major role in our virtual classroom. In order to better understand the materials presented, you will be asked to participate in discussions for each of the seven course modules. In order to maximize the efficiency of these discussions, there are two guidelines I will expect you to adhere to:

· The first will be that each student listens to and interprets what other students are saying. In this case, listening will involve reading someone else’s discussion posts carefully and mindfully. Listening is challenging for most of us in our daily lives, and these challenges are intensified here due to the online nature of our course. Without body language and tone, we may easily misunderstand what someone else is saying. Please keep an open mind and try your best to objectively understand what someone else is saying within the context of their words.

· The second guideline will be respect for diversity. The nature of the issues we are examining in this course may, at times, be personal and be challenging to some of your beliefs. However, this is one of the main aims of a college education: to present you with a myriad of opinions and worldly perspectives in order to help you pick and choose what you value so that you may act in accordance with what is important to you. Thus, in our virtual classroom you will be challenged with multiple perspectives, some of which may bring into question some of your deepest held beliefs. It is imperative for our learning environment that we do not engage in personal attacks on one another, but rather treat all opinions with respect even if you do not agree with what is being said. Be prepared to have your beliefs challenged and to challenge others; but, most importantly, be prepared to experience positive change and growth from this discourse.

Discussion Grading

For each of the seven course modules you will be expected to make one original post and at least three responses. Therefore, for each module you will be expected to post a minimum of four thoughtful, relevant, and exploratory philosophical reflections.

· Your original post must be made to the initial prompt provided.

· Follow-up posts should include responses to other student’s posts and follow-up comments on your own posts.

· I would like for you to address follow-up questions as needed.

· The first of your discussion posts must be made halfway through the module (I will post specific due dates for each discussion on Canvas), so that we don’t wait until the last minute to get the discussion threads rolling.

Your discussion grade will not only be based on whether or not you made four posts; I will also look at the quality of your posts, and whether or not you made an attempt to answer the questions/challenges being presented to you. In your posts/responses, you must include explicit reference to the concepts and ideas presented in the readings and lectures for that module. This means you should use direct quotes from the readings, or include direct reference to ideas and vocabulary introduced in the readings. I am very curious in reading your opinions about these topics, but I will expect them to be well-informed opinions which demonstrate reflective thought.

For each module, you will receive one discussion grade based on your overall participation in that module. Grades will be broken down as follows:

· A = 15 points

· Made 4+ posts that were relevant, thoughtful, and philosophical

· Included explicit reference to concepts and ideas from the module readings and materials

· Addressed follow-up questions and responses in a timely and appropriate manner

· B = 11 points

· Made 4+ posts that were relevant, thoughtful, and philosophical

· Included explicit reference to concepts and ideas from the module readings and materials

· C = 7 points

· Made 4+ posts that were somewhat relevant, somewhat thoughtful, but not philosophical

· Did not include explicit reference to the concepts and ideas from the module readings or materials

· D = 5 points

· Made 4+ posts that were not relevant, not thoughtful, and/or not philosophical

· Did not include explicit reference to the concepts and ideas from the module readings or materials

· F =4 points or below

· Incomplete (less than 4 posts, no explicit reference, etc.)
