This is your first graded online assignment. Hence, things will be done in this ‘discussion’ a bit differently than they will for the rest of the year. This will be a regularly weighted assignment worth 10 points. Let’s see who doesn’t earn the full 10 points, eh?

Read the Student Code of Academic Integrity, and THIS entire page, BEFORE you post….VERY IMPORTANT!!!

The rules are rather simple, really, when it comes to posting to discussions.

In addition to agreeing to follow the Student Code of Academic Integrity (READ IT. IT WILL TAKE YOU 5-10  MINUTES.) that you can find on this website, you will also have to follow the rules you create in class to work by in class and at home: your class rules. Those rules apply when you are online doing HW.

When you have to go online to do an assignment you may be directed to an area devoted to your period.

Please follow these instructions once you get any actual discussion area:

  1. Read or view the posted discussion topic entry. The whole thing.
  2. Determine what you will say in response. DO this on paper. Get your thoughts  in order (with a main idea sentence, details and elaboration), organized, capitalized and punctuated properly.
  3. When you are ready to post, it is very important that you follow these guidelines so that I can enter your grade appropriately:
    1. ONLY use your First Name and Last Initial where you enter your name . . .
      1. So Horatio Jackson would enter Horatio J. Get it? Very good.
    2. Add your class or block to it . . .
      1. Horatio J.  1
    3. Do NOT enter a website URL/webpage address.
    4. Type your comment in the box provided.
    5. Click “Submit Comment”.
  4. And Wallah!!!!! You have posted your response to the discussion topic.

NOW! YOU ARE FINISHED READING THIS. Did you read the Student Code of Academic Integrity ? If you DID NOT, then go read it now. By posting here, you are agreeing to that too.

YOU MUST NOW POST THE FOLLOWING COMMENT TO THIS DISCUSSION; YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE BULLETS AS I HAVE:

  • YOUR FIRST NAME & LAST INITIAL
  • PERIOD/Block #
  • TODAY’S DATE
  • AND THE TWO WORDS “I Agree”

SCROLL DOWN AND POST.

  • 2.5 points – YOUR FIRST NAME  & LAST INITIAL
    • for instance Johnathan Hancock  would be “John H“)
  • 2.5 points – PERIOD/Block # – If you know them.
    • for instance 1=Block 1, 2=Block 2, etc., etc.)
  • 2.5 points – DATE
    • for instance August 28, 2009 could be 8/28/09)
  • 2.5 points – AND THE TWO WORDSI Agree

Like this ->  John H – 1 – 1/20/12 – I agree

That’ll be 10 points for those who post properly.
