You will be evaluated on how well you can demonstrate that you
understand the ideas presented throughout the unit, including assigned
readings, discussions, media and independent research. You will also be
evaluated on the quality of your work—its academic rigor, how well it
shows your ability to think critically, and how completely it covers the
discussion topic. Refer to the Discussion Participation Scoring Guide
in the Resources below to learn how your discussions will be evaluated.
Respond to at least two other learners in a manner that advances the discussion in a meaningful way. Your response is expected to be substantive in nature and to reference the assigned readings, as well as other theoretical, empirical, or professional literature to support your
