This blog is one way we can extend our classroom discussion of Civil Disobedience. For those of you who have a hard time vocalizing in class, here is your chance to help your quarter discussion grade. There will be two categories of students: starters and responders. There should be no more than 5 or 6 starters; the rest of you will be responders.
(STARTERS) If you start a discussion thread, make sure your idea has not already been “taken.” Your post must set context. You may begin with a quotation from the text or an idea shared in class that you’d like to address, followed by your insightful comments, noticings, or connections. Please be brief.
(RESPONDERS) If you respond to a discussion thread, continue the discussion; do not simply agree or disagree or reiterate. Add something more to the discussion. Please be brief. Make sure to respond to the right person!
ALL: Craft carefully– you are in an academic setting. Respect others’ opinions. Watch your tone. You can post more than once– this is a discussion .
