Week 5 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
As you reflect on this course, how has your knowledge of neuroplasticity contributed to a more thorough understanding of brain development and learning? Does the traditional educational system teach learners to think? Does understanding the brain functions and cognitive processes help you to evaluate each learner with respect to learning differences? Why or why not?
Guided Response: Review at least two of your classmates’ posts and extend their learning by challenging their responses. Challenge your classmates by asking a question that may cause them to reevaluate or confirm their belief and understanding. Or you may offer additional information that may confirm their belief and provide them words of encouragement.
