Week 1 – Discussion
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.
|Preparing Your Mind for Success [CLO: 4]|
Prepare: Take a few moments to read the Week 1 Instructor Guidance.
Reflect: Consider the questions from Section 1.1 to help you reflect on major factors that influence your success. When you have reflected on your thoughts for each, you are ready to write your response.
Write: Respond to each bullet point with at least four to five sentences to provide sufficient detail and context. Creating a heading for each section (e.g., My Motivation) and writing the information under each heading in complete sentences helps the reader quickly identify each section and helps you know that you have covered all of the requirements for this post. Your post should be a minimum of 250 words.
Respond to Peers: Review your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers. Consider discussing how the success factors described by your classmates compare to your own. Provide tips that can help maximize their success. Each response should be a minimum of 50 words.
