Agora (Discussion) Assignment


The Agora is where we will hold "class discussions," so to speak. For each unit, there is a question or topic for you to respond to in the Discussions section of the WebCT. See below for how points are given. Please read everything.

There are seven actual Agora topics--one for saying hello to everyone and six for Units 1-3 and 5-7. For Units 1-3 and 5-7, you must make at least 2 postings per Unit. (There are also discussion topics for Units 4 and 8 which I hope you will use.) Therefore, the minimum number of postings you must make will be 13. The points for posting are below--

Fewer than 13 postings  0 points
13-20 postings 10 points
21-28 postings 15 points
29 postings or more 20 points

Important--In order to get the Agora (discussion) points, you will need to write up a one or two paragraph response to your experience in the Agora and of your fellow students. This paper will be sent in via the "Discussion" assignment on the Assignments page.

Please do not send in your Agora Assignment Paper until after you have sent in the Final.
