Students will generate topics for their arguments from their major field of study or an area of interest if a major has not yet been declared. In either case, the instructor will approve the topic. The instructor may also assign topics. Students are actively encouraged to consult often with their academic advisor, professors in their major, or professors in the content area of the argument’s topic for help with content material or a topic itself. While the majority of the final grade will be based on the written work, there will be five, short answer quizzes, which are designed to ensure comprehension of the content portion of the class so that students can then apply that knowledge in their arguments. Discussion Guidelines: Class participation grades will largely be determined by how well (or poorly) a student performs on the weekly discussion questions. Students’ responses to discussion questions will be graded once per week, and completion of them will count as attendance in this class. Furthermore, the comments and ideas within the discussion posts will take the place of more traditional lectures. For all these reasons combined, it is critical that students follow the guidelines listed below as they work on each week’s discussion prompts. Quality : Initial responses to a discussion question should consist of at least a fully developed paragraph (at least five complete sentences). You should also demonstrate that you are engaged with an assignment or with something a classmate has posted. Provide examples to support what you think someone has done well or needs to do better. And if you do not understand a point that is made during our discussions, post a question about it. Each response to a classmate’s post must consist of at least one complete, informative paragraph. Frequency : You must complete at least three high quality posts per week. If there is one assigned discussion question in a weekly module, you will need to post a response to that question and then respond to at least two classmates’ posts. If two discussion questions are assigned during a given week, you must post a response to each of those questions and reply to one of your classmate’s posts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
