This essay will count for 20% of the final grade. Please remember, when writing any essay, to always cite your sources. It’s not enough to just provide a references cited list at the end, you have to cite in text where you got your information from. If you have any questions regarding how to cite, please check the “How to Cite” style sheet provided. Discussion Participation: Participation in discussion forums is a requirement. To achieve a passing grade students must post one discussion topic and make two substantial replies to at least one other topic in each forum. Please see the attached discussions guidelines sheet for further information on participation requirements. Discussion participation will count for 10% of your final grade. I cannot overstate how important it is for you to participate in these discussions. The requirements to receive a good grade are not that strenuous and discussion participation will not take that much out of your day and you might find that you enjoy the interaction with your fellow students. Failure to participate can very much adversely affect your grade—it can lower it an entire letter grade. So, don’t neglect discussion participation. If there is an issue with you participating in discussions, please let me know as soon as possible. All correspondence will remain strictly confidential.
