Then as you are reading and responding to at least 2

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

Then, as you are reading and responding to at least 2 of your peers, be sure to reference a specific point, idea, or question raised by their post and then offer your reaction. You can state some new information you learned or you can relate your peer's post to an example from your own life. In other words, avoid responses like "I agree!" or "Good job on your post." Rather, say something like, "Stan, your post about Selective Attention was very helpful. The way you worded it as two levels of processing made a lot of sense to me. It reminds me of how much of our day takes place on two levels. I was talking on my cell phone the other day and realized I couldn't even remember the trip from Asheville to Waynesville; but, somehow I made it." Essentially, in your peer responses, you want to find something in your peer's post that made you think about the content differently or gave you a new idea about the subject matter that would relate. Respond about this. Also, add your own observations that tie in with your peer's response. Your initial discussion board posting should be thorough and more detailed. Your 2 peer responses will be shorter and less detailed but should still contain something of substance (i.e. not just "I agree or "Good point.") Hope this guidance helps.

    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.
