Discussion #1: Class Introductions

This discussion posting is a part of Chapter 1 assignments.

We are discussing ideas and attempting to expand our understanding of philosophy and it is only natural that a wide range of opinions, viewpoints and ideas will be expressed. Be aware of the rules of good Netiquette when posting. This first activity will help you learn how to use the discussion board and also get to know some of your virtual classmates.

For all discussions, up to 8 points are awarded for your initial post and 2 points for a response to at least one classmate. I am grading your discussions by these 3 criteria:

Initial Post (approx. 300 word)

  1. Evidence of critical thought
  2. Evidence of a complete understanding of the relevant theories and concepts
  3. Grammar, spelling and length

Responses to classmates (approx. 100 word)

  1. Evidence of critical thought
  2. Clear and cogent evaluation of the classmate’s post
  3. Grammar, spelling and length

(For a more detailed explanation of how I grade each post and reply, see the “Discussion Grading Rubric” in the tab labeled “Grading Rubrics” on the left.)

Click the name of the forum above and to the left to get started.

On the next screen, Click on “??” at the top to start your posting.

For your first discussion, please introduce yourself to the other members of the class and explain how your philosophy affects your decisions. Give specific examples. Then respond to at least one other classmate’s posting. I am looking for clear and cogent comments, and critical thought about your personal philosophy (not just “your opinion”). Take a look at my post to get an idea of what I am looking for, as well as to learn a little about me. You should read Chapter One BEFORE writing your first post (I am expecting to see evidence of what you learned in the posts…so always be sure to read everything in the text up to, and including, the section I list with the prompt.)
