Burning Question & Responses #12

Every week, unless otherwise stated, you will complete a burning question assignment for each class. This assignment consists of: • Asking a question from the weeks reading that can stimulate discussion • Locate an excerpt from the text that helps contextualize your question (cite page number) • Briefly explain your question and try to connect your question to either your life, or a previous class discussion (1-2 paragraphs). • Responding to as least two classmates questions Guidelines for Responses • Avoid postings that are limited to ‘I agree’ or ‘great idea’, etc. If you agree (or disagree) with a posting, then say why you agree by supporting your statement with concepts from the readings or by bringing in a related example or experience. • Address the questions as much as possible (if the discussion strays, it should be to advance the discussion of similar topics). • Use quotes from the articles or your own research that support your postings. Include page numbers and author/s Rubrics
