PEER RESPONSES. You are also required to respond to at least two other student’s posts/threads on each discussion board.
- Response posts should also be thoughtful and well written. They should demonstrate that you have either learned from another’s post, or that another’s post enabled you to see things differently, or relate to another student on a new level. Simply responding with, “I like your post” or “You make an interesting point” is not sufficient.
- Read what other students have to say and comment on their posts. If someone makes an interesting observation or point, let them know you appreciated their insights and explain how their story has resonated with you. Alternatively, perhaps you disagree with what another student says. Reply (politely) with a critique. You might say, “I understand your perspective, but I viewed this differently…..” Engage in a conversation and invite others to join the conversation.
