Your postings should be well written and clearly address the issues being discussed. I expect each writing assignment to have:
(1) A clear thesis statement, which addresses directly the question posed by the instructor;
(2) A body of factual examples that support your thesis; these examples may be drawn from either the assigned readings or properly cited sources researched independently by the student. Posted threads drawn from the work of another must be appropriately cited; plagiarized threads will be penalized;
(3) a coherent paragraph structure that emphasizes your main points and college-level English; and,
(4) A succinct concluding paragraph.
