Initial Post

Discussion contributions will be graded based on the insight and supporting evidence provided as it relates to the topic or concept being discussed. Posts must be substantive and relate to the concept being discussed in depth and detail, where initial posts should be approximately 2 paragraphs. All posts should provide insightful statements which are supported through examples, data, statistics, or facts. Your initial post is due Wednesday by 11:59pm.

Responsive Posts

Responsive posts should be at least one paragraph and should relate to the concept in depth and detail. Good practices include furthering the discussions by elaborating on the concept, providing thought provoking questions, relating to personal experiences, and forecasting future implications. All posts should provide insightful statements which are supported through examples, data, statistics, or facts. Replies that do not elaborate on the topic being discussed will not be counted, nor will simplistic responses that only state encouragement or agreement without elaborating and/or reasoning. “Good job”, or “I agree with your statement” in itself does not constitute a response, but can be good encouragement if backed up by substantive content relating to the topic.

Discussion Topic – Creation of Magnificent Landforms throughout Michigan

-Identify what you like to (or would like to) do in terms of recreation at those places

-Describe what Geologic Period and geologic processes that helped shape this landform.
