Discussion Strategy

Online Threaded Discussion

To help promote class discussion, I will rely on the online threaded discussion that we used in our Blog assignments. This method will work very well to give all students a chance to become engaged in the discussion.

I will need to give guidance, but I would like the discussion to develop as fully as possible. For example, when the class is studying “The Scarlet Letter” by Nathaniel Hawthorne, I would ask students to consider the significance of Pearl’s personality in the book. What does she represent? How does she affect the other characters?

I would like the Blog discussion to have a focus, but not be too confined.
