Please read the General Format & Rubric posted in the content area. You must follow the instructions. In general, the paper should be 2-3 pages. If you submit less than 2 pages, you will be penalized. The papers must be college-level that follows spelling and grammatical standards. Also, you must include the appropriate in-text citations and references.

The writing assignment will be an analysis paper to the article, video or TedTalk posted in the discussion board. You are expected to 1) evaluate your original response. You are expected to integrate all of this information, and analyze your own learning about the topic. The purpose of this paper is to close the loop.

You can use your original post for writing the assignment but you must go beyond copying and pasting. You are required to read and incorporate the feedback from your classmates. Your classmates will have incredible insights and knowledge. Finally, there will be time when I may ask you to answer specific answers. A common mistake is that you do not follow the instructions in the discussion board and/or you do not actually answer the questions that you were asked. I will hold you accountable for your participation in this manner.
