Please respond directly to Savanna and Liz’s posts separately. Respond to what was said in the students’ responses that you choose, point to specific details in the text(s) that support or undermine their conclusions, and/or ask a question raised by what they said. The initial responses (parts 1-3) are due on Blackboard by the end of the day on Monday, 10/3, 10/17, and 10/24, while the two or more replies (part 4) are due before class on Wednesday, 10/5, 10/19 and 10/26. In both your initial responses, and your replies, you are expected to directly engage with the details of the texts, by analyzing the ideas they reflect, presenting arguments, and identifying relevant evidence, not merely expressing feelings or impressions. The level of thoughtfulness shown in your replies will be taken into consideration in your participation grade.
