How to Qualify for Points in These Students Helping Students with History Forums

You can earn up to 10 points with each Unit, and help yourself and others at the same time.

Hereís How You Qualify for Points for the Unit

1.     Follow the Good Habits for Evidence in every posting and in every reply.
Examples:

a)    Donít state your opinions or use sources other than our textbook or our resources in the course. (If you want to talk about opinions or other sources, post in the Student Lounge.)
Tip: Instead, double check what you say in the textbook before you say it.

b)   Donít rely on your memory or what you think is common knowledge.
Tip: Instead, double check what you say in the textbook before you say it.

c)       Proof your work and run Spellcheck before you click Submit. Tip:  It is easier if you write your question (or answer) in a word processor and then copy and paste it into the message.

d)      Whenever you say something, give the exact page where your fellow student can find that information.

 

2.    Work so that other students can save time.

a)    Stay on the topic and on history. (If you want to talk about other things, post in the Student Lounge.)

b)   Be sure no one has already created a post by reading all of the Subject lines before you Create a Thread.
Your instructor removes the second post saying the same thing.

c)    Be sure no one has already replied to a post by reading any replies in that thread.
Your instructor removes the second reply saying the same thing.

3.    If you are replying to another personís post, click on his or her message and then click Reply. (Think of it this way: keep related stuff in the same pile.)

         If you are answering the page where the student can find something in the textbook, be sure to do what is in 1 d).

         If you found the information by using specific words with the index, it can help other students if you briefly say how you found it.

4.    If you are starting a question, click Create Thread and write in the Subject line something that will let the other students know if what they need is in your post.
