Transcript of Let's Discuss it!

Let's Discuss it!
Tell Me Something...
Share at least one thing about yourself that others might find interesting or surprising. (Do you have a hidden talent? Have you had an extraordinary experience?) Post something fun....yet appropriate :-)
Objectives:
WHY do we discuss?
WHAT are class discussions
HOW Much is this worth
Rubric
Looking at examples
Plagiarism on discussion board
Quiz!

Why do we discuss?
Simulating a real classroom environment
To get a better a understanding and looking t multiple perspectives
Questions? Concerns? This is where you discuss!
We take the information that we learn in the course (NOTES) and use those as examples and details to support your point of view.
What do we discuss?
Discussions are 20% of your grade! Take them seriously!
Each lesson your goal is to earn 20pts. Respond to 1 or 2 questions (or even all)
Use specific examples and details from the course
The purpose is to show why ideas/people/events are significant

One thing that is interesting about me is my older brother played professional football for 7 years. His teams: Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys, and ended with the Bengals. An extraordinary experience that I have had, was going to SuperBowl XLI (the Bears lost :-( )
Mrs. Warford's Discussion Post
Earning Points
Pick your poison:
Copper
(5 points)
Bronze
(10 points)
Silver
(15 points)
Gold
(20 points)
You choose any combination of these to respond to, and your goal is to earn 20 points.
Just attempting them does not give you the points. You need to fully answer the question.
Responses need to be in complete sentences and need to show the significance of the topic.
This means that a single sentence response will not be good enough
.
DO NOT
list your answers. Posts should be written like you would write a paragraph
.
It is okay to respond to another student’s post, but you need to further the discussion.
Simple “I agree” responses will not get you any points.
Preparation
Here are some tips to set yourself for the most success with these discussions:
Pay attention to my notes in the first activity of every lesson. You will notice that I have given you the discussion questions.
Take note of the questions, and try and take notes of details that would help you answer the questions.
By doing this you will have almost answered the question before getting to the discussion.
Detailed notes from the coursework and adobes will help with discussions and every other aspect of this open note course.
LABEL
the type of question that you are responding to before giving your answer.
Tell me if you are responding to gold, silver, bronze, or copper.

Rubric
Examples:
Copper
:
Identify what nations were in both the Triple Alliance and the Triple Entente. (5 points)
“Copper: Triple Alliance was between Austria Hungary, Germany, and Italy. The Triple Entente was between Russia, Britain, and France.”

What not to do:
Triple alliance: germany, austria hungary and italy. Triple entente: russia, britain and france.

Bronze:
What is the idea of total war, and how did it affect the home front? (10 points)

Bronze: Total war meant using all the resources available at time for the war effort to win and support the soldiers. That meant people of that country in total war would have to ration there food and supplies so those fighting would have what they needed to keep going in the war. Even women on the home front took up jobs that men often performed such as manufacturers, nursing wounded soldiers that showed women were capable of doing there part.”

What not to do:
A total war is what it says. It affects all nations
Examples Cont'd
Silver:
Describe how the Zollverein would create a sense of unity amongst the German states. (15 points)
“(silver) Zollverein would create unity for a few reasons. The first is simply because they did "unify" the trades. Free trade amongst the people would have boosted the economy, and making everyone in a slightly better situation thanks to those around them. The second reason ties in to that because removing a tax on a item is like trading in one single country. Feeling like a unified people brought unity amongst the states.”

What not to do:
The zollverein created unity for all of the things that it did for the people.
Gold: Given the challenges following unification in Italy,
analyze
why Italians were driven to emigrate to more nations with greater opportunity. (20 points)
“Gold: As much as Italy wanted to be unified, it had problems once this happened. Since the groups had been separated for so long, they didn't all accept the reunification. For example, some didn't like that Rome had become the capital in 1871, and resented being governed by it. The Catholic Church didn't recognize Italy as a legitimate nation and the pope prohibited the Catholics from voting. There was poverty through out the country, this led millions of Italians to emigrate to the America's. With poverty, unemployment and rising taxes, rioting in the towns happened a lot. So even though the Italian's got the reunification they wanted, their country had so many problems. They needed to catch up with the rest of Europe in industrialization, social reform and foreign policy. By the late 1800's they started to take steps to fix all this, but was to late for some Italian's who chose to emigrate to other countries.”

So, where do you get the details?

Plagiarism
I know you have heard this before, but I still see it, so you still get to hear it…
Plagiarism is to copy another’s work, without giving credit, and claiming the work as your own.
This could come from a website or a classmate’s work. Either way, it is the same.
Plagiarized posts get one warning through the messenger system, are hidden from sight, and given a 0. Future plagiarized posts just get a 0 and are hidden.
As you have seen here, there is no reason to plagiarize as you are given the information.
Show me what you have learned, and bring your thoughts to the discussion board with the necessary details to back it up!
