1. Submit one discussion question week. For week, submit one thoughtful question for the class to discuss. What is a thoughtful question? Thoughtful questions generate discussion and provoke thought. Focus on generating a question that sparks discussion/conversation about an issue/debate, a comparison/contrast between different perspectives, how we might brainstorm to solve a methodological issue, other ways to explain the data or go about researching a question; these kinds of questions will lead to a productive and thought provoking class discussion rather than clarification kinds of questions or “Does anyone know…” kinds of questions. Do notsubmit a question that focuses on clarification or “Does anyone know…” as your discussion question. It is okay to tack these kinds of questions on to your submission of the discussion question, but these kinds of questions should be in addition to your thought provoking discussion question. The discussion question is due bySunday at midnight. This will allow your classmates to have time to read the question (please take a few minutes to read all of the questions posted by your classmates) and respond to them. Submit the questions via Blackboard.
