Grand Total 1006

Ms. X., you're 9 points shy of getting the full 700 points on the points board. Concerning your revision, you'll want to cite your source on that 2007 research that indicates 10,000,000 victims (this year?). Good work, otherwise, harnessing those quotes.  Your total score for the class, so far, is 931 points.  After you complete your presentation, that will raise to 1006, which will be an A for the course.

Ms. X, since your bibliography is unfinished, I've given you a 50 out of 80 for it.  When you complete it, I'll revise your score.  You should find at least another two resources that help you discuss the ethics of your project.

Good work catching up, Ms. X.  The journal on cybersex was a bit light on tangible material.  You'll want to draw more from the resource the activity provides in answering something like this.

Want to make up week 7?

Just updated your discussion postings for week 6.  Will catch up on the other updates later today.  In the future, don't make me have to go back three weeks in the posting of your points.  It's more meaningful to your studies and for the other students if you're a living part of the dialogue rather than an archivist of it.

Good to see your return to the discussion board, Ms. X.  We've missed you these past two weeks.  Where have you been?  You've presently got a zero for your bibliography, but that will change when you turn one in.

Ms. X, where you been all week 6 and 7?

Nice reflections for week 5, Ms. X.  I especially like how active you are engaging your classmates.  You put real thought into your comments, and it shows.  Try this, though -- start ending some of them with a question.  I think this is just the class to start giving feedback on thoughts like yours.  I bet you'll end up having some long conversations if you keep inviting your dialogue partner to resume the dialogue.

Week three updated, Ms. X.  Thanks for catching up and for reminding me to post the points.

Ms. X, not too bad on the journal response for week 4 -- it was difficult reading, after all -- but your response could have benefited greatly had you incorporated a greater discussion of the material within the articles that you read in focusing on your theme of authenticity.

Ms. X, since you didn't respond to the week 3 readings on Ong, you'll want to make sure you read what others wrote about it (and especially my responses since often the student missed the point on the relationship between orality and literacy).  That'll put you in good stead for our present week's study of literary theory.

Ms. X, on your week 3 journal response, try to include some specific quotes from the reading and follow them up with a short analysis.  Your journal from week 2 could have benefited from that sort of development.  In your journal, you jumped from mentioning the theme of the readings to your own personal frustrations with plagiarism without much discussion of the points made in the texts themselves.  Also, you made some great responses to your classmates this week, but you didn't do any of the activities.  Each week, you should do at least one -- they're designed to help flesh out the topic for you.

Ms. X, here's the key: DB means discussion board.  The first number indicates how many points you received for the journal, and the second number indicates how many points you received for your responses to your classmates.  I tally the best five of any responses you make according to the rubric provided in the week 2 points description.  Letters 'a,' 'b,' and 'c' indicate how many points you received for your points board activities.  They are counted in order of your submission, so if, say, letter A scored less than ten, you'll know which one fell short of a complete response.  This first week, you scored a 10 for every response you gave, but in future weeks, you might not.  The reasons will be provided in the shape of my comments on each entry.  You can raise any score merely by interacting with my comments on the discussion board.  Finally, if you can create an activity for us based on the theme of the week, you'll get up to 10 bonus points each week, and I'll add your activity to the points section of WebCT so that your fellow classmates will have an opportunity to engage it in pursuit of their own points.
