Though this is social, it is still considered a formal setting.</span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: 14px;"> Your initial post is worth 2 points. You will be graded on grammar, spelling, and thoughtfulness of response.</span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: 14px;"> You can earn 2 more points (for a total of 4) for posting 2 more times in the discussion board. The posts can be questions or thoughtful comments.</span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: 14px;"> Posting, "I agree" or a 1 sentence response will not earn your credit. You'll need to explain your thoughts thoroughly.</span></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14px;">Questions:</span></strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px;">1.
