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. To make your response thoughtful, use the PEA Method. State your point, provide evidence to support it, and tell us why your evidence proves your point.</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 style="line-height: 16.8px;"><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong><span style="font-size: 14px;">Questions:</span></strong></span></p> <p style="line-height: 16.8px;"><span style="font-size: 14px;">1.
