You will be graded on grammar, spelling, and thoughtfulness of response. <em>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.</em><br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> Posting "I agree" or a 1 sentence response will not earn your credit.
