Welcome to our first of many weekly discussion boards!</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px;"><span style="color: #000000;">Discussion boards are an essential part of an online learning community as we exchange ideas, experiences, insights, and writing tips.  Timely participation in a discussion (remember, there is <strong>no</strong> <strong>credit</strong> for late res</span>ponses) significantly enhances your learning experience and allows you to make connections with other virtual learners.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px;">In th<span style="color: #000000;">is 30-point discuss</span>ion board (graded according to the "discussion board rubric" attached), please <strong>introduce yourself to the class</strong>.  Share some basic information about yourself such as your home school and perhaps what brought you to online learning.  Share some "fun facts" about yourself -- bucket list goals, favorite things, important people, summer highlights, how your friends describe you, idiosyncracies, traits that make you unique, or other attention-getting details.  Then upload a picture that complements the text you have added.  Use the<a href=""> "file" button on the left side</a> of the discussion post box to <strong>upload a picture</strong>.   </span><span style="font-size: 14px;">Let's see just how engaging this discussion can be!  I <em>know</em> you all have a lot to share, so your entry should be around 100-150 words.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px;">Remember to proofread and use standard English.  Discussion boards are not the place to lapse into text language.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.4;">Finally, </span><strong style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.4;">respond to at least two of your peers</strong><span style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.4;"> at different times in the next few days. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14px;"><span style="color: #ff0000;"><strong> </strong></span></span></p>
