Each student should complete all parts of this assignment independently. The point of the discussion forum is not to produce the responses collaboratively, but instead to be able to respond to each others work. Students will be graded individually and on the quality of their contributions to the group discussion.
Please make sure your post is in the appropriate format, i.e. post directly to the site—no attachments please. Look (again) at the system requirements and basic technical policies that are listed in the modules and the syllabus. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have adhered to these technical standards and failure to do so will result in you receiving zero points for the assignment.
This is a college paper–you must adhere to the normal writing and style standards laid out in the writing guide. Poor writing will be penalized as much as good writing will be rewarded. When responding to other postings you are being evaluated based upon your insights and the ways you further the discussion. Simply responding to adhere to the deadline without achieving these goals will result in a failed grade.
The Internet has revolutionized how Americans receive their political news. How has the rise of digital news changed the American political and media landscape? Have these changes been largely negative or positive?
Make sure to couch your response based upon the material found in the reading and modules. Your initial post should be around 250-500 words in length. Your responsive posts should be around 250-300 words. You are being graded here on the quality of your insights and these should be critically evaluative.
After your initial post you are required to respond to two of your classmates postings. Your responses should include what you agree with or disagree with and why. Your responses may also include an elaboration upon what a classmate wrote.
Your initial posting is worth 50 points while your response posts are worth 50 points for a maximum 100 points.
Make sure that you have read and have understood the course plagiarism policies.
