When replying to your classmates’ posts:
Read your classmate’s post and reply to no less than two of your classmates and a question.
Your question should be one of the following three types:
• Clarification Based: This kind of question helps the writer by asking your peer to clarify points that you think could be more fully explained.
• Evidence question – When a writer states something as fact rather than personal opinion, your peers argument is stronger if they cite evidence that the fact is true. Facts can be evidenced, in approximate order of strongest evidence to weakest, (1) by citing trustworthy data, (2) by citing the opinions of experts, (3) by citing repeatable personal experience, or (4) by citing common opinion. This kind of question helps the writer by asking for evidence if the student states something as fact but doesn’t cite evidence.
• Hypothetical question – This kind of question helps the writer by asking your peer to test their argument by applying it to a situation that you specify.
