The second is to write a question to me via the Canvas messages "Inbox" feature. This will require going to the Inbox (located in the main menu to the left).
To interact with colleagues in the course, make connections with each other, and allow others to read what you are thinking in response; to foster communication with me by asking a question that you have at this point.
Return to the Introductory Discussion Forum, read what your colleagues have written, and then choose at least two colleagues to whom to reply. These replies do not have to be extensive, but they should help your colleagues see that you've read their posts with some care and attention and that you have a thought or idea or experience to connect to their post. Be supportive and curious when you reply.
Once you have done the above, go to the Canvas messages "Inbox" and click on the "Compose a message" icon within Inbox. In the message field, write a question to me. This question can be about the course and how it will operate. This can be a question to me about me and my background, research interests, and current projects. Or it can be a question related to teaching, writing, the teaching of writing, and so forth.
Both parts of the assignment should be completed fully, following the directions
Both the messages and the question should show to care and thoughtful attention previous posts and/or the course material
The writer uses the occasion to work on interacting with colleagues and with me.
This assignment is due June 27 before 11:59pm EDT. I will respond to the question (or questions) you pose by the end of the day on June 28.
Can't change a rubric once you've started using it.
