INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISCUSSION BOARD POSTS
Sometimes a discussion board thread will contain its own prompt. In that case, follow the
instructions stated there. Other times, I will ask you to make an “original post,” or to respond to
someone else’s post.
For original posts or responding to someone else’s post: please post a short paragraph (five
sentences minimum) in which you make an argument about some aspect of a text we have
looked at that week. This is to show that you have read, understood, and thought critically about
the assigned material. Your argument need not be about the text as a whole; it can simply be
about any specific aspect or larger idea that you found to be important in the text. Remember that
a good argument starts with a strong claim and is backed up by specific evidence.
You are encouraged to make connections to ideas or situations outside of the text. For instance, if
you are making a claim about how the use of a certain piece of technology limits a character’s
freedom in Brave New World, you might compare that piece of technology to an analogous one
from our own society in order to analyze the real-world consequences of your claim. You can
also make connections to other texts we have read; you can make connections to texts we have
not read as long as you provide enough information to contextualize your comparison.
Alternatively: You might want to post a question that introduces some ideas for discussion.
Such a question should not ask random, trivial facts about the text; rather, the purpose of your
question is to potentially generate a thought-provoking discussion that addresses what is at stake
in terms of the larger topics and themes that the text discusses. In other words, the answer to the
question that you ask should not be something that can be found within the text itself (e.g. do not
ask things like: Where does the story take place?). Your question should be contextualized with
quotes from the text that help demonstrate how you arrived at your question.
You do not necessarily have to provide an answer to your own question.
Please note: This assignment is NOT asking you to summarize the text. It is also not asking for
your opinion on the text. You are being asked to focus on a specific aspect of the text and explain
its importance outside of the text. That is, what is the significance of the aspect you chose to
write about? What are some real-world connections or implications that you can make based on
the aspect you chose?
Grading: This assignment is worth ten points. There are five criteria through which your
response will be evaluated, worth two points each. Below is the rubric for how you will be
graded on this assignment. I have also included a template and an example that you can follow if
you get stuck.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISCUSSION BOARD POSTS
Rubric:
Originality – Does your response show that you have thought deeply about the text? Are you
making creative connections to other texts or larger concepts?
Coherence – Do you address one specific idea throughout? Are all parts of your paragraph
necessary and relevant?
Evidence – Does the evidence you chose directly support your stance? Is it integrated well into
the paragraph?
Accuracy – Have you gotten the facts about the text correct? Are the things you are saying true?
Grammar – Are you using proper spelling, punctuation, and word choice? Have you included a
parenthetical citation in MLA format?
Example argumentative paragraph
General format:
Claim: What are you arguing?
Context: What relevant events are occurring in the text? (Pretend your reader has never read the
text before; give enough information so that your evidence makes sense, but do not summarize
the whole story.)
Evidence: Which example from the text supports your claim?
Explanation: What does the quote mean? Put it in your own words.
Analysis: Why is your evidence significant? How does it support your claim, specifically?
Conclusion: Restatement of the claim/argument in different words. Possibly transition into next
paragraph.
**Tips for coming up with a strong claim:
• When reading or watching something, take note of what is important.
• Ask yourself: in general terms, what is this story about? The answer to this question
should be an abstract noun such as: happiness, freedom, power, etc.
• Ask yourself: What is this story saying about the general idea that you chose? For
instance, if you choose to write about happiness, ask yourself: What is this story saying
about happiness?
• The answer to that question can serve as the claim for your argument. Remember that
claims should be debatable, meaning that there is more than one side you can support.
For instance: In a society, it is acceptable to allow the suffering of a few people as long as
it brings about the happiness of many people.

Example based on Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Claim – The conch shell represents civility and order, which are necessary for living and being
productive.
Context – When the boys first arrive on the island, Ralph finds the conch and blows it to call an
assembly.
Evidence: Once the boys are assembled, Ralph says, “‘I’ll give the conch to the next person to
speak. He can hold it when he’s speaking….And he won’t be interrupted’” (Golding 33).
Explanation: So, one function of the conch is that it determines whose turn it is to talk.
Analysis: This shows that the conch has the power to organize the boys and establish rule and
law where there otherwise would be none.
Conclusion: Through its ability to make the boys listen, obey, and decide, it is clear how the
conch symbolizes authority and has a civilizing force over the boys, thereby aiding their survival
on the island.
