Class, I know you have until midnight tonight to finish your posts, but I wanted to give you a bit of initial feedback from the “José Chung” forum.
Tartuffe is primarily influenced by the Enlightenment’s debate of reason versus faith. What makes Moliere’s play so renowned is his implementation of satire to convey the period’s main argument. Obviously, various ideas of the Enlightenment are represented in Tartuffe and are intertwined, but I will be focusing on the satirical effect Orgon has in the play.
When writing a forum response, you might want to use one of these ideas to get you started. These will work also for essays in the humanities.
If you are in my World Literature 2 online this summer, I would like to remind you that the forum is an integral part of your grade.
Folks, the Faust grades are in, and they are pretty poor. Some of the class has dropped, and others have stopped doing the forums all together. However, those of you who hope to pass the class must post in the forums each week. This means more than posting a perfunctory question.
Here are the top five reasons for poor grades on forums. I’m about ready to give up on the forums in all classes and start assigning essays.
I have finished evaluating the forums for both of my World Lit sections, and I must say I disappointed. Once again (am I sounding like a broken record, yet?) I’d like to remind you that you cannot receive full credit for a forum unless you post more than once.
Be sure you understand how to write in the forum: that all forums are worth 10 points and that each post in a thread is worth a maximum of 5. What follows is an example of a strong forum post.
In posting to the forum — no matter what class you happen to be in — please keep the following in mind. Please note: a “forum” contains “posts” or, even more accurately, “threads.”
