Discussion Post Response #2_520

Respond to classmate initial post. 275 words, 

First of all — DO NOT just write “yep, I agree” — that’s not helpful.

Be very careful with phrases that mean “I feel” — feelings are real, and usually based on something — so, when you start with “I feel” — continue with “because …..” Chances are pretty good that you’ll see the “I feel” part isn’t necessary.

When you say “I agree” — follow it up with a clause beginning with “because” — that will further explain your position.

Don’t shy away from conflict or objections in your responses — that’s what’s interesting.

I’m looking for your original thoughts — that means that I want to see what else you think on the topic. So, extend your ideas a bit — push the envelope, take risks, try out ideas that you don’t believe in. This also means that you can’t just copy and paste stuff.

Also, include references and citations. APA Format.
