How to handle citations and quotations
Informal or formal citations are expected throughout your discussion posts. Informal citations just let us know where you found the information that influenced your thoughts — apa formatting is not required in discussion posts (however, strict apa formatting IS required in your papers). But don’t just copy and paste a quotation and plop it into your work thinking it will show that you’ve read the material. Just because you quote something doesn’t mean you understand it. To show that you understand what you’ve read, paraphrase and summarize. Quotations should be used sparingly — when something has been said that is particularly enlightening or expressed in a particularly eloquent way or when it is a compelling argument that supports or refutes your own point of view. Otherwise, paraphrase or summarize, and then tell where you got your idea(s) in formal or informal citations. Generally speaking, you do not need to put definitions in quotations. If you need to define a term (and this isn’t always necessary), tell why you need to define it, then paraphrase or summarize a definition you want to use to support your case, and then cite the source. Don’t simply put the Northouse reference information at the bottom of all your posts. Show where in your post the author influenced what you are saying. No general reference at the bottom of your post is required. If you do decide to use a direct quotation, place it in context. You are the one making the points, not an outside resource, and the citation is there to support the points you are making. So frame each direct quote with context. Tell why this quotation is there, its significance to the topic, how it will enlighten the reader, what you want the reader to get from it. Just plopping a quote into your work without context and without summarizing or paraphrasing it doesn’t show a familiarity with the material. It doesn’t show that you know what you are talking about necessarily. It shows that you know how to copy and paste. Make quotations count! Use them sparingly for effect and for forceful support of your argument.

An important question you should know about
An important question I ask myself when grading discussion posts is . . Could this person have written these posts without reading the course material? If the answer is yes, your score will not be as high as it could have been if you had been making connections to what you learned from the course material and making them relevant to the discussion topic.

Please write in paragraphs
Please write your discussion posts in paragraphs, with one topic per paragraph. A strong paragraph has an introductory topic sentence and ends with a sentence that transitions to the next topic/paragraph. This makes long discussion posts easier to read. Part of your writing score will depend on your ability to write in paragraphs.
