DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: “NEW IDEAS”
After looking over Michael Hart’s list of influential people, and reading RGH #4 in which he explains his ranking of Isaac Newton tell us what you think.
v Do you agree with Hart’s ranking of Newton? Why or why not?
v Which of his reasons make sense to you and which don’t?
After posting your own views, make sure to come back and read the views of your classmates so you can make a post in response.
For an “A” (9-10 pts. weekly): a discussion grade of “A” will require you to have all your postings completed before the deadlines (which are noted on the Calendar), demonstrate excellent knowledge and understanding of the readings, responses (be tactful and nice) and questions for your classmates, and at least two quality postings per week spread out over the entire discussion period. At least one posting each week should be in response to your classmates’ postings. Your views, opinions, thoughts, must be thoughtful and supported with appropriate information from the readings or videos. If you express an opinion try to support it with material from our readings and videos and indicate the page number, if appropriate, where you found the support.
