You Decide: Contract Dispute Group Discussion

·  Make sure you have a “group” topic showing this week. If not, e-mail your instructor ASAP. Review the You Decide Scenario.

·  Enter the group topic by no later than Wednesday to discuss the aspects of the scenario with your group. Your grade will be based on making at least six good, high-quality posts over at least three days to the topic and that reflects on the You Decide contract issues and that answers the questions posed at the beginning of the thread. Your instructor will NOT lead this thread—it will be up to the groups to run the thread. (Take this opportunity to get to know your classmates in your group!) You earn 75 points in this project, set up as follows:

·  (60 possible) Quality/quantity post points. You can earn up to 10 points for each high-quality post to the thread. A high-quality post will reflect on a learning tip from the You Decide project, provide significant factual background from the project that helps explain a learning point being made in the threads, pose an exceptional question that moves the group thread forward in a manner that creates more learning (while responding to another student’s question or thought), or will provide a definitive and analytical answer to one of the main questions in the thread. Faculty may deduct points for less-than-high-quality posts (however, making more than six posts will help “ensure” that you will achieve the full complement of points as you will get credit for each post you make, up to the top amount of 60 for this piece of the project).

·  (10 possible) Days posted. You must post on at least 3 days. You will get 3 points credit for each day you post. (“I agree”- or “Yeah, great post!”-style posts will not count for a “day posted.” The post must have some quality to count on the day). One point will be given to each student who posts his or her first post to the Group Project thread by no later than Wednesday.

(5 possible) Group points. How well your group works together will give you 5 possible points. Ways to get points: build on each other’s posts (i.e., read group members’ posts and respond), ensure all questions in the You Decide project topic beginning are covered (in other words, don’t duplicate group members’ work—build on their answers or answer another question). Ways to lose points: requiring instructor intervention in the group process, failing to work together, or ignoring each other’s posts. (This group grade will be the sam
