  • Step #1
    - Share with the group one (1) great interview and a great answer to that question.
    - It is okay if you can't think of one.  I encourage you to do some research in the library and online and then post the link to where you found it.
    - Make sure to check earlier posts so you don't accidentally post something someone has posted.  Make sure yours is original!
  • Step #2
    - Read what your classmates have posted.
    - Post responses to at least two (2) other posts.
    - While you can post several times your suggestions for improving the English usage (grammar, spelling, punctuation) in the original posts by classmates, none of these postings count as your two (2) required.
    - But, secondary posts that suggest improvements to phrasing the question and/or answer will count to your two (2) required posts.
  • Be kind with your suggestions to classmates, please.
