Iâ€™ve seen HUNDREDS of these clichÃ©s on discussion boards in EVERY class Iâ€™ve taught online â€“ SO MUCH Iâ€™m convinced someone has a bucket of them and is just handing them out at Halloween. Santa Claus, maybe?
in my effort to promote real â€“ even wonky â€“ discourse, just note that I read past them and look for what is actually being said: the meat of the discussion, as it were.
Please humor me on this â€“ discussion works best when everyone is jumping in â€“ including those who have incomplete thoughts or whacked out theories.
Without some stupid conjecture amongst the academic stuff thereâ€™s not much to build off – and learning gives way to â€œI already know that.â€
