Dialogue is Action

Announcements:

Welcome to The Forums!  Remember, you may post up to 150% of any required number of posts for credit. This summer, therefore, you can post up to 15 times for credit.  In general during the school year, five substantive posts are required by each Friday midnight. Have fun!

 

These Forums will vanish after Oct. 2:

  • Flatland

Forum check complete for 9/25/20. 

At this point, you should have 15 total posts for 100%. Remember that you can post up to 8x/week for up to 150% per week, if you need to catch up! On MiStar and elsewhere, know that any points beyond 105% total will be reduced to 105% (District limit on extra-credit!) However, I will begin to list here who has essentially enough extra posts to have one week (5 posts) of credit. So if you later need them, they are there for you! Extra posts do count for your total Canvas points, regardless. 

Forum Credits:

  • 3+ credits: Nicole, octavia, persephone
  • 2 credits: a2m0e0m2, abuzz, ahayo, aplitstudent, bunkymoo, Carla Tortelli, Delphine, Gil, MangoMan, SnowyYeti, username27, xwing37
  • 1 credit: AnonymousParrot, Conster, Jackson Von Habsburg, Madams43, savhoisington, stella, xmysterio,
Maintenance Points:
  1. The first few times you write, your post may be kept in moderation for my review. After that, posts should publish immediately. I just want to be sure who is posting and the substantive value of the post for people new to the forums!
  2. All posts should now be visible on all AP Lit boards. You should be able to post without problems (if you have a working chisnell.com username!). If this is not the case, please write mesteven.chisnell@royaloakschools.org
  3.  Remember that you must be logged in to post! If you do not see your chisnell.com username in the upper right of the page, you are not logged in and your "anonymous" post will not be approved. Are you one of the people who did not get a post approved? Maybe this was the reason. Contact me!
