Please keep in mind that your professor is looking for the answers to have detail, though, and an indication of understanding the issue(s)/topic(s) at hand. Responses should be personalized; however, they need to reflect an understanding of the concepts and theory from the text. Your professor is looking for you to go above and beyond the question. Keep in mind that short and simplistic answers will receive little to no credit. Your professor is looking at the content of your answers as well as your ability to write well and expand on your answers. Students can take the discussion anywhere they would like as long as it relates to the course and the readings.
