SPAN100 Spanish I AMU week 1 forum Greetings and Introductions American Military University assistance is available at Domyclass.
Read the article on introductions in Spanish-speaking countries found in the Reading and Resources section in the Lessons tab for week one. Discuss any experience you have with such greetings and how your introduction customs compare with those in the reading. Have you ever been in a situation where the introduction was culturally different than what you are used to? Was it uncomfortable? Do you like/dislike other types of greetings that you have been exposed to? Why or why not?
Post to the Forum to introduce yourself and to discuss the topic. Always read my initial thread, then to post your “initial” comments, click “post new thread” or simply reply to mine…Then read a number of student posts and choose two or more to reply to. Click “reply” for the replies to others.
Your “Initial” post (your response to the reading and my prompts or questions) should be a minimum of 250 words by Thursday each week.
Your “reply” posts should be a minimum of 100+ words each and should respond to specific information discussed in other student posts, due Sunday each week. Your replies should stimulate and encourage further discussion.
Please give relevant examples and always refer to the reading in some way, bringing a specific example or supporting/conflicting idea to what you are discussing. Treat these as college-level writing assignments, not e-mail messages. (In other words, don’t get sloppy or be too casual!) Proofread your work and use the spell check every time along with proper capitalization and punctuation. For example do not use things like LOL which is nothing you would write on a paper and turn in were this a physical classroom.
Please look over the rubric below for how I grade these forums. I am in the forums daily and will grade as I go, so if I read your post, I will post points for it even if you have not yet replied to other students, so don’t be alarmed if you see 50/100 as a score. It only means I have read your post but not your replies yet, and will add points for the replies once I have had the opportunity to read them!
Thanks! I look forward to meeting you all.
