Now that you have read the Time Magazine article, what are your initial thoughts regarding the policy of Acceleration? Do you feel that it is an acceptable practice? Why or why not? Do you have any personal experience with Acceleration? How is Acceleration viewed in your school?
After you have read the materials for this Module, you will come back to this link and comment / revise your initial posting.
Additionally, you will be responding to at least two of your group members.
For this Module, the class has been divided into groups. Please make sure that you are posting to the correct group. This will allow you to focus on what your group members are saying / thinking. The hope is that the smaller groups will encourage lively discussion about the materials.
The Module ONE Discussion is worth a total of 50 Points.
You will earn 10 Points for each of the 4 required postings.
The final 10 points will be awarded for postings that are well written, thought provoking, connected to the Module Readings and Materials, and extend the conversation. You should focus on synthesis of the materials rather then simply summarizing.
YOUR INITIAL POSTING SHOULD BE POSTED NO LATER THAN AUGUST 31ST AT NOON TO ALLOW YOUR FELLOW GROUP MEMBERS TO COMMENT ON YOUR POSTINGS.
