After this initial response, reply and respond to other students’ answers as described below at least 250-300 words.

Then respond to a minimum of three other student’s postings. To reply to another student’s posting, submit a threaded reply (“Reply” button) to that student’s message. Each reply should be a minimum of 100 words. So a short answer response such as “Good point” or “That’s wrong” is not an acceptable response to earn any points.
