2: Reply to at least 3 other students’ essays (ideally essays that other students haven’t yet commented on) offering constructive criticism on their response. Negative critiques will not be tolerated. (Up to 75 points/25 each).
3: Reply to the critiques of your response. (Up to 75 points).
The discussion closes on June 13. It is to your – and your classmates’ – advantage not to put this off until the last moment.
