Discussion Questions Students will be expected to submit one discussion
Do:
■ Asking a question that contains content that spans much of the article or reading.
■ Integrating more than one of the assigned articles into your question when multiple
articles are assigned.
■ Integrating information outside the reading (e.g., previous material discussed in class or
everyday experiences).
■ Ensuring there are no spelling or grammatical errors.
■ Asking questions that require discussion. Your question should make the reader think and
evaluate the topic further.
■ Be specific and concrete. Once you have stated your basic idea/question, tell us why you
think this. Are there some data in the readings that led you to your idea/question? If so,
tell us about it in concrete terms.
■ Don’t waste half of your writing space rehashing the findings of the study. We all read it,
so just tell us the specific findings or points you are interested in talking about.
○ Don’t:
■ Don’t write a question concerned exclusively with a point made on the first page of the
paper, chapter or article (your instructor will strongly suspect you did not read the entire
article/paper/chapter).
■ Never ask, “What has been published since this paper was published?” Professors see this
question frequently so it fails to distinguish you as a thoughtful student.
■ Don’t ask questions that sound like they would appear on an exam (e.g., “What singlesubject design was used?” “Who were the authors?”
■ Don’t ask questions about whether or not the subjects’ gender affected their behavior.
These are legitimate concerns (sometimes) but it is such a common question that it fails
to set you apart as a thoughtful student.
■ Don’t ask questions that have “yes” or “no” answers.
