From my actual syllabus:

"Eight discussion topics will be posted... you need to comment and then respond to other students' comments at least once.These comments must be substantive..."

I get credit for doing what I have been doing on the internet every day for 7 years? OKAY.

(This is probably just like any other syllabus in an online course, but it's new to me, so...)

Also: If you have a really exciting suggestion of an AUTOBIOGRAPHY I should read for my paper in this class (Human Growth & Development) speak up. The given options are currently:

Gifted Hands by Ben Carson
Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt
Laughing in the Dark by Patrice Gaines
Dreams from my Father by Barack Obama
Easier Said by LeRoy Battle

It says I can petition to do a paper on something else though so have at.
