Academic Discussions: What the Heck Should I Say???

Discussion Forums!

Consider using the following structures in your replies to other students:

  • "I agree / disagree with (((idea))) because (((new idea)))."
  • "I can connect / relate to (((idea))) because (((new idea)))."
  • "I'd like to add onto (((idea))). (((New Idea)))"
  • "Building on (((idea))), (((new idea)))."
  • "I'm thinking from another point of view that (((new idea)))."

Notice that all these structures contribute a NEW IDEA by somehow jumping off of someone else's idea!
