Personal Reply (15 pts):
After you have read the short article, reply to this discussion board answering these 3 questions:
- What are three of your take aways from these two online pages?
- Do you think field groins are a good, long term strategy to help in Oceanside? Why or why not?
- Do you have any proposals for other ideas on how to maintain the beach and prevent further beach starvation?
Put some thought into your responses and provide me a thorough answer to each question. You do not have to do peer replies this week, but if you find a peer’s response interesting, feel free to engage with each other! I encourage productive, respectful discussion!
You will have to post your own reply before you can see what your peers have written.
Peer Replies (5 points)
Here is your chance to interact with your peers. Reply to your peers posts and let them know what you think of their answer. Do you agree? Do you disagree? WHY? Please respond to 2-3 of your peers posts. Make sure your responses are thoughtful and grounded in scientific evidence, part of the points for the peer replies will be based on the thoughtfulness of your response. Show me you thought about it and debated both sides of this topic with yourself before replying to your peers!
Please remember to use proper netiquette here and be kind to one another, even in disagreement. Please reference the netiquette page and the rules for discussion board responses in the orientation module.
You will have two weeks to complete this discussion board. This discussion board assignment will be included in Module 5a and Module 5b. I recommend splitting up the work and doing your personal replies during week one and your peer replies during week two.
