Questions about Answers

  1. Are there other relevant readings, from this week or another, that could be enlisted to support the answer? Do all of the readings cited serve as good evidence? Could the answer point to more specific parts of the evidence to bolster claims?
  2. Is additional research needed to confirm claims or make claims more specific?
  3. Does the answer take into account the “point of view” of the readings cited?
  4. Is the strength of each claim calibrated to match the extent of the evidence?
  5. Does the paragraph directly answer the question at hand? (E.g., if the question is about change over time, is that what the answer is about? Or does the answer address something else—like causation—not contained in the question?)

Discuss how the “answer” you’ve been assigned could be improved or expanded. Then log into the website and make edits directly on the paragraph. Don’t worry about overwriting or deleting parts of the existing answer; the original text will still be accessible later.
