Good Questions             

A good question for a student to post in the discussion area is one that will require students to use their critical analysis skills.  

A good question will require the respondent to demonstrate both factual knowledge of the content and a comprehension of how the knowledge applies to the humans. 

It should not be a simple "look-up in the textbook" question or just a "what's your opinion?" question.  

Here is an example of the kind of question I am looking for from you.

How are Hindus like the Buddhists?

Why do people believe in a deity?

Why do people believe if there is no evidence or really stromg proof or argument to support the belief in a deity?

Is it possible for people to be moral if they are not religious?

Here are other examples of a good questions:

What might motivate any person to participate in a religion?

What possible meaning is there to religious claims about a non-physical realm?

You must post your class-discussion questions in the 'Discussion' area.) 

This question requires knowledge (What The Greeks at the time of Socrates were facing), comprehension (applying the knowledge to a personal example), and critical analysis (What are the issues involved in asking these questions?) 

I will evaluate the quality of your discussion questions, as well as the quality (and quantity) of your answers to the questions asked by me and the other students.
