This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at if that is a problem.

Commenting - Notice and Investigate

Analyze other students' arguments and draw your own on conclusions, based on supporting evidence.


Add a comment to a Discussion that you agree or disagree with. Take a position and support it with evidence from an article that you have copied quotes from this week (in your tasks toward earning your Text-Dependent Research Badge). Use this Guide: Quoting a Source in a Comment.

In the Post Comment button here (on P2PU) add a link to your comment on Youth Voices. Do this before you click Yes, I'm done.

We encourage students to break out of these overly-structured "sentence starters" and create your own kinds of response. However, we do ask you to keep in mind the following guidelines:

  1. Speak directly to the student or teacher whose post you are responding to.
  2. Quote from the post or describe specific details (of an image or video).
  3. Relate the work to your own experiences or to another text, image, video, or audio that this one reminds you of.
  4. Be encouraging and generous with your remarks. End on a positive note.
