Discussion Assignments

Discussion assignments are prompts that your teacher can assign to you. By participating in discussions, you can reflect on learning, share ideas and opinions, or ask and answer questions. Discussions may require you to answer individual questions or give multiple responses to an ongoing discussion.

Assigned discussions are available in your Assignments list.
