Answering Stage

Important Information
Criteria for quality answers:
answers are posted on time
clear definition without possible misinterpretation, taking into consideration cultural differences
the answer always starts with repeating the question.
answers should reflect that research has been done and should consist of clear references, mention (re)sources used showing research that has been done
It's OK to use Google for research, yet stimulate students to process what they have found and mention the source of their finding by adding the URL or other source
post photos, diagrams, tables, presentations or others which can illustrate you research
the minimum number of words should be for a Research Based LC - 250 words in one answer
We wish you lots of learning and fun during this Learning Circle, Natasha Cherednichenko
