M6 Discussion 2: Acceleration Debate
Please read Hardmanâ€™s Chapter 15 – Human Exceptionality: School, Community and Family (2017, 12th edition), sections on Acceleration and Learning Through Social Media (How Grade Skipping Changed Everything) before starting this discussion.
Discussion requirements: Based on research presented in the textbook, and conducted on your own, decide where you stand in the â€œacceleration debateâ€ â€“ present your side, discuss why, and provide evidence (findings, experience) to support your discussion. Please try to refrain from using too many verbatim (word-for-word) statements from the text or Internet to “represent” your viewpoints.
Please include 1 question at the end of your main post
Important Note:Please be sure to cite all resources and paraphrase what you read rather than simply “cut & paste” — plagiarism is a serious matter.

- Your main post should be substantive â€“ at least 200 words, not including the Forum questions or references. Each discussion response/reply to me or others must have a minimum of 125 words, spell checked, well written and citing references in support of arguments. Active participation is required.
- In your reply to others: You could include additional research info (don’t just share a website link, explain what you found, summarize the info, and then share the website link), or, provide a few suggestions based on the class reading/additional reading, or explain why you agree or disagree with your classmate. Always provide at least ONE citation from the reading to ‘support’ your discussion.
Please use app citation and include intext citations
