A well-developed post is meaningful, shows relevance to the topic, and reflects your knowledge of the material. Well-developed posts demonstrate synthesis of the subject matter, extend the discussion by building on previous posts, and include proper source citations, when applicable.
Do NOT look up any information about the literature from the internet for your discussion posts. The entire idea is for you to discuss what you think it all means and to exchange ideas with each other, supporting your theories with evidence from the literature itself. There is no one right answer anyway when it comes to literature. Multiple interpretations are possible.

- Consider the mailbox as a symbol? What might it represent?
- Why does Nora leave behind not only her husband, but also her children? Wollstonecraft (2017) argues that “to be a good mother, a woman must have sense and also the independence of mind that is possessed by few women who are taught to depend entirely on their husbands” (p. 90). What does she mean by this, and how would Wollstonecraft see Nora’s actions at the end of the play?
