In this paper, I will be evaluating the seven authors who contributed their opinion on an archived discussion forum focused on the issues of citizenship. The seven authors will be rated individually by the given marking criteria to identify in which way they could have improved their contribution to the forum discussion. The evaluation here follows.
I have given Mr. Dimmick a mark of 19 in his contribution to the discussion forum. He is one of the frequent contributors in the forum. Mr. Dimmick has raised important issues on the concept of citizenship with rightful resources to support his message. One of these is that globalization maybe influencing the judicial system of the United Kingdom and Europe as a whole. He was insightful on his response to the other members of the forum group on the need for campaigns to maintain citizen pride like self criticism techniques. It could be that as citizens, as a nation, or as a global community, loyalties are changing with the need for change. He has served as a big factor to the continuity of the discussion in the forum since two out of three of his contribution was in response to his fellow member's messages and insights. He may have improved his contributions though. I noticed that he had many resulting questions at the end of his messages. It initiates a lot of other discussions but there's only that. It would have been more helpful if he had given his own insights to his questions and in turn encourage other members of the forum to answer same questions.
Philip James Golding:
For Mr. Golding, I also gave a mark of 19 on his contribution to the forum. He may have contributed only twice in the discussion thread but he has introduced the idea that the information technology has and continues to have an effect on how citizens see their being a citizen of their nations, which were also discussed by following authors in the thread. Although he may have not used concrete sources on his implications, he has indicated the effect of the world wide web and globalization on how people think as citizens and as nations based on comparing what people and nations do in the present and in the past as history. Like Mr. Lambert, he was openly concerned with the thought that maybe one day the "global will" of the people might override their concerns as citizens first of their own nations. On his second message though, he has used relevant sources to support his insights in response to Mr. Trevena's message. Citizens and the government "are" concerned with the apparent democratic apathy happening in the democratic processes in the United Kingdom. I can say his messages were what I would say what I preferred reading because it was well thought of and he got his intended messages across.
I have given Mr. Trevena a mark of 16 on his contributions to the discussion. He was one of the frequent contributors in the discussion thread. Although his messages to the board were a big plus on the continuity of the discussions, they were mostly in response to the authors who originally introduced the issues. Mr. Trevena explained the issues further to illustrate his affirmations. Although Mr. Trevena should have had posted messages on not only what he agreed on but also on introducing
