The first step in this process is to "brainstorm" your ideas and thoughts about the Triggering Question.

In this round we will only be responding to Trigger Question #1: "

In the Brainstorming phase there are no silly, foolish or off the wall ideas. All thoughts are welcome. This is the most creative part of the process so feel free to put any thought or idea. The more ideas the better. Later on we will do some filtering or thinning of the list but do not worry about that now.

  1. From this screen click on the Discussion Tab above.
  2. This will open a new screen.
  3. At the top of the page click on "New Post".
  4. Enter one or two words that describe your idea in the Subject Line.
  5. Under the "Message Section" write a few sentences that elaborate on your thought. This does not have to be extremely lengthy just enough to get your thought across.
  6. Click Save.
  7. If you have more than one idea or thought start over on New Post and repeat the process.
  8. Always remember to save at the end.
  9. HAVE FUN AND ENTER AS MANY IDEAS AS YOU CAN THINK OF!!!!! The more we have the better.

  1. It is OK and encouraged that you look over other members posts as this may give you an idea for a new post.
  2. During the brainstorming phase try not to "RESPOND" to other posts. You will get a chance to do that during Round 2 Clarrification.
  3. Do not make any judgmental comments about another's post (the moderater will have to remind you that all ideas here are welcome).
