    P.S: Email from my professor concerning me getting bad grade for the past 4 weeks for the weekly forum assignment.
    Professor comment:
    "One of the reasons that your grades for the forums are where they are is because you are not actually using the class material to address the forum question. Your last forum post doesn't refer to any of the class readings at all, so it is hard for me to assess whether you are even reading them. Have a good thanksgiving." Please read and cite the forum reading: Look for the attachment mentioned - LESSON Alternative Approaches: Feminism, and Critical Theory
    Last week Instructor Comment:
    "You should focus on the forum question. Also, make sure to use the readings that you were assigned for some of your references."
    Expert, please when responding to my weekly post cite the weekly material (The reading), I will appreciate that. Please look for the reading & resources attachment.

    Dear Student,
    Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are asking for help in putting together a discussion on critical theories. Since you are being asked to utilize ideas from your resources, it is a good thing that you have listed them here. I see that your professor is marking down your answers because it uses outside resources. This shouldn't be the case if you are completing the task anyway; in fact you should be applauded for your initiative. Be that as it may however, it's always good to balance things with using resources from your class. Since you listed them here, it should be easy to cite from them. If it's modern critical theories you are expected to critique, just feature on both 3. I suggest using this outline:

    1. On Modern critical theory approaches - 100 words
    2. Feminism - 100 words
    3. Post-structuralism - 100 words
    4. Neo-Marxism - 100 words
    5. Opinion - 100 words

    This should cover what you need. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies. Just in case, I have also used citations other than which was listed so you can study further.
