number of questions per discussion topic have been presented to you.
You may answer any question and respond to any question you wish. You
must begin your own thread and respond to one other thread. All
discussions should be backed up with at least scholarly
resources (the textbook is NOT a scholarly source but something from a
University website would be). Depending on your question, you may want
to collect two dichotomous
views (i.e, one pro, one con), assess the strengths and weaknesses of
each, make your own stance on it, and use this to facilitate discussion
among your peers. Either way, your answers will not be marked for
position, only connections and level of understanding. Understand that
this is a public forum and you are to respect the opinions of others. Your ideas should be academic, not personal.
Please make sure that your responses/opinions are civil as well as backed up by at least one
sources of evidence. Sources can include (but are not limited to),
scholarly articles, historical texts, and/or news reports (do not use
your course textbook nor class notes as these are not acceptable
references). Referencing style should be APA.
This is meant to be a professional discussion so please write
professionally. You are to answer one of the following questions.
Please note the word count is the maximum but the number of references is a minimum.
