Discussion Boards are interactive, participatory learning experiences where students respond to a question or prompt which stimulates their thinking and reflecting on the issues raised by the prompt. In this course, you must participate in 2 Discussion Board forums, one in Module/Week 1 and the second in Module/Week 6. Your participation in the Discussion Board will take the form of your reading the prompt and then responding by creating a thread that addresses the questions/issues raised by the prompt. After you have posted your own thread in response to the prompt, you must log back in and respond to the threads of at least two of your classmates, affirming where you agree, stating your reasons why you disagree, and/or offering new insights or raising new questions unanticipated in your classmates’ threads.
Your thread must be a minimum of 400 words, not including footnotes and bibliography. Your two replies must be a minimum of 200 words for each reply. Any sources used, including assigned readings, videos, and narrated PowerPoint presentations, must be properly documented in current Turabian format. You may use either footnotes/bibliography or parenthetical citations/bibliography, but not both in the same post. Correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation must be used. See the Discussion Board Grading Rubric for the grading criteria.
Please read the attached case study as preparation for your participation in Discussion Board Forum 1.
Submit your forum thread by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Thursday of the module/week for which it is assigned, and your two forum replies are due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of the same module/week.
