You are required to participate in online discussions with an original initial post of no less than 180 words (excluding in-text citations and listed references). Use APA in-text citations and provide fully referenced sources to lend scholarly support to your comments, remarks, or positions taken in your initial discussion posts. Address your classmates by name when responding to their posts. You must also respond to the initial post of at least two classmates or points will be deducted from your overall score for the Discussion in that module.
Do not post your comments as an attachment or use emoticons or inappropriate lower case letters in your posts. Do not cut and paste from the Internet. Your posts must be scholarly and professional and void of the use of wording any member of the class may consider “patently offensive”.
