Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements
Post your thoughts on topics covered this week. You may focus on any topic you find interesting. Use legitimate reference sources to support your views and comments. Legitimate source include the textbook, academic journals, reliable websites like CNN, MSNBC, NPR, BBC, and Mexico News Daily. Do not use blogs or unsubstantiated sources.
Once you post your own comments you will be able to access your classmates’ posts. You are to respond to at least one of your classmates. Identify who you are responding to.
Open Discussion Board points are earned when you post something relevant on the site. This site is designed so that students may discuss things that are in the news and/or may not be covered in depth in the chapters, or that are interesting and topical. Here are some ideas:
- You may have read an article on a website that relates to the class in some way. Post the website and give a summary of the article. Tell us why it is relevant.
- Contribute to a post that is already there. Add significant additional information or a rebuttal, supported by reference material.
- If you see a news report on TV, YouTube, or other media, site it and discuss it.
While you have a lot of freedom on the Open Discussion Board, you still must support your statements with academic sources.
