You will participate in 4 Group Discussion Board Forums with a few of your classmates. In the first module/week in which a forum is assigned, you must directly and sufficiently answer the forum prompt in a new thread containing at least 300 words. You must reference John, the Morris and Towns textbooks, and at least 2 outside sources in support of your argument.

Then, in the next module/week, you will substantially reply to 2 or more group mates’ threads. Each reply must contain at least 150 words, expand on the group mate’s thread, and add valuable input to the discussion relating to the forum prompt. Make sure all posts follow the rules of netiquette and are free of grammar and spelling errors.

This course utilizes the Post-First feature in all Discussion Board Forums.
