Additional Key Elements of the Assignment:
Your Initial Post should occur in a timely manner (by the third day of the module for full timeliness points). Include the original questions along with your initial, informative post. Support your post with information from at least one reference and provide the complete source information (so that your peers can find the article if they wish). Bring in your own personal experiences, as applicable.
Your Subsequent Posts: Read through responses by peers and post responses to at least two classmates’ posts. Bring in ideas/comments and/or research not mentioned yet.
Remember: To receive full credit in this forum, you need to post a minimum of three quality posts (your own initial post, and responses to two classmates). Only one outside source is needed (in the initial post). But in any post, if you borrow ideas/information from other authors, give them credit for their work.
