Instructions are VERY IMPORTANT

Please answer the following question in this word document. Submit the document when you post your answers in a thread on the Discussion Forum. You MUST upload a word document. This will avoid complications in formatting and will allow me to track changes when providing feedback.

 

You must ONLY use the required readings and the required videos/films. Outside sources are not permitted unless they’re provided in addition to the required readings. If any additional readings are provided, they must be peer reviewed and the PDFs of the readings must be attached to the thread you create for your responses. Of course, this is only if you provide additional readings.

 

Regardless of what you cite (e.g., Alvarez and Bachman only or Alvarez and Bachman and an additional source), provide the author(s), year of publication, and pages used in parentheses within each response to the following questions. Example of citation: (Alvarez and Bachman, 2020, pages 55-56). You should cite other required readings (journal articles) in addition to the textbook when necessary.

 

Even though I’m telling you what sources to you, you must still provide these in-text citations. Do not quote the text—explain it in your own words. And NEVER cite my PowerPoint notes or audio lectures!

 

Only answers that are properly cited will be graded. I will not accept answers that are not cited at all. Submit a word document, not a PDF or .pages document. I will only accept word documents.

 

This assignment is worth 3% of your overall grade.

  • Your response to question 1 is worth .75pts. Your response to question 2 is worth 1.25pts.
  • .50pts are allocated toward at least 2 comments on other student threads. You must provide something of substance—do not just state whether or not you agree with them or whether or not you liked their response(s). Write at least 4 sentences. Please review the syllabus guidelines for writing discussions and commenting on student discussion threads.
