NOTE: Students may use only the materials included in the module/course to answer the questions in their own words (do not copy directly). Students may not work with others or use other/outside online resources. Refer to the Syllabus for more information.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WbT7_HmB3NllfRZ1k… Link is for Chapter 2

Students must answer the questions included in each of the two parts outlined below using at least 1000 words total (approximately 500 words per Part; questions do not count towards the word count). Create a thread with answers in an “Original Post” (10 points) directly in the discussion forum (do not attach a PDF, Word, or other document). Following the Original Post, students will be able to read posts by other students and must write two “Response Posts” using 250 words or more each as a reply to others on the forum (2.5 points each; 5 points total). Responses can include comments or questions about any topics discussed in posts by other students; try to engage in a dialogue to expand and share perspectives on various subjects. Posts may be in paragraph or bullet point form but must use legible/reasonable black font (such as 12 pt. Times New Roman or Arial). Because there is a possibility of technical difficulties, students are strongly encouraged to not wait until the due date to submit their work and to double-check it was posted properly; additionally, students are encouraged to back up their work in a Word document or other safe place in case an error with Canvas arises.
