After reviewing this week’s readings you will need to compose a discussion board post of at least 1 page with a reference that addresses the guiding questions listed below. Remember that your post should not simply be quick answers to each of the questions. In other words, review each question, reflect on the answers, and compose a singular response that shows your understanding of this material. In fact, you may not use all of the questions in your response, but you should show a full comprehension of the material.
Your entire original post and peer response will be evaluated based on your knowledge of the content, your ability to compose a thoughtful and clear response, and your ability to engage with your classmates regarding the topic.
