For each discussion, you must answer the questions posted (thoughtfully, and with citations where appropriate). The post should be approximately 2 paragraphs long. Then, respond to at least two classmates’ posts. Each response should be approximately 1 paragraph long. I encourage everyone to read the responses to their posts. A Grading Rubric will be provided in the discussions.
