To answer questions, click on reply at the bottom of the page. It is best practice to write your response in a word processing program like Word and copy and paste it into the reply text box. All responses should be substantial. Class discussion of the chapters assigned for each week in the Discussion Board is a significant component of this course. The class, as a learning community, relies on this asynchronous communication to engage in collective and individual knowledge construction. For each Canvas Discussion Board Assignment, all students should respond at least twice weekly to the discussion board in addition to your response to the main thread questions.

  • Please copy all the questions for the week, answer them, and paste your responses into the discussion board.
