When you address this question, your discussion should be at least 150 words. It is ideal that you use your own words. Do NOT copy and paste from the Internet and please do not plagiarize. This post should include a scholarly reference within the past 5 years, unless you are using a historical reference article. A scholarly reference is defined as a peer-reviewed journal article published.

If you use a direct quotation in your post, you MUST put quotation marks around it AND you MUST cite the source at the end of your post using proper APA 6th format style. It is NOT simply enough to put a source or a website at the end. You should also include an in-text citation in your reference. In APA if you have a reference, you must have an in-text citation. Do NOT use Wikipedia as a source.

In addition, to your main post, respond to at least 1 post by another student about the topic. These posts should be at least 75 words and be substantive in nature. While pleasantries such as “I agree” or “great job” are nice, this is not considered quality effort. If you agree or disagree with someone please tell us why. If you want to use a scholarly journal to refute or agree with a colleague this is perfectly acceptable.
