Discussion Board Forums Instructions
Discussion boards are collaborative learning experiences. For each forum, you are required to post 1 thread of at least 400 words. For each thread, you must support your assertions with at least 2 citations in current APA format. Acceptable sources include the textbook, the Bible, and electronic sources (excluding Wikipedia).
Submit your thread by 10:59 p.m. (CST) on Friday of the assigned module/week.
Topic: Terrorist Financing and the Role of the Media
Thread Prompt: What do you believe the role of the media is in the “War on Terror?” Why? Do you believe that the terrorism and the media have a symbiotic relationship (they benefit from each other)? Why or why not?
Discussion Board Instructions
There will be 7 Discussion Board Forums throughout this course. You are required to provide a thread in response to the provided topic for each forum. Each thread is to be a minimum of 250 words, cite at least 2 academic sources, and demonstrate course-related knowledge. In addition to the thread, you are required to reply to 2 other classmates’ threads. Each reply must be a minimum of 100 words and must cite at least 2 academic sources. Acceptable sources include the textbook, peer-reviewed journal articles, government sources/websites, and professional association websites. In addition to academic support, students must apply a Chrisitian worldview perspective and integrate Biblical scripture support for all posts.
Responding to a classmate’s post requires both the addition of new ideas and analysis. A particular point made by the classmate must be addressed and built upon by your analysis in order to move the conversation forward. Thus, the response post is a rigorous assignment that requires you to build upon initial posts to develop deeper and more thorough discussion of the ideas introduced in the initial posts. As such, reply posts that merely affirm, restate or unprofessionally quarrel with the previous post(s) and fail to make a valuable, substantive contribution to the discussion will receive appropriate point deductions.
The Post First feature has been activated in the Discussion Board Forums for this course. You will need to post your thread before you will be able to view and reply to other students’ threads.
The threads are due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday of the assigned modules/weeks, and the replies are due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of the same modules/weeks except for Module/Week 8. For Module/Week 8, the thread is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, and the replies are due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Friday.
