Weekly lecture notes are designed as overviews to the topic for the respective week and should not serve as a citation or reference. Must be at least 400 words or more (not including the references). A total of 3 references APA style must be used within the last 5 years; nothing later than that.
In your discussion question response, provide a substantive response that illustrates a well-reasoned and thoughtful response; is factually correct with relevant scholarly citations, references, and examples; and that demonstrates a clear connection to the readings.
