Discussion Board Forum Instructions
Reviewed April 13, 2018
There will be Five Discussion Board Forums throughout the course. The purpose of Discussion Board Forums is to generate interaction among students in regard to relevant course topics. Your initial thread must be at least 250 words, and your replies (at least two) must be at least 100 words each. For each initial thread, you must support your assertions with at least one citation in current APA format. Refer to Chapters six and seven of your APA Publication Manual for help in creating properly-formatted citations and references. Acceptable sources include the course textbooks, the Bible, scholarly articles, and possibly other appropriate sources that you are able to locate through the Jerry Falwell Online Library. For your replies, quoting what another student included in his or her thread is not considered part of the word count. Post-First
This course utilizes the Post-First feature in all Discussion Board Forums. This means you will only be able to read and interact with your classmates’ threads after you have submitted your thread in response to the provided prompt.
