After successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
Please join the forums each week. Replies must be posted in the week due and replies after the end of the each week will not be graded. The Forums are for student interaction and input should be submitted before the week ends in order to fully participate in the discussions. Students should demonstrate their own knowledge in the forums and avoid copying and pasting from websites.
Students will be responsible for providing a peer response posting for at least two (2) of their peers’ postings, unless there are less than 3 students in the course, where only one (1) peer posting will be required. Your peer postings should challenge or expound upon at least one of the points made by your peer, and “I agree” does not constitute as an adequate response. As graduate students, you will be expected to provide comprehensive, relevant and well supported points in your assignments.
We all bring something unique to the classroom, from our understanding, our experiences, and our value systems. We honor and respect each person’s diverse beliefs to help us see beyond the classroom to be the most effective individuals we can be. Therefore, we should all be respectful of others while expressing our viewpoints and opinions. Proper netiquette behavior is expected. Any inflammatory, demeaning or disrespectful language in a posting will be immediately removed from the discussion space.
Final Project: the Final project will be graded in accordance with the APUS 500-600 rubric as outlined in detail in the classroom. All course research papers must be submitted to Turnitin.com AND to the student assignment folder for grading. If the student submit a paper that is either missing citations, is not properly paraphrased (i.e. you have a high amount of matching text from external sources per Turnitin) or has numerous direct quotes, you may be asked to re-write the assignment, will have major points deducted, or the student may receive a zero on the assignment.
