DISCUSSION ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS

The student will complete 2 Discussions in this course. The student will post one thread of at

least 600 words. For each thread, students must support their assertions with at least 3 scholarly

citations in APA format, in addition to at least 1 Holy Bible reference. The student must then

post 2 replies of at least 300 words. Each reply must incorporate at least 1 scholarly citation in

APA format in addition to at least 1 Holy Bible reference. Acceptable sources include the

Snipes: Vold’s Theoretical Criminology, peer-reviewed articles, and the Bible.

 

Note: 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.
