The main body of your initial post should be at least 500+ words and in APA format (including Times New Roman with font size 12). Do not post any title section within the discussion forum.
Your initial post should be based upon the assigned reading for the week, so the textbook should be a source listed in your reference section and cited within the body of the text. The textbook needs to be well utilized in answering all of the questions. Other sources are not required but feel free to use them if they aid in your discussion. However, do not substitute other sources for the textbook.
