Reaction papers are a critical component of the conversation that will take place in this course. There will be a total of five different reaction papers throughout the course. For each of the papers, students should clearly identify their topics and present their personal viewpoints or perspectives; however, students must also present a factual basis for those viewpoints (as opposed to an opinion paper). All references supporting the factual basis must be properly cited to the original sources in accordance with APA guidelines. All papers must be the work of the individual student – these are not group assignments. Papers will be submitted to the Assignment box and posted to their respective Discussion Boards no later than Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of the modules in which they are assigned. (These Assignment boxes maybe linked to Turnitin.) Additionally, there will be a discussion on the reaction papers in the subsequent module. Students will post responses to at least one classmate’s paper by the Thursday of the following module following the same guidelines and expectations used for the active learning discussion questions. Below is the schedule for the reaction papers.
