Discussion Board Forum – General Instructions
Each Discussion Board Forum will be completed over the span of 2 modules/weeks. Each thread must be at least 1,000 words and will analyze a provided case study. Each reply must be at least 450 words. In the first module/week, you will submit your thread through the SafeAssign link to check for plagiarism before submitting it to the Discussion Board Forum. In the following module/week, you will reply to 2 other classmates’ threads.
For each thread and reply, you must support your assertions with a minimum of 3 scholarly sources other than the course textbook and materials. Each source must be cited in current APA format. Each thread and reply must include both full citations in a reference list at the end of each post and short in-text citations. Acceptable sources include books, legal and business journals, legal cases, the law (cases, statutes, regulations, etc.), the Bible, biblical commentary, etc. Dictionaries and other web sources that lack scholarly support are not considered acceptable sources.
A well-developed, complete analysis of the situation, from a spiritual perspective, requires more than simply adding a verse from the Bible to the post. Each thread will include at least 2 separate verses from Scripture, quoted and applied as an integral part of your discussion of the applicable issues in the context of a biblical worldview.
