The Community Discussion Board is an active learning opportunity where you will reflect on course content and process your learning with other students. This board is not simply an “opinion board.” Rather, it is a mechanism for you to engage with your peers as you dissect and synthesize course content. That said, please make sure that your original post contains a minimum of two citations from peer-reviewed resources, one of which may be from a textbook or other course materials. These sources should be listed at the bottom of your post. In addition, please make sure that your post adheres to APA style and formatting.
