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. Each reply will include at least 1 Scripture verse
integrated in the same manner.
This course utilizes the Post-First feature in all Discussion Board Forums. This means you will
only be able to read and interact with your classmates’ threads after you have submitted your
thread in response to the provided prompt. For additional information on Post-First, click
here for a tutorial.
To successfully post a thread, you must both (1) upload a Microsoft Word copy of the thread to
the provided SafeAssign assignment link and (2) copy the content of the thread and paste it into
the Discussion Board Forum. Do not post attachments in the forum; they will not be accepted or
graded.
Submit your threads by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Friday of the module/week in which it is assigned,
