Week 2: Negotiation & Communication to Term Plan

Week 2: Negotiation & Communication to Term Plan

In Week 1, you submitted a draft Term Plan. In this week, your Chair/Mentor will review your initial draft. Then you will work together with your Chair to develop a final version that you will commit to and submit as an Assignment by the end of Week 2. If no revisions were required to the Week 1 Term Plan, a submission is not required for Assignment 2.


By Day 7 of Week 2:

Revise your Term Plan draft from Week 1, if required, taking into consideration any suggested changes and applying any mandatory corrections as instructed by your Chair/Mentor.

If revisions were required, submit the revised, chair-approved version of your Term Plan in the Assignment 2 link shown here.

Assignment 2



Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.

Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.

APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using
the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
