The discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this week based on the course competencies covered. For this assignment, make sure you post your initial response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned. Provide a detailed response to the topic questions in the Discussion Area. For this assignment, post your responses directly in the Discussion Area; do not attach any documents.
To support your work, make sure you use your course and text readings. When asked, also use outside sources. As in all assignments, cite the sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.
Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your classmates as early in the week as possible. Respond to at least two of your classmates. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Complete your participation for this assignment by the end of the week.
Drafting the Background Section
For this week’s discussion, you will present a draft of the background section of your project. This section will build upon the introduction and explain in detail the problem that you are studying. In our example of postrelease employment, the background section would include data that define the problem: recidivism, unemployment among parolees, and perhaps some input from actual parole officers about the difficulties faced by parolees and the effects of those difficulties. Be sure to incorporate feedback provided by the instructor from your Week 2 Project.
Review the posts submitted by at least two of your classmates and share feedback. Be sure to review the feedback provided for your submission too. This discussion will help you recognize the aspects of your problem that you may not have considered or point out areas that require better explanation.
