Initial posts must be 250+ words, using correct grammar and spellcheck, posted. Part of the requirement for asubstantive post is to bring something new to the conversation. Read the forum prompt and fully answer it, demonstrate understanding of the lesson/content, include evidence from firsthand experience, reference to the course materials, and apply what you’re discussing to work, life, and reality. For your discussion this week we are reading a part of Thomas Paine's Common Sense . Published in early 1776, this short book offers a series of arguments in favor of independence from Great Britain and the formation of an American republic. The text is broken up into four chapters. Each of you will read one of those chapters based on the first letter of your last name. If your last name begins with… A, B, C, D or E read chapter one:

In the forum this week, you’ll do three things. First, I’d like to you identify what you believe the thesis to be of your chapter. What is Paine’s main argument? Next, explain how he backs up that argument. And finally, point out what you feel is the most important or convincing piece of evidence that he uses.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
