of your opinion on which author you agree with and why. The papers will be submitted through a drop box in Angel. The paper must be three to four pages long. A rubric for the papers is posted on Angel under “Lessons” – “Essays”. The due dates and issues are as follows: Paper 1: due July 29, choose one issue from Issues 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 10, OR 11 Paper 2: due August 17, choose one issue from Issues 8, 13, 16, 18, 19, 20, OR 21 Discussion Boards: There will be five discussion boards during the class. The discussion boards will be based on a specific issue in the Taking Sides, Clashing Views on Social Issues (Kurt Finsterbusch) textbook. Each student will post a brief summary of the two sides of the issue presented by the authors (i.e., the author’s main arguments) and your own informed opinion concerning the issue. Students will be given extra credit points for responding (commenting on) to at least one other student’s posting (5 points for responding to at least one posting and 10 points for responding to more than one). These responses must be more than just an “I agree” or “I disagree” statement. You must give reasons, new information, probing questions, and/or evidence to support your responses/comments. A discussion board etiquette guide is posted on Angel under “Lessons” – “Discussion Forums”. Points will be deducted for improper Internet etiquette. A rubric for the discussion boards is also posted on Angel under “Lessons” – “Discussion Forums”. The due dates and issues for the discussion boards are as follows: DB 1: July 15 (Issue 1) DB 2: July 22 (Issue 6) DB 3: July 29 (Issue 12) DB 4: August 5 (Issue 5) DB 5: August 12 (Issue 17) 3

    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.
