You are required to complete 4 Discussion Board Forums throughout this course. You will research a topic, compose a thread discussing the topic, and reply to at least 2 classmates' threads. Research outside the textbook is required for each forum. Acceptable research sources include your textbook, periodicals, journals, newspapers, magazines, and the Bible. Your thread must have a minimum of 3 cited references, and there must be 1 cited reference for each reply. The research required for each Discussion Board topic can be accomplished at our Liberty University Online Library via Services/Support on the course menu. Look under Academic Resources for the Library link. (Sources such as Wikipedia, About.com, book reviews and blogs are prohibited.)
In each thread and reply, you must demonstrate a fundamental understanding of the economic theory and outside research for the specific topic. You must adhere to current APA style when formatting your posts and citing your sources.
Each thread must contain at least 4 paragraphs, including a minimum of 300 words.
In the first paragraph, discuss the relevant economic theory of your topic (your textbook is a good source for this paragraph).
In the second, you must include outside research that adds additional detail about your topic (from the Liberty University Online Library or elsewhere – do not use Wikipedia, or other “pedias” for this). In other words use your source to further define the topic, illustrate its relevancy, or in some way provide more information about the topic, but do not provide an example
