Chapter#3 – Use of Theory
Readings: The purpose of this discussion postings is for students to read the assigned textbook chapters (Creswell Ch. #3, APA Ch. #3), synthesize the information, and then critically think and share the information with other students using their own words.
The initial postings must be substantively provided with a minimum of four paragraphs for each textbook chapter – one paragraph for each interesting fact from each assigned reading – (four (4) for each chapter). Each paragraph must contain a minimum of three (3) robust sentences. CAUTION: It is not appropriate to make postings like “I found the information on XXXX to be interesting” as this is not a substantive posting. The postings must be provided informing the reader that you understand the interesting facts you are posting – as if you are teaching the reader about the interesting fact. Remember that these postings must be in your own words.
