Learning Goal: I’m working on a management discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Please read the Week 1 resources and participate in this discussion.Review the Discussion Participation Instructions in the syllabus and remember that Discussions include an Initial Post due the fifth day of the academic week (Sundays) and 2 Peer Responses due the last day of the academic week (Tuesdays). Read Efficiently: Efficiency is crucial in an 8 week course. It is a good idea to explore the questions before you read the Learning Resources so that the questions can guide your reading. Jot down notes as you read for how you might use the text to answer questions. This practice will help you be more efficient in using your time in this intense course. Paraphrase: Paraphrasing is a crucial skill. Remember that paraphrasing is more than changing a few words or the order of the words from the text. Paraphrasing means that you have taken in the text, ingested it, so to speak. You comprehend it and you explain its meaning to your reader in your own words. It is a challenging skill to learn, but you can do it, and I will help you! Cite: Citation tells your readers where to look if your comments prompt them to do their own research. It strengthens the credibility of your written work. Citation backs you up, so to speak. It allows you to associate your name with the names of great scholars like Lynda Shaffer. Finally, citation gives credit where credit is due. Cite the required readings at least 3 times, and cite broadly from a broad range, not the same reading 3 times. Chicago style citation is the preferred method for UMGC in the History Program. However, for the purposes of Discussions, a simplified form of parenthetical citation is all that is required. For example, for George Fredrickson, the following would work. (George Fredrickson, 107) I am using 107 simply as an example. Insert the appropriate page in place of 107. The second time you cite the same Fredrickson article, you may use the short form: (Fredrickson, 111) Another example from this week would be as follows. (Neighbors, Griffith, and Carty) You may cite the background and context your professor provides in the weekly Introductions & Checklists as follows. (Collins, Week 1) You may use outside sources in addition to the required readings. (3 citations from more than one required reading are still required.) If you use a website that I have not provided, please add a Works Cited section and a link to your source at the bottom of the post for your readers.=================================================================No later than the fifth day of the academic week of class (Sundays), please respond to this thread by writing an essay of at least 250 words that addresses each item in one of the following question sets. Note which question you are answering in your post:Identify and explain the three (3) Reconstruction Amendments of the US Constitution. What, if any, impacts did these Amendments have on the lives of African American men, women, and/or children during and after the Reconstruction Era?
What happened to Native Americans as white settlers, railroad companies, and mining operations settled the lands west of the Mississippi? Does the call “Go West, Young Man!” ultimately justify the end result from any perspective? (Yes, No and Why?) (Yes-and-No and Why?)
Your Initial Post is expected to be a 250+-word prose essay, with a thesis statement and 2-5 paragraphs supporting and explaining the thesis. Remember to base your response on information and analysis from the readings. Cite the information and analysis you provide. Explain what you learned in your own words, and do your best to synthesize the authors’ analyses into your own original analysis; do not rely exclusively on quotations from the readings to make your points. Please change the title of your post to something unique. Note which question you have chosen to answer. Your Initial Post should be up by the fifth day of the academic week (Sundays).
